 Dear colleagues,

I'd like to remind you to register and submit contributions to the 3rd
International Workshop on the Toarcian Oceanic Anoxic Event (IW-TOAE) that
will be hosted in Erlangen (Germany) from 2nd to 5th September 2019
(deadline for abstract submission and reduced fee early registration: May

The IGCP-655 project can support student members and researchers from
emerging countries of the project to the activities programmed in the 3rd
IW-TOAE (up to 800 €; for more information and requirements: please contact
us off list). The meeting include one day of a training course on
quantitative paleobiology, one day of scientific sessions focused on this
event as well two days of guided field trip visiting important
Pliensbachian-Toarcian outcrops.

More information can be found on the website:

The main topic will be “Impact on marine organisms and ecosystems” and will
feature a keynote by Bryony Caswell. This workshop is open to all other
researchers focused on the study of the palaeobiological and
palaeoenvironmental perturbations associated with the
Pliensbachian–Toarcian boundary and the T-OAE. This workshop is intended to
promote an active participation of early career researchers and students.
For that reason, a pre-conference training course is offered focusing on
quantitative analysis of biological patterns, tomography and organic
biomolecules. As a university city, Erlangen offers an academic and
welcoming atmosphere right in the heart of the most iconic Jurassic
outcrops, which will be visited during the two-day post-conference
fieldtrip including Dotterhausen, Buttenheim and Teufelsgraben.
