The Isle of Wight (Dinosaur Island) and China are key areas for Cretaceous fossils, especially dinosaurs. Join us in September 2013 to celebrate this connection at a two day conference hosted by the University of Southampton.

Chinese and UK dinosaur palaeontologists will discuss their research at the National Oceanography Centre, Southampton. Visit key dinosaur sites on the Isle of Wight and network with tourism and business leaders. Build connections for future palaentological research.
