Ichnia 2016 is the Fourth International Congress on Ichnology
The Ichnia 2016 meeting will be the 4th International congress on Ichnology. This congress, under the general theme ‘Ichnology for the 21st century: (Palaeo)Biological Traces towards Sustainable Development’ will aspire for a discussion upon traces (fossils) as biological behavior patterns preserved in sediments and rocks. Trace fossils recall the response of organisms to environmental physical and chemical dynamic parameters, as well as the interaction with other members of the same population or community as part of the (palaeo)ecosystem where they belong to.
Traces, % 90
Ichnological Tourism, % 75
Palaeoenvironmental Reconstitution, % 80
Biological Behaviour, % 85

Field trips are designed with great care to give the best look about the trace fossil record from Portugal and surrounding Spain, and at the same time a close contact with Portuguese culture and landscapes. All the most important ichnological sites will be covered by the pre-congress (3-5 May), intra-congress (8 May) and post-congress (10-13 May) field trips, from North to South of Portugal including border regions of Spain.
The congress kit is a set of printable useful information (circulars) about the field trips and the congress.

The IIA has established three Scholarships, The Jordi M. de Gibert Atienza, the Dolf Seilacher and the George Pemberton Scholarships. These different grants focus on supporting the development of multifaceted venues in ichnological research.
The place [Penha Garcia] is in Portugal and well worth visiting
A splendid trail (3 km, 1 hr) climbs up to the skeletal castle and then down into a rather magical gorge below a dam wall, where fossils of the furrows of giant trilobites have been found
[...] an allied burrowing genus [of barnacle] has been found on the shores of Portugal
