The TMS Annual General Conference will be held online in Prague on 18 and 19 November 2021.
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!
