Join the U.S. National Museum of Natural History â€“ Smithsonian (NMNH), Integrated Digitized Biocollections (iDigBio), and Global Biodiversity Information Facility (GBIF) for a two-day virtual event, Biodiversity Digitization: Celebrating a Decade of Progress, to be held September 22-23, 2021.
The first two decades of the 21st century have seen huge gains in the digitization and mobilization of the worldâ€™s biodiversity data. Natural history museums and biodiversity collections on virtually every continent have collaborated across the globe to develop and harness a suite of emerging technologies and efficiencies. These tools have liberated data from millions of species occurrence and biodiversity specimen records and fueled an ever-expanding network of high-quality research. This conference is dedicated to celebrating these successes and to inspiring development of an even greater palette of accomplishments in the decades to come. Register at https://bit.ly/3zDMcQS.
