FUNDING Support for Registration to Attend #TDWG2021 - Hurry! Details Inside

Greetings Everyone!

The Biodiversity Information Standards (TDWG) Conference is fast-approaching – 18 - 22 October 2021. #TDWG2021

If you are interested in where data standards come from and want to learn more about efforts to develop and use them with media, citizen science, taxonomy, digitization of bio/geo collections, AI, machine learning, building knowledge graphs, conservation, trait data, etc … then this conference is for you. We also need your input on any standards and related tools/software that might be missing or in need of revision.

If you know of someone who wants to participate but may need support in order to cover the registration fee, please contact us ASAP via email to conf-organizers@tdwg.org. Also, anyone who would like to participate who is from a low or low-middle income nation has a waived registration fee.
