iDigBio supports workshops, symposia, and other events to achieve its goals and objectives ("workshops" is a term used to refer to any/all of these types of events). Workshops are distinct events that produce clear deliverables, address clear objectives, incur project expenses, and/or significantly utilize project resources. A planning committee, often consisting of members of an iDigBio Working Group, coordinates, organizes, plans, and executes the workshop plan and ensures follow-through to achieve the outcomes and action items.
A workshop proposal is required for any workshop, symposia, or event that will incur any project expense or significantly utilize project resources. Please review the Workshop Request Process document before submitting your proposal using the webform below.
Workshop proposals are accepted throughout the year, but already approved events take precedence and will limit funding and scheduling availability for new events. Workshop proposals are reviewed by the iDigBio Steering Committee at the monthly Steering Committee Meetings.
