On behalf of the Organizing Committee we cordially invite you to attend the 4th International Palaeontological Congress, to be held in Mendoza, Argentina, from September 28 to October 3, 2014, hosted by the Centro Científico Tecnológico CONICET Mendoza and partner organizations.

The International Palaeontological Congress (IPC) is a global meeting devoted to Palaeontology throughout the world. It takes place every four years under the auspices of the International Palaeontological Association. After three previous editions in Sydney (2002), Beijing (2006) and London (2010), it will now come to the American continent. The 4th IPC will reflect the directions of palaeontology in the 21st century.

The meeting will be held in Mendoza, an attractive and easily accessible city in the mid-west of  Argentina, which offers a wide range of professional and recreational opportunities to participants of all backgrounds. Mendoza is renowned for its location at the foot of the Andes, near the highest peak of the Western Hemisphere, the Aconcagua. The whole province of Mendoza provides many tourist attractions to explore and it is well known for being one of the foremost wine-producing regions in the world.

Local organizers are planning a comprehensive congress with an intellectually stimulating scientific program. The meeting will provide opportunities for participants to present and share experiences, explore new research directions and debate topics among specialists from across the globe. A varied array of meeting styles incorporating a combination of plenary lectures, symposia on leading issues, interactive workshops, technical sessions and short courses, promises to provide sessions of interest for all attendants.

Delegates will have the opportunity to enjoy diverse conference excursions to rich and well-known Argentine palaeontological sites. These field trips will not only include visits to important scientific localities but also to regional tourist attractions. The schedule of field trips covers superbly exposed sedimentary successions representing a great diversity of marine and continental palaeoenvironments and encompasses nearly the whole Phanerozoic stratigraphic record.

We look forward to welcoming you to Mendoza
