The Peabody Museum at Yale University and iDigBio at the Florida Museum, University of Florida, in association with the Natural Sciences Collections Alliance are delighted to announce that registration is now open for the 2019 Digital Data in Biodiversity Research Conference, this year hosted on the Yale campus, New Haven, CT, 10-12 June. The theme for this year’s event is Methods, Protocols, and Analytical Tools for Specimen-based Research in the Biological Sciences.
The conference planning team is extremely pleased to also collaborate with the Ecological Society of America (ESA) on its popular and successful Sustaining Biological Infrastructure: Strategies for Success course, to be held 12-14 June in conjunction with the conference.
This year’s conference will again offer opportunities to submit abstracts for hosting discussion sessions ranging in length from 30 to 75 minutes, a very popular activity begun last year, as well as abstracts for oral and poster presentations.
New this year will be the opportunity to submit abstracts for half or full-day workshops and symposia to be held on Wednesday the 12th. Although workshops during the previous two conferences were well attended with positive responses, the planning team believes that opening up workshop submission opportunities to a wider range of participants will result in even more relevant topics. Those who want to submit a workshop or symposium abstract will need to register early as workshop/symposia proposals are due by 23 March. Those who want to submit discussion, oral, or poster presentation abstracts must register before the 30 April abstract deadline. You will receive a link to the abstract submission page with your registration confirmation.
Registration is now open and closes 17 May.
