European Course on Paleontology in Lyon (France)

31-Jan-2011 - 10-Feb-2011

We are happy to open the registration for European Course on
Paleontology in Lyon (France). The course is based on conferences
spreading out from January 31 to February 10, 2011.

Various research domains such as aspects of early life evolution,
Dinosaurs, Primates, or Evo-Devo of dentition have been retained.
Lecturers are selected on the basis on their work and competences
concerning the retained topics. These topics will thus be presented by
leaders of these areas. Every day, two lecturers of the same field will
present their research and participate together to a round-table
discussion with the students.

Already confirmed lecturers include Zhe-Xi Luo (Carnegie Museum,
Pittsburgh), Mike Benton (University of Bristol), Charles Wellman
(University of Sheffield), Carole Gee (University of Bonn),
Jean-S├ębastien Steyer (National Natural History Museum, Paris), Emmanuel
Fara (University of Burgundy, Dijon), Ann Huysseune (University of
Ghent), Jean Vannier (University of Lyon1), and Francis Albarede (ENS Lyon).
