WeDigBio's Why Dig Bio symposium.

Three thought leaders reflect on major motivations to create digital information about biodiversity at international, national, and personal scales.  What drives the creation and sharing of digital data about the three billion insects on pins, fish in jars, fossils in drawers, plants on sheets, and other specimen types curated by the world's museums, universities, government labs, botanical gardens, zoos, and elsewhere? 

Joe Miller (Global Biodiversity Information Facility) will speak on "Linking Community Science to Global Biodiversity Policy"

Ciaran Mathewson (DigiVol) will speak on "Digitisation Down-Under! How Crowdsourcing Supports our Biodiverse Australian Collections"

Siobhan Leachman (Independent Researcher) will speak on "Virtual Voyaging for Science"
