The Institute of Geology and Palaeontology organises a number of seminars, workshops, short courses, and international conferences. The main goal of our seminars is to promote the exchange of ideas and to discuss the latest and most exciting developments in Earth Sciences. The Institute´s "flagship" in this respect are the interlinked Sedimentary Geology and Paleontological Seminars, to which we invite speakers from foreign universities and research institutions. Seminars are held regularly on Wednesdays from 2:50 pm in the Palaeontology Lecture Hall, Albertov 6, Prague 2.
