The Society for Phytolith Research holds bi-annual meetings called International Meeting on Phytolith Research (IMPR). These meetings gather a world-wide audience and create the chance for researchers in phytolith studies from different disciplines (archaeology, botany, plant physiology, environmental studies, geology and many more) to get together and focus on phytoliths. The meetings are a great chance to meet people and to discuss phytolith research in multi- and interdisciplinary perspective. The proceedings of the conference are normally published as an edited volume.
