FORAMS 2023 @ Perugia
Jun 26 – Jun 30 all-day

FORAMS 2023 

FORAMS 2022, the next International Symposium on Foraminifera, has been postponed to 2023 due to still ongoing pandemic conditions: therefore, it is now labelled as FORAMS 2023.

The symposium will be held from June 26th to June 30th 2023.

It is our wish to pursue an “in attendance” conference and meeting and we do not wish to switch into a fully online one. Perugia (Italy) will be still our venue as previously planned.

The website URL (www.forams2022.it) will remain the same to minimize the changes and all deadlines have been simply postponed by one year.

The Organising Committee is proud to announce you FORAMS 2022, the next International Symposium on Foraminifera to be held in Perugia (Italy). All contributions regarding or involving Foraminifera are welcome.

We will host communications about new achievements coming from any research field involving foraminiferal biology and palaeontology, including genomics, experimental biology, growth analyses, environmental sensitivity, biomineralisation, biomonitoring, palaeoecology, biostratigraphy, palaeogeography, taxonomy, oil industry, geological applications, etc…

A call for sessions will open soon, to give all researchers the opportunity for highlighting particular topics. Pre-symposiums and post-symposium fieldtrips are planned to visit localities where both modern and fossil foraminifera can be observed/sampled.

We’ll be able to host workshops and scientific meetings upon request. Please keep checking the website as in the next few weeks it will be populated with info, news and calls for sessions!

Deadlines:

  • Call for field trips: 31 December 2021
  • Call for sessions: 30 August 2022
  • Early bird registration: 31 December 2022
  • Abstract submission: 1 April 2023

 

Organising Committee:

  • Antonino Briguglio (Genova, Italy)
  • Giulia Margaritelli (Perugia, Italy)
  • Cesare A. Papazzoni (Modena, Italy)
  • Maria Rose Petrizzo (Milano, Italy)
  • Roberto Rettori (Perugia, Italy)

TMS Meetings and Sponsored / Related Meetings

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. The constituent specialist groups of TMS also organise their own meetings, generally involving (but not limited to) an annual event in the Spring/Summer. Links to the pages for each of these groups of events can be found below.

 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

Group meetings are held regularly throughout the year. For details of these you should refer to the individual Specialist Group (ForaminiferaMicrovertebrateOstracodPalynologyNannofossilSilicofossil)

Previous TMS AGMs and other whole society meetings

Information on the coming years AGM will be placed on these page at the relevant time. Information on previous TMS AGMs and other meetings is available here
