 Hello everyone,

Please consider submitting a proposal to convene a topical symposium for
10th North American Paleontological Convention (February 14th - February
2014). The conference, hosted by the Florida Museum of Natural History at
University of Florida in Gainesville, is a great place to take field trips
to fossil and
modern localities and visit popular nearby attractions, all the while
warm, sunny weather in the middle of winter.

Symposia are designed to broaden interest and promote avenues of scientific
inquiry within a thematically focused area of paleontology. Proposals must
include the title, names of conveners, short description of the symposium
(1 page
or less), and the symposium format (anticipated number of oral and/or
presentations). A list of named participants that tentatively accepted
invitation to
the proposed symposium can be included to further strengthen the proposal.
Typically, a symposium may include a single oral session (12 to 15 oral
presentations), a single poster session (10-25 posters), or a combined set
including one oral and one poster session.

Session proposals are due by 5:00pm EST on April 1, 2013. Conveners will be
expected to participate in abstract solicitation, abstract review, and
Proposals should be submitted as a single PDF document and emailed to the
NAPC Organizing Committee (NAPC at

Thank you and see you in sunny Florida,
