California State University, Stanislaus will be hosting Cal Paleo, a state-wide Paleontology conference this semester. The conference will be on Saturday April 19 in Naraghi Hall of Science from 9-5.
Since paleontology is by nature interdisciplinary, expect talks and posters on topics ranging from paleoecology, evolution, geology, paleclimates, dinosaurs, anatomy, and on fossils ranging from China to California (such as the Pleistocene mammals and salvage efforts at Fairmead Landfill near Fresno, etc).
There will be a full day of talks, posters, an invited plenary speaker (world-famous dinosaur paleontologist and public educator, Dr. Scott Sampson), and a published abstract volume.
This has traditionally been a small, informal, friendly conference, and it is a great forum for graduate and undergraduates to present their research in, as well as for professionals.For more information, see the Cal Paleo website:
