GCG members and committee will be present at the Joint ICOM and SPNHC meeting in Edinburgh this summer. In particular, GCG Committee Members will be running sessions derived from our popular Fakes and Pyrite Oxidation workshops. Be sure to sign up as soon as possible as places are limited.
Update: The organising committee has informed us that the event is now postponed until 2022. More details on the website or in this statement.
However, a virtual meeting will be taking place across the same dates, with free registration. More details here.
The SPPC is intended as a forum in which professionals, amateurs and researchers alike, interested in all aspects of preparation, conservation, model-making and related subjects, can participate. The SPPC offers a unique opportunity to meet friends and colleagues and to discuss recent developments, ongoing research, and other, often museum related, projects. Although the SPPC generally precedes the the SVPCA conference, contributions are not limited to the field of vertebrate palaeontology.
SPPC Conferences have been run since 1992, either before or after the SVPCA, and many participants attend both conferences. Over recent years the number of talks on offer has been in decline, and there is a need for discussion on the nature and identity of this event. Conferences are held in a variety of venues, and offer a great opportunity both to share experience and to have the chance to look over the facilities other organisations and how they are used.
We organise or co-organise a number of events every year. Upcoming events are always listed at www.geocurator.org/events/ and from there you will be able to book tickets. If you want to see events that we have run previously, you can head over to the Past Events section of our resources area.
