Cal Paleo on April 14 at UC Riverside

From Cal Paleo...

Dear Colleagues,

We would like to announce that this year’s Cal Paleo will be held at UC Riverside on Saturday, April 14th, 2012. We encourage you to attend and take part in this California paleontological tradition!

The focus of the conference will be on student research: graduate students are invited to give oral or poster presentations and undergraduate students are encouraged to participate through poster presentations (though, subject to availability and advisor request, undergraduates may also give talks). The time allotted for each oral presentation will be 10-15 minutes, depending on the number of speakers.

The deadline for abstract submission is March 1st, 2012. Registration will close on March 21st, 2012. There is no registration fee. Additionally, breakfast, lunch and dinner will be provided on the day of the conference. We will shortly supply further details concerning registration, abstract publication, accommodation and possible Sunday, April 15th activities.

An informational website will be up shortly. An abstract template has been attached to this email and a formal registration form will be sent out soon as well. In the meantime, in order to help us gauge numbers and plan accordingly, please reply as to your interest in attending Cal Paleo: “definitely,” “maybe” or “no.” Also let us know if you wish to be removed from the Cal Paleo mailing list to avoid receiving further emails.

Please direct all email correspondence to

We hope very much to see you all on April 14th!

  1. The jet-black background makes this website difficult to visually read. I am not trying to be a curmudgeon; this is just meant to be a helpful suggestion for the webmaster. Thanks, Robert H. Sydnor, geologist, Fair Oaks, California
