TDWG 2014 Workshop: Software solutions for data management in biodiversity research projects
What it is about
In this open workshop producers of software for managing biodiversity data will get the floor to introduce their solution. In the first part, we invite to a joint session where all participating software producers may introduce their data management solution in a short presentation (10min).
Within the second part, a series of parallel sessions shall be held for a more in-depth (perhaps hands-on) demonstration of those individual products that have been introduced earlier.
We invite all producers of tools and software for managing, sharing and archiving research data in the biodiversity domain to present their solutions and share there experience.
The expected audience for this workshop are scientists, data managers and project managers who would like to learn about new tools/software for managing biodiversity data.
How to participate
Are you developing software relevant for the biodiversity community and would like to present it in this session? Then, please submit a short (maximum one page) description of your tool, including links for further information to the contact address provided below by September 25, 2014. Please also submit the abstract via the TDWG abstract submission page.
We will make these descriptions available on the webpage a few weeks prior to the conference.
