Paleonturology 12 award



Good morning everyone!
In case any of you are interested in submitting any of your last
papers to this award, I share the requirements. For more information,
visit www.fundaciondinopolis.org or facebook.com/fundacion.dinopolis
Cheers!

-----------------------------------------------------------

Fundación Conjunto Paleontológico de Teruel-Dinópolis (from now on
FCPTD), Fundación Teruel Siglo XXI and Dinópolis, with the purpose of
rewarding palaeontological research and promoting it among teenagers,
declare open the Tenth International Award in Palaeontological
Research (Paleonturology 12) based on the following

Requirements:

1st.- Any palaeontological research paper published in 2011 in any
language and format can apply for the award. That is, the papers
either published in 2011 or if the work is still in press in the
moment of applying to the award, it must be justified that the year
appearing on the on the first page of the paper must be 2011. If a
work was published electronically during 2011 and was later printed
with a date of 2012, the paper in electronic format could be presented
to the award session Paleonturology 12 or the printed version could be
presented to Paleonturology 13 (the author should select only one of
these options).

2nd.- The papers can be entered by:
A) Their author/s. Supposing it is signed by several authors, one of
them, preferably the first author, will certify that all the others
accept to be represented by him to all intents and purposes before the
organisation. In case there is more than one author, we understand by
author the first person signing it or the one who can prove being the
representative of the others.
B)   Any other person or organisation.

3rd.- It is compulsory to present a printed copy or a PDF file and a
registration form with the data required in Annex I. The author will
ensure that the copy -or the file- and the Annex I are in the hands of
the organisers before November 15, 2012. This is the address where
these files/forms should be sent:

Fundación Conjunto Paleontológico de Teruel-Dinópolis
Avda. Sagunto s/n. E-44002 Teruel (Spain). e-mail: fundacion@dinopolis.com
Tel.: +34 978 61 76 30, Fax: +34 978 61 76 38

            4th.- The jury will be made up of three outstanding
researchers (appointed by the organisers) and by the Director of the
FCPTD, acting as a Secretary, but without a right to vote. Its
constitution will be known at the same time as their decision.

5th.- The jury will act with complete freedom and, in addition to
their normal powers -to propose and make a decision, awarding or
declaring the award void-, will interpret the present Requirements.
The decision of the jury will be final.

6th.- The decision of the jury will be announced in Teruel before the
end of the year 2012. It will also be advertised on the media. All the
participants requesting a certificate of the decision will be sent a
copy.

7th.- The Tenth International Award in Palaeontological Research
Paleonturology 12 is endowed with a Four Thousand Five Hundred Euros
(4.500 €) prize –indivisible and subject to the current fiscal
legislation- and, prior to its acceptance, the author will be
committed to writing a version to popularise the awarded paper paying
special attention to additional graphics that may be required. It has
to be sent to the organisation within a period of four months from the
notification of the award and to relinquish the publication rights to
the organisation. The organisation will use it to publish a popular
version (it will be translated, if necessary), and will collaborate
with the author to reach the required didactic level (students between
15 and 17 years of age). The mentioned right has to be exercised
within a year from the date of the decision.
The amount of the award will be paid in its 50% within a period of two
months from the notification of the award and the remaining 50% when
the popular version is handed in.

8th.- A previous jury, composed by experts in palaeontology, will
select the number of papers they estimate relevant, in any case not
less than ten. If a shortlisted paper has not been entered by its
author, the organisation will propose to him the acceptance of the
commitments established in the 7th requirement. In that case he will
compete for the award; otherwise, or in the event of not replying
within ten days, he will be withdrawn from the final deliberation.

9th.- The organisers of this award are neither committed to attend the
mail nor to provide information on the titles selected by the previous
jury. These titles will be entered in the record of the meeting of the
jury.

10th.- Entering papers for this award implies the acceptance of these
Requirements by the author.
