First International Congress on Continental Ichnology
[ICCI-2015]

Organizers and objectives
The Laboratory of Geodynamic and Variscan Geosciences (Department of Geology, Faculty of Sciences, Chouaïb Doukkali University) of El Jadida has the most important collection of Late Palaeozoic-Early Mesozoic continental trace fossils in North Africa. More than six hundred unique specimens of Westphalian to Late Triassic age were collected in Moroccan continental deposits during the last years. This is an ideal frame for such a meeting and the resultsmay significantly contribute to the understanding of the evolution of fossil ecosystems during an important part of life's history including the origin and early diversification of amniotes, the rise of archosaurs and dinosaurs, as well as the most severe mass extinction at the Permian-Triassic boundary. In this context, the Ichnological Association of Morocco and Laboratory of Geodynamic and Variscan Geosciences, in collaboration with the Urweltmuseum GEOSKOP (Thallichtenberg, Germany) and the Institute of Geology (TU Bergakademie Freiberg, Germany), the SAURIERWELT Paläontologisches Museum (Neumarkt, Germany) with the assistance of the International Commission on Stratigraphy, “Subcommission on Permian Stratigraphy”, will organize the “First International Congress on Continental Ichnology” [ICCI]. The [ICCI] will be devoted to ichnology and biostratigraphy from a global perspective and originates from activities in the "Non-Marine - Marine Correlation Working Group". It will be also a major meeting of ichnologists and palaeontologists. The congress will focus on ichnology and ichnotaxonomy of continental vertebrate and invertebrate ichnofossils. The main objective of the congress is to discuss current problems and future perspectives of ichnotaxonomy of vertebrate and invertebrate ichnofossils from continental deposits as well as biostratigraphic and paleobiogeographic aspects of trace fossils and their potential producers.

Topics
1. Vertebrate and invertebrate ichnology of continental deposits
a) Palaeobiology and ichnotaxonomy of trace fossils.
b) Taphonomy of trace fossils and microbially induced sedimentary structures.
b) Trace fossils in palaeoenvironmental, paleobiogeographical and biostratigraphical analyses.
c) Trackmaker reconstruction and the evolutionary contributions of invertebrate and vertebrate ichnology.

2. Methods, applications, conservation
a) Ichnology of ecosystem engineers in the geologic record.
b) Photogrammetry and 3D modelling in ichnology.
c) Palaeoichnological heritage : Geoconservation and valorisation.
