The Micropalaeontological Society


TMS is involved in 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.

We’re still looking for volunteers to host the 2023 Annual Conference in November 2023! If you are interested in hosting the AGM then please contact Information on previous TMS AGMs is available here.

Lyell Meetings
TMS collaborates, via the Joint Council for Palaeontology, with the Geological Society of London, the Palaeontological Association and the Palaeontographical Society to organise the annual Lyell Meetings. The themes of these are different each year, but the overall concept is to highlight the role of palaeontology in the earth sciences.

Group Meetings
The constituent specialist groups of TMS also organise their own meetings, which are held regularly throughout the year. For details on these, you should refer to the group’s page: Foraminifera – OstracodPalynologyNannofossilSilicofossil.

Code of conduct
