Dear Paleonet Subscriber:

This is a reminder about the forthcoming topical session "Taxonomy and Technology: Application of Biometry, Computer Vision and Machine Learning to Classification Problems in Paleontology", which will be held at the Geological Society of America Annual Meeting 2012 in Charlotte, North Carolina, USA (4–7 November).

The aim of this topical session is to draw together contributions from researchers who are developing and/or applying tools from fields such as digital imaging, pattern recognition, computer vision and machine learning, to classification problems in paleontology and allied sciences. Further information about the session can be found on our website (http://www.nhm.ac.uk/hosted_sites/paleonet/GSA/).

The electronic abstracts submission form is now live and can be found at http://www.geosociety.org/meetings/2012/techProg.htm

The deadline for abstract submission is 14 August 2012. Invited speakers include Dr Dileepan Joseph (Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Alberta) and Dr Thomas Ezard (Department of Mathematics, University of Surrey).

We look forward to seeing you in Charlotte,

Luke Mander, Norman MacLeod and Surangi Punyasena
