2017-NAMS Microfossil Conference

General Information

The North American Micropaleontology Section (NAMS) sponsored Geologic Problem Solving with Microfossils Conference at the Crowne Plaza Hotel and Convention Center on April 5-9, 2017. Microfossils IV will be the fourth in the NAMS-SEPM Microfossils Conference series that was initiated in 2005 and is held every four years.

The Microfossils conference series is a unique meeting concept because of its broad focus on the use of microfossils for solving geological problems. Session themes are intended to span chronostratigraphy, paleoclimate, paleoceanography, environmental quality assessment, evolution and new technologies, among others. Submissions are not restricted to a particular microfossil discipline either, but are open to all disciplines – calcareous, agglutinated, siliceous, organic-walled, protozoan and metazoan alike. Attendees of past meetings have said that the “open” problem solving theme of the conference and the broad participation of specialists from varied disciplines creates a rich environment for collaboration, and the sharing of ideas and knowledge.

The Microfossils IV Technical Committee has selected technical session themes that are intended to reflect today’s broadening application of micropaleontology with the hopes of attracting a diverse spectrum of oral and poster presentations. The nine technical session themes for Microfossils IV are:
