4th Palaeontological Virtual Congress

Congrès, colloques, réunions


8-22 mai 2023



The increasing use of virtual platforms to communicate science encouraged us to create the 1st Palaeontological Virtual Congress in December 2018, followed by the second edition in May 2020, and the third edition in December 2021. The three firsts editions were a success, so we are glad to present the fourth edition of the Palaeontological Virtual Congress. Our purpose is to spread, worldwide, the most recent scientific advances in palaeontology in a fast, easy and economical way.


Our initiative was pioneering in palaeontology, being the first exclusively virtually developed conference in our field. In these challenging times, online platforms have gained great relevance and are key to keep up the drive for science communication among peers and enthusiasts. This year we did not want to miss the opportunity of offering you this platform so you can share your amazing research with the world, either by oral communications or slides presentations.


Even when online meetings are the norm, our main aim is still the same: to give international projection to the palaeontological research carried out by groups with limited economic resources, as well as to promote the participation of palaeontologists from developing countries around the world. And this is reflected in our low-cost registration fees. In order to reach out as widely as possible to researchers with fewer resources, this year, as in the previous edition, we have created a social fund for participants from low and lower-middle income countries listed as such by The World Bank.
