Conference Resources

Conference Registration

Registration will open February 1st. Visit Eventbrite to register: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/6th-annual-digital-data-in-biodiversity-research-conference-tickets-252120779037

Digital Data Conference Registration Fees*:

$100.00 for professionals

$50.00 for students.

Optional registration fees will support the digital format technology, the editing and publication of abstracts, and keeping the conference sustainable.

  • Registration fees are optional but encouraged. When registering, those who wish not to make a financial contribution to the conference will have that option. Although registration is optional, your registration information, even if you opt out of the fee, will allow us to keep you updated about conference activities.

Abstract Submissions

You must register to submit an abstract. The abstract submission link will be sent to you in your registration confirmation email.

Abstract submission deadline: 22 April 2022

The conference will be structured to allow live presentations among different time zones. We are requesting recording of presentations to be posted on this wiki to ensure their availability to any time zone.

Oral Presentations

Each oral presentation will be presented live but pre-recorded presentations are additionally requested. Pre-recorded presentations will be posted on the wiki page as reference but also used as a backup in case of technical difficulties or absence. In the live sessions, an additional 5 minutes will be given for questions.
It is best to open all links to pre-recorded presentations and posters in a new tab. The easiest way to do this is to hold COMMAND (Mac) or Control (Windows) while simultaneously clicking the link. Click here to view last year’s agenda for example presentations

Discussion Sessions

Discussion sessions can be between 30 and 75 minutes. The structure should be determined by the panelists. These may begin with a presentation or introduction followed by discussion or may be completely devoted to open discussion. No prerecording is required.

Zoom Information

  • Make sure you have upgraded your Zoom client.
  • We suggest the desktop client or mobile app, which use less bandwidth than Zoom in your browser. See Zoom help for more: https://bit.ly/2RM0rzQ.
  • Please use the Zoom Q&A feature if you have questions for the presenters. The chat function will only be used for discussion.
  • When joining a session from the wiki, a quick “registration” will let you into the session. Please just “register” for the Zoom webinar sessions that you’re interested in attending.
  • After you submit your information (in an effort to reduce bot/Zoombomber discovery), you’ll be taken directly to the webinar.
  • You will not need to switch “rooms” if you’re hoping to join presentations in the same session (e.g. Concurrent Session 6), but you’ll need to switch to a different Zoom “room” if you want to jump from Concurrent Session 1 over to Concurrent Session 2.

Bioblitz

What biodiversity is in your backyard? How much biodiversity can the Digital Data Community document? We are taking advantage of the fact that we are virtual again this year by asking participants to document biodiversity in their gardens, yards, and neighborhoods all around the world. The 2022 Digital Data Conference BioBlitz will be conducted virtually from 23-26 May 2022. To participate, all you need is an account on iNaturalist, a smartphone, tablet, or a camera and computer.
