The Palynology group held our 6th Joint Meeting with the Silicofossil group on 1st July 2022, organised by Chloe Walker-Trivett, Phil Jardine, Savannah Worne, Martin Tetard and Matt Pound (local meeting host). This meeting was hybrid, with a small contingent of attendees gathering in person at Northumbria University, Newcastle, and the rest of our attendees joining the event over Zoom. This meant we were lucky to have participants from multiple different time zones and countries joining us, something that would not have been possible in the pre-COVID times of traditional in-person only conferences. We hope this made the event accessible to those without the budget, time, or means to travel. The variety and quality of talks was excellent, and we would like to thank everyone who participated and made the day a success. Particularly, we would like to thank our keynote speakers; Jen O’Keefe, Sam Slater, Kristen Beck, Volkan Özen, Fabienne Marret and Emma Hocking, all of whom delivered interesting and insightful talks. It was great to see a few faces in person, and the rest virtually, and we hope everyone enjoyed an excellent day of science!
