YSM and OSM success in Spain

osm17 groupIt has been an intense few months for PAGES IPO and all those involved in the organization of PAGES' 3rd Young Scientists Meeting (YSM) and 5th Open Science Meeting (OSM) in Spain.

We are happy to report both events were a resounding success.


From 7-9 May, 80 international early-career researchers took over the small restored village of Morillo de Tou in the Spanish Pyrenees. They mixed with peers and established scientists, presented their current research via oral or poster presentations, attended workshops and enjoyed stargazing and local music nights before returning to Zaragoza for the OSM.

More than 900 paleoscientists took part in the OSM from 9-13 May, with a diverse and thrilling mix of plenary, oral and poster presentations spread across five rooms within the city's auditorium and a neighboring hotel.

PAGES thanks all participants and everyone involved, especially the meeting supporters, conference host IPE-CSIS, technical secretariat Viajes El Corte Inglés Zaragoza, the local organizing committee, scientific program committee, plenary speakers, session convenors, poster presenters and all those who worked hard behind the scenes to make both events exceptional and memorable.

We encourage those who attended to take the 15-minute PAGES' survey, to provide valuable feedback and tips for future meetings.
