09:00 to 16:00


John B Reid Theatre, AGSM Building, UNSW Sydney


School of Biological, Earth and Environmental Sciences

Type of event: 


Audience / Guests: 

Public / All

The day is intended to be an informal get-together for all locally based palaeontologists. There are a limited number of short-talk slots available (8 minutes + 2 minutes questions for professionals, 4 minutes + 1 minute questions for students), but attendees are not required to make presentations in order to attend. 

This symposium will be one of several held over the next few months by states and territories across Australia. The talks will be made available to the general public and wider palaeontological community via the Australasian Palaeontologists (AAP) Facebook page. For this reason, talks should be as jargon-free as possible.

Morning and afternoon tea will be provided. Numerous lunch options are available in the AGSM Cafe and nearby food court (100 m walk).


RSVP by 19th April 2019 to Dr Troy Myers (

Please provide a short abstract (1-2 paragraphs) with your RSVP if you wish to present. 

You don’t need to be a member of AAP, the PANGEA Research Centre or the Riversleigh Society to attend the symposium, so please distribute this invitation to any NSW-based palaeontologist not on the invite list.

Car parking may be difficult in and around UNSW so you may want to consider public transportation, taxi or an Uber.
