The International Conference/Congress on Fossil Insects, Arthropods and Amber (abbreviated to Fossils x3) is the main conference for the scientific study of non-marine arthropods and amber and is usually held every three years. During the 7th International Congress, held in Edinburgh, Scottland in 2016, a vote took place to decide on the venue of the next conference and Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic was chosen.
Santo Domingo Colonial City recognized by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. The Colonial City is a very walkable grid of 16 short streets with jewels of 16th to early 20th century architecture. Cobblestone lanes and iron street lamps lead to the many small museums, shops, hotels, restaurants and bars that are tucked away on every street. In the city, marvel at the lushness of the Botanical Gardens. Walk over to the Malecón and watch the people and the sea views.
Las Americas International Airport (SDQ) and Punta Cana International Airport (PUJ) are the most popular ports of entry, half an hour, and two hours and half east of the city.
The Organizing Committee has the pleasure of inviting you to attend the 8th International Conference on Fossil Insects, Arthropods and Amber in the colonial city of Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, from April 8th to 12th of 2019. There are additional optional field trips on April 13th and 14th .
