This session at GSA 2016 will focus on paleontology/geo databases, data standards related to paleontology, and mobilization of research-quality paleontology data to iDigBio and other aggregators. These topics have sparked considerable interest amongst the iDigBio Paleontology Digitization Working Group and are a natural extension of existing digitization programs.
The 2013 Biodiversity Information Standards (TDWG) Annual Conference is October 27 - November 1, 2013 at the Grand Hotel Mediterraneo, Florence, Italy. The conference theme is "Virtual Communities for Biodiversity Science."
iDigBio Informatics and Cyberinfrastructure Workshop
Building 105, University of Florida
(Noon, Wed. 28 March – 5pm, Fri. 30 March)
A focused workshop sponsored by iDigBio will be conducted to discuss, define, and distill the standards and cyberinfrastructure requirements for the scientific collections and biodiversity sciences. An operational assumption is that the biodiversity informatics community has already made significant effort and headway in certain tools, practices, and standards, and what’s now crucial is to identify critical gaps in the infrastructure and training that can be a further focus of community activities.
