Scientific programme

The meeting will consist of two days of oral presentations and poster sessions. The theme of the meeting will be: The Micropalaeontological record of global change: from epicontinental seas to open ocean The meeting is open to all foraminiferal and nannofossil researchers and students to present their results on any aspect of taxonomy, ecology, paleoecology, biogeography, and global change research. Following the tradition established at earlier meetings, the priority will be to facilitate the presentation of results by students and junior researchers. The technical sessions will be followed by a one-day field trip to a Upper Cretaceous rocky-shore and littoral facies yielding foraminifera and calcareous nannoplankton, near the historic town of Kutná Hora.
