July 2-5, 2015 Bonn, Germany
Thanks to everyone for making ISPH 2015 a success!
It is our pleasure to invite you to the 3rd International Symposium on Paleohistology to be held at the University of Bonn in Bonn, Germany, from July 2nd to July 5th, 2015. The University of Bonn has a rich history in paleontological and evolutionary research, making it a befitting venue.
Our region, the Rhineland, is very open to the world and easily embraces new experiences. Once an event has taken place twice, it is already considered a “tradition”. It is in this spirit that we invite you to participate in another successful International Symposium on Paleohistology, ISPH 3.

About the Logo
Logo design by Jasmina Wiemann
The logo highlights several aspects well suited for the Bonn, 2015 meeting. The dwarf sauropod dinosaur, Europasaurus, stands in front of a histology-filled silhouette of the main dome of Poppelsdorf Palace, the main venue for ISPH 2015. This late Jurassic sauropod is a fitting representative, as it was discovered in Lower Saxony, Germany, and its dwarf status was verified with histological investigations.
