Third European Workshop on Vertebrate Palaeontology



Third European Workshop on Vertebrate Palaeontology

Maastricht, 6-9 May 1998

First circular

Dear colleagues,

        For those of you who attended last year's meeting at Espéraza-
Quillan, this will sound familiar: from May 6 to 9, 1998, the
Natuurhistorisch Museum Maastricht will be the venue of the Third European
Workshop on Vertebrate Palaeontology.
        With the type locality of the Maastrichtian Stage (71.3- 65.4 Ma)
and the recently discovered K/T boundary section of Geulhemmerberg nearby,
the museum is home to the most famous of late Cretaceous marine reptiles,
Mosasaurus hoffmanni Mantell 1829, the species which figured so prominently
in pre- Darwinian days. In fact, it does not seem too presumptuous to claim
that Maastricht is one of the places where vertebrate palaeontology originated.
        With this first circular, we wish to invite you all to Maastricht.
Please return the attached registration form as soon as possible so as to
give us an idea of how many of you would like to attend. The second circular
will be sent (January 1998) only to those who have responded to the first,
and will include details on payment of registration fees and on how best to
get to Maastricht by train, car or plane, as well as a provisional programme
of talks and posters.
        In view of the fact that Maastricht is a 'bustling' city in the
month of May, we now include also a selection of hotels, most of which are
to be found in the city centre (Hfl = Dutch guilder), i.e. at walking
distance from the museum. This may help you choose hotel accommodation well
in advance. For hotels in the direct vicinity of Maastricht you may contact
Tourist Information at the following address:

VVV Maastricht
Het Dinghuis/Kleine Staat 1
NL-6211 ED Maastricht
phone (31) 43 - 325 2121
fax (31) 43 - 321 3746

We look forward to welcoming you to Maastricht next year !

The organising committee,
