While it is being set up for NATHIST members, others may also attend. Therefore, as with all triennial excursions, spaces are likely to fill up. It is essential that you register early.

    Can you please tell me what the registration costs are for the 2017 conference and what hotel is being recommended for the conference and their hotel rates?

      Dear Martina, the planning committee is going over this at the moment and we will post this shortly. Stay tuned for a stand-alone micro-site from Carnegie Museum of Natural History.
