Chris Stringer (Natural History Museum, London) - Ancient Human Occupation of Britain
Peter Bijl (Utrecht University) - IODP Wilkes Land Glacial History
Ken Johnson (Natural History Museum, London) - EU Indonesian Throughflow project
Bridget Wade (Leeds University) - Tanzanian Drilling Project
Wolfgang Kiessling (Museum für Naturkunde, Berlin) - PBDB – coral biodiversity
Paul Upchurch (University College London) - PBDB – Cretaceous vertebrate biodiversity
Mark Sutton (Imperial College London) - Imaging and Virtual Palaeontology
Richard Twitchett (Plymouth University) - Co-evolution of Life and the Planet
Richard Edmonds - Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site
