See All Speakers

Welcome to the 16th Conference of Australasian Vertebrate Evolution, Palaeontology and Systematics (CAVEPS)


2 - 6 October 2017, Queenstown, New Zealand

CAVEPS encompasses a broad range of topics relating to the evolution, history and systematics of vertebrates within the Australasian region, including:

• Palaeontology and palaeoecology
• Zooarchaeology
• Extinctions
• Morphology and adaptation
• Ancient DNA and phylogenetics
• Evolutionary developmental biology
• Taphonomy
• New advances in analytical techniques

This will be the first time since 2001 that CAVEPS has been held in New Zealand, and so is a wonderful opportunity for locals who might be interested in attending for the first time. We also warmly welcome new and returning attendees travelling from Australia and further afield. Getting here is easy - with daily direct flights to Queenstown now operating out of Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane. For overseas delegates wishing to spend some extra time around the conference making the most of the amazing scenery and adventure that this region has to offer, see this page, or just let us know. We’d be happy to provide you with some local advice and pointers.

We hope to see you at CAVEPS!
