Annual conference 2020

The annual meetings of the Society are the platform on which the members of the Society meet and exchange information

Members, guests and invited scientists present their research results, young scientists meet with experienced "old hands".

The annual conference takes place at annually changing locations. Universities, museums and other research institutions invite the Society to attend, and the General Assembly decides where the next meeting will be held on the basis of proposals received.


Annual conference and general meeting 2020 cancelled!

The Paläontologische Gesellschaft withdraws its participation (including the annual meeting) in the GeoUtrecht because of the Corona pandemic. The general meeting is cancelled this year. This announcement can also be found in the current GMIT (issue 80).

We will inform you on our website about the further development and possible replacement dates.
