July 29th – August 2nd, 2019
Die Arbeitsgruppe Paläontologie und Historische Geologie des Institutes für Geologie und Mineralogie der Universität zu Köln richtet in diesem Sommer den 19. Internationalen Karbon-Perm-Kongress aus. http://iccp2019-cologne.uni-koeln.de
The congress, organized every four years, is the most important platform for all disciplines that deal with the geology and palaeontology of the Carboniferous and Permian periods. Four days with edge-cutting scientific sessions and a mid-congress field trip will provide a broad forum and ample time for scientific presentations and discussions.
After the Carboniferous-Permian congresses in Krefeld (1971), Krakow (1998), and Utrecht (2003), the meeting is back to central Europe. The widened spectrum of the congress since the Krefeld meeting and major advances are a unique opportunity to demonstrate the scientific progress in Germany and adjacent countries of Central Europe and to integrate it into a global frame by the presentations of established researchers, young scientists, and students from all over the world. Field trips will give splendid opportunities to explore some of the most classical regions of the Carboniferous, as well as the unique Rotliegend and Zechstein facies of the Central European Permian. Still, the Pennsylvanian to Permian of the Palaeotethys realm is the focus of another scenic field trip.
