>Dear colleagues,
>I am pleased to send you the second circular for the Progress in 
>Echinoderm Palaeobiology Conference that we will celebrate next June 
>in Spain. This conference will celebrate the career of our colleague 
>and friend Dr. Andrew Smith, a world-renowned specialist in 
>echinoderms who retired in late 2012.
>The conference will be focused on Echinoderm Palaeobiology, a major 
>area of interest for Andrew. Contributed presentations will review 
>the current state of knowledge for a range of fossil groups, 
>highlighting recent advances, but more importantly identifying areas 
>of uncertainty and possible future research paths. In addition, 
>there will be short workshops on Spanish fossil material and 
>state-of-the-art analytical techniques for studying echinoderms 
>(e.g. tomography, computer modelling and 3-D printing). Finally, 
>there will be a field trip to visit several important Palaeozoic 
>outcrops in northern Spain, which have yielded a wide variety of 
>fossil echinoderms.
>The format of the meeting including scientific sessions, interactive 
>workshop and a relatively long field trip will give us the 
>opportunity to discuss, at length and in an enjoyable atmosphere, 
>different scientific topics. This is also an excellent opportunity 
>for early career researchers to promote their research to an 
>international audience of echinoderm experts.
>Note that the second circular also includes a pre-registration form. 
>We will appreciate very much if people interested attending the 
>meeting fill the form and return to us before the end of October.
>For general questions about the meeting or scientific sessions, 
>please contact Samuel Zamora

>Sincerely yours,
>The organizing committee,
>Follow us!!!
