Online Taxonomy - One day conference
Organised by Malcolm Scoble and Paul Wilkin
Is the Internet really making taxonomic information more accessible to its many actual or potential users? Certainly much effort is being made to put such content online, but how effective are we in achieving this end? This one-day meeting, with its line-up of international speakers, aims to provide an update on progress. It will feature a number of substantive online taxonomy initiatives and a critical review of the current position. The meeting will address the question of whether users’ needs are being met and will conclude with a talk (also serving as an Evening Lecture) on the use of informatics in related disciplines. The event should appeal to all producers and users of taxonomic data.
This one day conference will be an open meeting but registration will be essential. To register, please complete the regsitration form and return it to The Linnean Society.
An evening meeting will follow which is free and open to all:
Paleoclimatic impacts on biodiversity and ecosystems - insights from ecoinformatics.
