The schedule of this year's Fossil Preparation and Collections Symposium can be downloaded from the new FPCS website (work in progress) hosted at FossilPrep.org. There are a bunch of great talks, workshops, field trips, and more slated for this meeting, I'm really looking forward to seeing everyone next week!
Don't forget to bring something to the Burke for the live auction Friday night! Last year's auction raised over $2500 in seed money for 2012. Thanks again to Arvid Aase for doing such an amazing job... anyone think we can we top it this year?
Looks like the UW host committee [Jessica Cima, Bruce Crowley, and Christian Sidor] have done a fantastic job putting this show together.
Why do we manage academia so badly?
