Got biological or geological data? Do you generate data? Consume data for research / policy development? Manage and mobilize these data? Some topics you’ll see covered include:

  • Machine learning and biodiversity image analysis
  • e-floras, e-faunas, and species pages
  • Specimen data mobilization, from the DiSSCo point-of-view

  • Connecting biodiversity data with knowledge graphs
  • Controlled vocabularies in multiple languages
  • Curating interdisciplinary data in the biodiversity research community
  • The Digital Extended Specimen
  • Challenges of sharing ecological data
  • BHL’s strategic plan and review new tools and advances
  • Mushrooming, community science, and sharing biodiversity data
  • Community building for our shared data future
  • Maintaining the taxonomic backbone (or connecting those who try)
