Ichnia 2008

Second international conference on Ichnology held at the Jagiellonian University, Cracow, Poland (September 1-5, 2008). A very enjoyable meeting of a very benign research community.

Highlight for me: I met Dolf Seilacher. His contributions from the late 50's and early 60's, in fact, mark the beginning of modern Ichnology.

The winning team of the football game: Eastern vs. Western Hemisphere. Actually, it was somebody vs. somebody else or all vs. the rain. These were the only two hours of the whole meeting where it poured like hell. West:5 - East:1 or Ichnia:6 - Rain:0
