Workshop launches international coalition for geoinformatics



A global forum on sedimentary geology and paleobiology was launched at an inaugural meeting at the 32nd International Geological Congress, in Florence, Italy. The workshop developed a collaborative international effort that focuses on next-generation research and education and that provides a forum for individuals and organizations involved in conducting and sponsoring this research.

Thirty-five scientists and 20 representatives of European funding organizations met in the first of a planned series of workshops on “Coordinating GeoInformatics Efforts in Sedimentary Geology and Paleobiology.”
