The Northeast-Midcontinent Paleobotanical Colloquium (NMPC) is typically held in the spring, and is hosted by a different institution each year. This meeting emphasizes student participation in a relaxed and relatively informal setting. Although the format varies somewhat from year-to-year, there generally are social receptions, oral and poster presentations, banquets, workshops, field trips, slide exchanges, and lots of personal interactions.
This year's 33rd conference was held on May 13-15, 2016 at
