International Palaeontological Congress IPC5 in Paris 2018
The 5th International Palaeontological Congress IPC5 took place in Paris, France. Almost 1000 delegates from 60 contries joined during the Fossil Week to present their latest results and to discuss their research at the IPC5 in Paris from 9-13 July 2018. The congress is organized every four years under the auspices of the International Palaeontological Association. After Sydney (Australia) in 2002, Beijing (P.R. China) in 2006, London (United Kingdom) in 2010 and Mendoza (Argentina) in 2014, it was convened in Paris (France).
I gave a presentation on the neck of birds in the symposium S7 – Birds in the past environments. and enjoyed discussing my results with internationally renowned colleagues. It was a highly interesting conference with a number of inspiring talks and posters. You can have a look at the abstracts book [here].
