2nd Palaeontological Virtual Congress May 1-15, 2020

Written by Luca Jaselli on Jan. 4, 2020.

The increasing use of virtual platforms to communicate science encouraged us to create the 1st Palaeontological Virtual Congress in December 2018. The first edition was a success, so we are glad to present the second edition of the Palaeontological Virtual Congress. Our purpose is to spread, worldwide, the most recent scientific advances in palaeontology in a fast, easy and economical way.

This congress is pioneer in palaeontology, being exclusively developed in a virtual environment. Oral communications and slides presentation addressing any topic in palaeontology will be presented through an online platform created ad hoc.

The simplicity of this new format allows for low-cost registration fees and saving travel and maintenance expenses. Consequently, this initiative aims to give international projection to the palaeontological research carried out by groups with limited economic resources, as well as to promote the participation of palaeontologists from developing countries.

More detailed information regarding important dates and deadlines, registration, fees, thematic sessions and technical/logistics issues can be found in the congress web page, email ( and social media accounts (Facebook:; and Twitter: @palaeovc).
