Summer Symposium

Welcome! Please join us on the weekend of August 2 & 3, 2014 for the 8th Annual Summer Symposium at the Paleontological Research Institution!

Saturday, August 2nd will feature posters and presentations by professionals, students, and amateurs whose research covers paleontology, earth science, biology or science education. This year’s keynote address will be given by Dr. Linda Ivany of Syracuse University. Breakfast, lunch, and the evening barbecue are included with registration.

On Sunday, August 3rd, Dr. Gordon Baird of SUNY Fredonia will lead a field trip from PRI focused on the Finger Lakes’ Devonian geological history. The field trip will run all day (9am to 5pm). Field trip registration will include lunch, but guests are encouraged to bring their own snacks and water. Please be sure to bring hats, sunscreen, sunglasses, etc. and wear closed-toe shoes.

Proceed to the registration page to sign up for one or both of these exciting days. If you are doing research, please also sign up to share it with us in a talk or a poster presentation! Both talk and poster session slots are limited, so sign up today!

We look forward to seeing you this summer at PRI!
