The 4th Eastern African Quaternary Research Association (EAQUA) conference in Kenya initially scheduled for February has been moved to 23rd to 27th July 2013. This is to allow our members and other interested participants to take part in the PAGES Congress in Goa, India. We will therefore be holding a back-to-back meeting with East African Association for Palaeontology and Palaeoanthropology (EAAPP).
