58th Irish Geological Research Meeting 2015

IGRM 2015

Ulster Museum, Belfast

The 58th Irish Geological Research Meeting will be held in the Ulster Museum, Belfast, over the weekend of 20-22 February 2015. Registration, as always, is free.

On Friday evening Tori Herridge, dwarf elephant expert and well-known mammoth dissector, will deliver a lecture on "How to make a Dwarf Mammoth" in the Kier Building of QUB.

On Saturday evening Val Troll will be speaking about recent work on the British and Irish Palaeogene Igneous Province.

General sessions over the two days will finish by 3.30 on Sunday in time to catch the 4p.m. train to Dublin and beyond.

If you wish to present a talk or poster, then send an abstract by 23 January, specifying talk or poster. Abstracts should be in the style of the template below, preferably with the main body of the abstract no more than 200 words.

As always, talks and posters should have an Irish connection, i.e. on a topic relevant to Ireland or carried out within an Irish organisation. Speakers will be allocated 15 minutes maximum. If there are too many talks offered, then preference will be given to new speakers and/or significantly new research.

Posters should be standard A1 size (59 x 84cm) and ideally portrait format, but we will endeavour to accommodate exceptions.
