Thank for the ther posting.
So, here it is…
Mesa Southwest Museum and the Southwest Paleontological Society, 53 N. Macdonald Street, Mesa, Arizona, are your hosts for the 2001 WAVP meeting. The symposium will be held at the Rendezvous Center at 263 N. Center Street. Our new natural history hall is open, which has doubled the size of the museum. Come see us and make this the best WAVP ever!
The Southwest Paleontological Symposium has been an annual affair at our museum. In 2000 this symposium attracted about 80 participants and 20 presentations. For 2001 this symposium will be held jointly with WAVP. Invertebrate and paleobotanical papers are still welcome, and will be held as separate sessions if enough interest is present.
Title, abstract, or paper? In keeping with the informal nature of WAVP, we will accept any paper upon providing us with a title, including non-vertebrate talks (or presentations?). Our Southwest Paleontological Symposium traditionally publishes a museum bulletin with short papers and abstracts of talks. Several papers have already been submitted, so we intend to continue this tradition. Abstracts will be available at the symposium, and are included in the price of the symposium. The symposium volume will be available within a year at a nominal charge. Deadline and submission guidelines are found below:
