FieldTrip in the Stavelot Massif
2019 awarded Laureates of the Van den Broeck medal on the field during the GB excursion in the region of Malmedy. More details (images, videos, documents, etc) for the GB members in the hidden part [Member login zone]
FieldTrip in the Stavelot Massif
Please find attached the final programme of our fieldtrip in the Stavelot Massif on Friday 4th October.
We had to change the meeting place as a quarry is exceptionally inaccessible to the public. The new venue is in Malmedy, parking Moviemills.
Fifty people will attend the fieldtrip. We ask you to try to come together to have a minimum of cars. If you come alone to Malmedy, we will try to group people there.
Don’t forget your yellow jacket and your helmet: they are mandatory to enter into the quarries.
The entrance fees to the Schieferstollen underground quarry are 7 € per person. We will collect the money during lunch time. Could you try to have the exact amount?

Please find here linked the PalEurAfrica2019 congress (2nd Circular) of the PalEurAfrica congress, the PalEurAfrica2019 congress (Registration Form), and the PalEurAfrica2019 congress (Abstract Template) (please return the two latter to PalEurAfrica2019@naturalsciences.be).
The Deadline for abstract submission is fixed on June 15th 2019.
As part of the PalEurAfrica network research project (www.PalEurAfrica.be), we are happy to invite you from September 10 to 13, 2019 to the Royal Belgian Institute of Natural Sciences (RBINS) for an international symposium on the Evolution and Paleoenvironment of Early Modern Vertebrates during the Paleogene.
This symposium will gather specialists who work on macro- and micropaleontology, bio- and isotope stratigraphy, paleoenvironment, paleogeography, and geology of Paleogene vertebrate bearing sites.
This international meeting will also celebrate the memory of one of our PalEurAfrica partners, Gregg F. Gunnell (1954-2017), who died tragically and unexpectedly in the middle of his career, having made significant contributions to our understanding of Paleogene vertebrate evolutionary history.
