Past Meetings


Geologic Problem Solving with Microfossils II Conference

March 15-18, 2009, University of Houston, Houston, Texas, USA

The North American Micropaleontology Section (NAMS) of SEPM was pleased to host the second international conference on Geologic Problem Solving with Microfossils, "Microfossils II".

"Microfossils II" brought together a diverse range of geoscientists to showcase the problem-solving power of microfossils across a broad variety of geologic settings. More than 100 participants attended, contributing a strong program of presentations and posters that highlighted applications of micropaleontology abd stimulating the “cross-fertilization” of ideas.


2005 Geological Problem Solving with Microfossils Conference

March 6-11, 2005, Rice University, Houston, Texas, USA

NAMS hosted the SEPM Research Conference “Geologic Problem Solving with Microfossils - An International Conference in Memory of Garry D. Jones “ from March 6-11, 2005, at Rice University, Houston, Texas. The conference attracted 150 attendees from industry, academia and government from 23 countries.

The technical program was comprised of 48 oral and 51 poster presentations that collectively covered the various microfossil groups that have utility to solve geologic problems, and addressed topics as diverse as Eustacy and Tectonics, Paleooceanography, Biochronologic Correlation, Reservoirs and Drilling, Ecologic Analogs, and Tools and Techniques.

SEPM has made the Conference Abstract with Program available on their website in PDF format (please CLICK HERE)

The conference also was an excellent opportunity for interaction among micropaleontologists from industry, academia, and government. NAMS gratefully acknowledges the support of our corporate sponsors and co-sponsoring societies for their role in making this conference a great success.
