Symposium Time: 8:30am - 5:00pm Berlin time (CEST), but: 2:30AM - 11:00AM Florida time (EDT)! So aren't you glad we're recording?! Symposium date: Thursday 23 June 2016.
We, the symposium conveners Elspeth Haston (RBGE), Elizabeth Ellwood (iDigBio), and Deborah Paul (iDigBio) were thrilled (gulp!) when an originally-proposed half-day symposium turned into a full-day symposium at SPNHC 2014. The topic? - Progress in the Digitisation of Natural History Collections.

Chicago’s Field Museum of Natural History (FMNH) turned out to be the perfect venue for iDigBio’s April 23–25 Dried Insect Digitization workshop. Overlooking Grant Park and the Chicago lakefront, FMNH provided an exceptionally attractive and hospitable environment with outstanding amenities. About 50 entomologists and digitization professionals from the U.S., Australia, and the United Kingdom attended, bringing together a diverse assemblage of knowledge and skill to address the complex job of digitizing pinned insect collections.
