Scientific Discussion meeting organised by Professor Rachel Wood, Professor Philip Donoghue, Professor Simon Poulton, Professor Tim Lenton and Dr Alex Liu
Understanding of the triggers and timing of the rise of complex life ~720-520 million years ago has expanded dramatically in recent years. This meeting will integrate diverse and novel geochemical and palaeontological data to create testable hypotheses for the differing roles of changing climate, oceanic redox, nutrient availability, and ecosystem feedbacks, across this profound, but enigmatic, transitional period.
More information on the programme and speakers will be available soon. Speaker abstracts will be available closer to the meeting. Recorded audio of the presentations will be available on this page after the meeting has taken place.
There will be a poster session at 17:00 on Monday 9 September. If you would like to apply to present a poster please submit your proposed title, abstract (not more than 200 words and in third person), author list, name of the proposed presenter and institution to the Scientific Programmes team with the subject heading "Complex Life: poster abstract" no later than Friday 5 July 2019.
Please note that places are limited and posters are selected at the scientific organisers' discretion. Poster abstracts will only be considered if the presenter is registered to attend the meeting.
