Portuguese dino meeting

For European dinosaur fans, and those who will be in the Iberian Peninsula
at the end of the month:

The Museu Nacional de Historia Natural da Univesidade de Lisboa will be
hosting the 1rst International Meeting on Dinosaur Paleobiology/Museology
Programme for the Portuguese Dinosaur Tracksites on May 26-May 28.  Don't
know the price and so on, but it will feature programming in English &
Portuguese, with simultaneous translations into the other language (I'm
interested in seeing the interpreter keeping up with me...)

The target audience is the intersted layman and educators.  The meeting
