Here we present you the second circular of the 2014 Ediacaran-Cryogenian Field Workshop and Symposium (June 11-22) in South China (download at http://english.nigpas.cas.cn/ns/es/200907/P020140305400930814792.pdf), as well as an abstract template.
There are several recent papers published in 2014 that are relevant to the field trip. We will have an opportunity to examine some of these fossils during the field workshop.
