XXVII Jornadas Sociedad Española de Paleontología

Sabadell, 5-8 Octubre de 2011

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

It is a pleasure to invite you to the XXVII “Jornadas de la Sociedad Española de Paleontología” (Annual meeting of the Spanish Society of Paleontology), that will be held by the Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont(ICP) in Sabadell (Barcelona, Spain) from 5th to 8th October 2011, dedicated to the memory of the distinguished paleontologist Miquel Crusafont from Sabadell, in the year of the centenary of his birth.

The main issue in the SEP 2011 will be “Paleobiology: new concepts and new methods”. 
Paleobiology, a branch of Paleontology which studies biological aspects of extinct organisms, has experimented a great development in few years due to the application in Paleontology of other biological disciplines such as physiology, ecology and biomechanics (Finite Element Analysis) or the utilization of new methods of analysis such as paleohistology, CT-scans or geometric morphometrics. The application of these tools in Paleontology has allowed to infer biological parameters of extinct organisms such as their locomotion, food habits, physiology or ecology. We are pleased to announce that the SEP 2011 meeting will gather for the first time all practitioners of the field, as a way to share each one´s knowledge, findings and concerns, but also as a way to begin opening a window for future collaborations.

Moreover, during the 2011 meeting, presentations dedicated to other fields in Paleontology are also welcome. Everyone is thus invited to come and show his/her work to the paleontological community.

All details can be found at SEP2011 site: Please, feel free to contact the organizing committee (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) for any specific information.

On the other hand, we would like to make a call for the diffusion of this event through your own colleagues and departments.

We are looking forward to meeting all of you in Sabadell!
