Let us stand together for Europe and a world in peace. We as scientists have a political mandate, and we should be ready to act. All those who are not willing to accept this are free to leave.”

    We would like to encourage other associations of the scientific community to join in with a similarly clear statement.

  • EAVP 2020 postponed to 2021

    Dear friends and colleagues,

    It’s with great sorrow that we announce that the 2020 EAVP meeting in Benevento is postponed to summer 2021. As you may have noticed we have delayed the registration, hoping to avoid such drastic measure, but this unprecedented pandemic situation and the unpredictable developments, especially in terms of quarantine and travel restrictions, forces us, in agreement with the EAVP board, to postpone the meeting to the next year.

    Benevento is happy to welcome you all for the 2021 conference, where we’ll hopefully have a lot of time to share our knowledge and socialize!

    Stay safe, healthy and palaeo

    Best regards

    The Organizing Committee
