The international conference on modern and fossil dinoflagellates is a longstanding conference series which began in 1978
in Colorado Springs, Colorado
with a Penrose Conference organised by Bill Evitt. The overarching aim of the series is to bring together researchers working on present day dinoflagellates with those working on dinoflagellates in the fossil record to foster interdisciplinary understanding and collaboration. Over the years the conference has attracted dinoflagellate workers from across the world who have come together to deepen their understanding of this fascinating group of organisms and gone away with new perspectives and new research avenues to explore. It is in this spirit we offer the 9th conference in the series and cordially invite you to Liverpool to participate in the dynamic social spirit of the city alongside a stimulating intellectual endeavor.
