After two successful editions, with more than 398 assistants belonging to 44 different nationalities, we have considered to organise the 3rd Palaeontological Virtual Congress (3rd PVC) with the same purpose of spreading worldwide the most recent scientific advances in palaeontology in a fast, easy and economical way. This new edition will take place on December 2021, being exclusively developed in a virtual environment, and organised by a young group of researchers belonging to the Universidad Nacional de Educación a Distancia and University of La Laguna (Spain), the University of Bath and the University of Bristol (UK), Universidad del Mar (Oaxaca, Mexico), CONICET and Universidad Nacional de La Plata (Argentina), and Universidade Nova de Lisboa (Portugal). Oral communications and posters about any palaeontological field will be presented through an online platform created ad hoc. The simplicity of this new format will allow for low-cost registration fees (5€) and saving travel and maintenance expenses for the delegates. Consequently, this initiative aims to give international projection to the paleontological research carried out by groups with limited economic resources and promoting the participation of palaeontologists from developing countries.
