organising a variety of meetings. The AGM of the society is held each
Autumn and the society participates in organising a range of events and
meetings with other palaeontological organisations. The constituent
specialist groups of TMS also organise their own meetings, generally
involving (but not limited to) an annual event in the Spring/Summer.

III: Geologic Problem Solving with Microfossils
The North American Micropaleontology Section (NAMS) of SEPM announces
the Third Geological Problem Solving with Microfossils Conference
(Microfossils III) to be held March 10th-13th, 2013 at the University
of Houston, Houston, Texas, USA. The mission of Microfossils III is to
bring together geoscientists from academia, industry and government to
focus on the use of microfossil to solve geologic problems. The
conference is open to all microfossil specialties. Conference
activities include: oral and poster technical presentations, a regional
pre-meeting field trip, post-meeting short courses, ice breaker, and
plenary dinner at the Houston Museum of Natural Science. Abstract
