Day Three - Workshops & Collection Tours
Breakfast (On your own) 8:00 - 9:00 a.m.
Morning Coffee 8:30 - 9:00 a.m.
Workshop 1- R and the iDigBio API
Facilitators:Erica Krimmel, iDigBio, Florida State University and Ronald Canepa, ACIS Lab, University of Florida
Location & Time: 9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.

This workshop will focus on using the iDigBio API (Application Programming Interface) to work with biodiversity occurrence data in R. Topics will be determined unconference-style by workshop attendees, but could include those related to collections management, e.g. reviewing specimen data quality issues, and to downstream research, e.g. facilitating reproducible and reusable methods. Community members of all backgrounds (collections staff, researchers, IT, etc.) and levels of programming experience (including R novice!) are encouraged to attend this workshop as a way to discover and discuss API data access, issues, and solutions. This workshop is a product of the iDigBio API User Group (R-based).
Workshop 2 - Web Repositories
Facilitators:David Blackburn, Florida Museum of Natural History and Doug Boyer, Duke University
Location & Time: 8:30 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
Workshop 3 - Unconference: Biodiversity Science from Perspectives in Other Disciplines
Facilitators:Deb Paul, iDigBio, Florida State University; Kimberly Cook and Gary Motz, Indiana University
Location & Time: 1:00 - 3:00 p.m.

Biodiversity Information Science (BIS) is an inherently multidisciplinary science that is supported by a wealth of perspectives and expertise in diverse fields such as data science, information and library science, computer science, and many others. This unconference session is intended to explore mechanisms by which we can increase and enhance the diversity of people working to advance biodiversity information science in ways that were NOT addressed in the formal program of the Digital Data conference. Unconferences are intentionally unstructured meetings where YOU, the participants (including and especially students), tell the organizers what is important to you and should be better represented in future programming and opportunities for practitioners in our field.
To register for any of the following collection tours, please contact Jess Miller-Camp at jessmc@iu.edu. You must register for the conference before registering for a collection tour.
Collection Tour 1 - Zooarchaeology
Limit 20 people: Must register to attend
Collection Tour 2 - Paleontology (or go on a virtual tour!)
Limit 20 people: Must register to attend
