Registration and Fees

The 1º Simposio de Paleontología del Noroeste Peninsular will be totally free. However, the participants should register in order to know the total number of attendees, particularly important in the case that any sanitary restriction imposed by autonomic, national, or international regulations, restricts room capacities. It will also be possible to increase the capacity of the rooms using mirror classrooms. Attendees will be assigned following their registration order in case of restrictions.
