2nd Workshop on Actualistic Taphonomy

Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil

19-21 July – Online

Centro de Estudos Costeiros, Limnológicos e Marinhos, CECLIMAR, UFRGS Litoral Norte

The 2nd TAAS was a successful event that achieved more than 60 participants, 35 works were presented, and several ideas have been pointed out for the near future. Despite the challenges of an online event, the discussions and ideas have been spread out over those marvelous three days. 

Thanks to all! See you all in 2024 in Mar del Plata in the 3rd TAAS!

As announced during the First Workshop held in Montevideo (TAAS 2017; Figure below), we are organizing the second Workshop on Actualistic Taphonomy in South America. The idea of a small meeting (as a workshop stricto sensu) is to be continued, given the highly successful results of the first event.

Covid-19 has been forcing institutional decisions that are affecting directly any type of people gathering and agglomerations.

In this sense, we decided to postpone our 2nd TAAS to 2021.

Until now, more than 25 abstracts have been submitted and most of them already revised and approved. 

We ask all authors to contact the event to inform us if you will keep the submission or will make a new one (See here how to submit an abstract to the 2nd TAAS).

The event is supported by the Centro de Estudos Costeiros, Limnológicos e Marinhos (CECLIMAR), Imbé, north coast of Rio Grande do Sul State, Brasil (see more below).
