Annual Meeting (Symposium) Panel

The Conservation Paleobiology Network will sponsor an annual meeting (Conservation Paleobiology Symposium). See the list below for general aims of the symposia. For more detailed information, click on the link below to access the symposium guidelines.

General Aims of the Conservation Paleobiology Symposia
• Annual symposia will support the aims of the CPN.
• The long-term goal is to establish a lasting framework for periodic meetings for conservation paleobiology which should provide fora to assist in the translation of historical and paleontological science to the conservation of global biodiversity.
• Fora should:
       1) Facilitate connections amongst CPN members to develop research and applications of CPN themes.
       2) Facilitate and report back on application of Conservation Paleobiology (CP) to modern conservation practice.
       3) Help extend the network by building bridges among sub-disciplines and geographic areas that are not adequately represented in the CPN.
       4) Support young researchers, scientists and policy makers, especially those from under-represented groups.
       5) Generate information, based on evidence from evaluation activities, aimed at supporting the decision-making and learning processes of the CPN.
