TDWG 2021 | Connecting the world of biodiversity data: uniting people, processes, and tools

Conference

The theme for TDWG 2021 is Connecting the world of biodiversity data: uniting people, processes, and tools. In addition to opening and closing plenaries, the conference will feature 15 symposia, 2 workshops, a panel discussion, and an unconference, as well as contributed oral presentations and posters. There will also be opportunities to network and socialize on the Whova platform, chosen to host this year’s conference.
The Interest/Task Group working sessions will be held separately during the month following the virtual conference (November 2021).

Call for abstracts

We are pleased to announce the call for abstracts for TDWG 2021, the virtual conference of Biodiversity Information Standards (TDWG), which will be held 18–22 October 2021. Abstracts will be submitted to and published in Biodiversity Information Science and Standards (BISS). The deadline for the submission of abstracts is 2 August 2021. Abstracts will be peer reviewed and final approval for publication requires payment of any registration fees by the presenter. Content may be presented either live or pre-recorded for TDWG 2021. Sessions will be recorded and made available initially only to registered attendees.

Registration

While virtual, connecting and uniting the TDWG community for the sharing of standards, processes and tools, does not come free. This year’s modest registration fee includes a discount structure, and helps to defray the cost of abstract publication. Register by 1 August 2021 (UTC-4) to qualify for a $50 early registration discount. Special discounts are in place for students, post-docs, and participants from developing nations. Individual TDWG members and up to five representatives from member institutions enjoy a $25 discount for regular registration. Not yet a member? Become an individual member before registering for TDWG 2021.
