Thank You

The combined WCGALP / ICAR / Interbull meetings held in Auckland, New Zealand, 7-16 February 2018, have now concluded.  

The Local Organising Committees thank everyone who attended the three meetings either individually or in combination for their support.  Our thanks also go to those who helped make the meeting happen including Sponsors, Exhibitors, Chairs / Moderators, paper reviewers and Field Trip Champions.  

A special thank you to Rachel and her team from Conference Innovators for dealing with all the enquiries and the inevitable hiccups that happen with events of this size.

A total of 1423 delegates attended the meetings from 70 countries.  873 papers were presented at the joint WCGALP/ICAR meeting, 114 papers at ICAR and Interbull meetings, along with 20 Interbull and ICAR Business sessions.

Papers from the joint WCGALP/ICAR meeting will soon appear at the WCGALP archive website  We know there are some errors in author names, some files are corrupted and papers may be missing.  These errors will be reduced if you report any problems to the Webmaster; a link is at the bottom of each page.

We congratulate The Netherlands on their successful bid for the 2022 WCGALP and look forward to seeing many of you in Rotterdam.
