The Annual Conference

The rapid mobilization of digitized biodiversity specimen data, led largely in the United States by the National Science Foundation’s Advancing Digitization of Biodiversity Collections (ADBC) program, has resulted in a substantial increase in data available for research and related activities. To this end, the Inagural Digital Data in Biodiversity Research conference was launched in 2017 in collaboration with the University of Michigan Museum of Zoology, the Universiy of Miochigan Museum of Paleontology, and the University of Michigan Herbarium and has evolved into a forum for biodiversity researchers to share and examine the uses of digitized data across all biodiversity disciplines, with special emphasis on using the wealth of digitized specimen data being generated worldwide. Next year's conference, to be hosted at Yale Peabody Museum, will be the third in this rapidly developing series and will highlight methods, protocols, and analytical tools for big data research in the biodiversity sciences.
