11 th INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON MODERN AND FOSSIL DINOFLAGELLATES 
Six sessions are planned equally for Modern dinoflagellate and Fossil dinoflagellate themes (see below).  
Sessions will be led by scientific committee teams gathering members from the local organization, French partners and international specialists.  
 
Additional workshops will be organized in parallel to the meeting: any proposals are welcome (send an e-mail to
