Having begun my recovery (and finished my taxes) from the fantastic meeting at the Burke Museum that wrapped up on Sunday, I'd like to say a huge thanks to Christian Sidor, Bruce Crowley, and especially Jessica Cima for hosting and organizing this terrific event. Thanks are due also to the wonderful slate of speakers who presented on a wide variety of topics. Vendors and field trip hosts opened our eyes to some new technologies and methods for caring for fossils, the weather was perfect, and the venue was well suited to our crowd. This was another meeting filled with international colleagues, new ideas, and fantastic conversation.
The venue for the 2013 is still being worked out, but it will be cohosted as the Annual Meeting of the Association for Methods and Materials in Paleontology. More on this will follow as information becomes available!
