The Microfossils conference series is a unique meeting concept because of its broad focus on the use of microfossils for solving geological problems. Session themes are intended to span chronostratigraphy, paleoclimate, paleoceanography, environmental quality assessment, evolution and new technologies, among others. Submissions are not restricted to a particular microfossil discipline either, but are open to all disciplines – calcareous, agglutinated, siliceous, organic-walled, protozoan and metazoan alike. Attendees of past meetings have said that the “open” problem solving theme of the conference and the broad participation of specialists from varied disciplines creates a rich environment for collaboration, and the sharing of ideas and knowledge.
