Despite running concurrent to the best student presentations (Romer Prize), the Preparators and Bird/Dinosaur sessions, the Triassic symposium managed to draw large crowds for each talk. In fact I heard we had better crowds than the bird/dinosaur talks. This would have simply been unheard of six or more years ago and is a testament to all the great research going on in Triassic paleontology right now.
I am no longer in Bristol, and instead am sitting in a pub in central London downing a pint of bitter and watching football (soccer) on the telly. This years SVP meeting was excellent and held in a great place with 1100 great colleagues. Tomorrow Jeff and I are off to the Natural History Museum to look at the holotype of Stagonolepis robertsoni.
