Re: Planet of the New Papers

For those of us who can handle reading the occasional paper
(or---gasp!---listening to a talk) in another language, and who
believe that our international colleagues' scientific efforts amount
to more than a mere "waste of paper",  the fourth conference in this
series will be held this September 13-15, with a volume to follow at
some point:

IV Jornadas Internacionales sobre Paleontología de Dinosaurios y su entorno:

Among the goals of this conference are to raise awareness of dinosaur
research in Spain and to promote the campaign to have the dinosaur
tracks of the Iberian Peninsula declared a World Heritage Site.

The publications that result from this series of conferences are
compiled into an irregularly-published in-house journal that seeks to
raise national and international awareness of local dinosaur research.
It makes complete sense that some parts of it be published in the
local language, Spanish. That they allow international researchers to
publish in their native languages is a bonus to us, not a fault on
their part.

FYI, this series publishes papers in Spanish, English, and French, and
the first two volumes can be ordered online for about 17 Euros apiece
