We are pleased to invite you to the 13th International Symposium on Fossil Cnidaria and Porifera, that will be held in Modena (Italy) on 3-6 September 2019, at the Department of Chemical and Geological Sciences (DSCG) of the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia.
For the first time organized in Italy, the Symposium aims to bring together participants from all over the world to discuss and share the most recent advances of studies on fossil corals and sponges, coral reefs and associated biota. The theme for the upcoming Symposium “Looking back to see ahead” highlights the importance of the fossil archives to understand response of the biosphere to long term environmental perturbations. We promote interdisciplinary approaches from a body of interested paleontologists, biologists but also scholars in other disciplines, and aim to push new boundaries for coral science.
We are looking forward to welcoming you in Modena!
