Organizing Committee

During the XXV Brazilian Congress of Paleontology, held July 17-21, 2017 on campus of the Faculty of Philosophy, Sciences and Letters of Ribeirão Preto, University of São Paulo, the board of the Brazilian Society of Paleontology sought the team of the Paleontology Laboratory of the Institute of Biology of the Federal University of Uberlândia, which was present there. with papers presentation, and sent a request for the next event, in 2019, to be held in Uberlândia. This apparently unusual situation, given that Congress venues have traditionally been decided after consideration of proposals previously submitted and voted in Assembly, was justified by the good track record of organizing regional events presented by the aforementioned Laboratory staff, such as the IX and XIII Regional Meeting of the Brazilian Society of Paleontology in Minas Gerais - PALEO MINAS, held in December 2010 and 2016, respectively, in addition to the cohesion of its student team, collaborators and teacher. Accepting the challenge, the coordinator of the INBIO / UFU Paleontology Laboratory committed to the event before the Assembly of the XXV Brazilian Paleontology Congress, which was endorsed by the attendees.

This was followed by the articulation of a network of collaborators that culminated in the Organizing Committee and the Support Committee listed below. The principles that structured the composition of these committees were: 1) Adherence to the objectives of the Brazilian Congress of Paleontology; 2) Enthusiasm at the challenge of organizing the most important meeting of the area in the country; 3) Previous experience in organizing academic events; 4) Professional and / or emotional ties with the host region of the 26th edition; 5) Willingness to engage in teaching, research and extension activities; 6) Initiative, dynamism and leadership in the performance of group tasks; 7) Capacity of planning; 8) Ability to deal with adversity.
