Paleont. Calendar #1 (part 1)(July 1, '95) [LONG]



Paleontology Calendar

        Comments on the Net during the past few months have shown a clear 
need for a central calendar of events in paleontology. What qualifies for 
inclusion in this calendar? My belief is that if the event is associated 
with fossils in any way and can be assigned a date, then it is a suitable 
candidate for this calendar. In this first edition of the calendar, I 
have included expositions, museum exhibit openings, meetings, digs, 
shows, committee meetings, technical symposia, and even one parade. This 
eclectic mixture will probably aggravate a lot of people; however, I hope 
that future editions will have even more variety, including calls for papers 
and deadlines.
        This first edition has events from February 1995 through June 1995 
that were left in because the information was available and easily 
included. I realize that these events have passed; however, they should 
be of interest to some people who see this list (guidebooks are still 
available, etc.). This first edition is long (several hundred lines). 
Succeeding lists will be even longer.
        Every entry is complete. When commercial operators run the same 
trip repeatedly, there is a lot of repetition throughout the list; 
however, repeating these entries makes the compilation of the list easier 
on me. Many of the entries have limited details about the event. If you 
want more detail, let me know and I'll include it in future lists, but 
the length of the calendar will increase substantially.
        As you use the calendar, exercise caution. Meeting dates change, 
content changes, events are canceled, and there are often unforeseen 
expenses. Assume that participation in an event is not without cost 
unless I explicitly state that the event is free. Also assume that full 
participation in most association and society events requires membership 
in those organizations. Please realize that this calendar is my best 
effort, but I cannot and should be held responsible for changes I don't 
know about. If you spot an error, please let me know immediately, and 
I'll post a correction immediately.
        Suggestions for improvement are always welcome. Please contact me 
directly. This calendar is not copyrighted and may be copied freely; however, I 
ask that you credit the source if you use this material, because that will make 
more people aware of the calendar and increase the number of entries.

********************************************************
        I NEED HELP! Most of the entries in this first list are for North 
America. Many organizations are unrepresented. My goal is representation 
for all relevant groups from all continents. Please send me event 
information if you know of an event that is not listed. For each event, I 
need the date(s), place, name of the event if it has one (otherwise, 
describe the event), the theme if there is one, brief description, titles 
of relevant symposia or sessions at major meetings, sponsor(s), and 
contact name and fax number or email address. Please let me know if you 
do not want your name included in the entry.
        If you don't have detailed information for an event but can send me 
a contact name, please do so and I'll request the information.
********************************************************

        Where are the best places to post this list? I'm sending the 
announcement of this list and the first calendar to the Dinosaurs, 
PaleoNet, Rockhounds, Rocks and Fossils, and Vertebrate Paleontology 
discussion lists. I will also be posting them to the sci.geo.geology 
Usenet group; however, I don't have access (yet) to sci.bio.paleontology. 
        Many people read many or most of these lists, and I don't want to 
burden anyone with needless repetition. Please let me know what you 
think.
