Biogeology Seminars & Journal Club

Biogeology seminar SS 2023

Tübingen Biogeology Seminars serves as an informal forum for academics, students and all those interested in fossils and the geological past. We meet regularly on Thursday at 14:15 with length depending on discussion time.
It is our pleasure to organize the ‘Biogeology Seminar’ this winter semester. In this seminar we want to give you the opportunity to present an overlook of your projects, papers relevant to your topics, your recently published papers, conference presentations, and generally any kind of ongoing or completed research to stimulate exchange between students, post-docs and professors. 
If you want to present something, please feel free to contact us for scheduling your talks (preferably giving us also a title). We do not want to favor any specific format (such as powerpoint, pdf, images) or a duration but would like to keep it as open and flexible as possible. So just use your creativity to share your research with us :)

New hybrid format

Different from previous times, the Biogeology Seminar will take place in a hybrid format this winter semester, taking place at the seminar room 229 in the Institute of Geosciences, but also available for zoom attendances/presentations. 
However, it is worth mentioning that the in-person format of the Seminar depends on the current Corona situation and potential new rules from the University. So, modifications on the format are possible. We will let you know in advance when we have new information. 

Please feel free to contact us for scheduling your talk,
