For those in the UK/Europe, next year's Lyell Meeting at the Geological Society of London on Thursday 29th March, entitled "Big Palaeontology", will focus on large-scale projects in palaeontology. These projects often involve multidisciplinary geoscience teams from numerous institutions and are playing an increasingly important role in modern palaeontological research. This meeting will showcase the science being undertaken in these projects across the range of palaeontological disciplines, including:

Chris Stringer (Natural History Museum, London) - Ancient Human Occupation of Britain

Henk Brinkhuis (Royal Netherlands Institute for the Sea) - IODP Wilkes Land Glacial History

Ken Johnson (Natural History Museum, London) - EU Indonesian Throughflow project
