Digital Data in Biodiversity Research Conference: Emerging Innovations for Biodiversity Data

04th Jun, 2018 to 06th Jun, 2018
Event type 


The Berkeley Natural History Museums, the Berkeley Initiative for Global Change Biology, and iDigBio are hosting the second annual Digital Data in Biodiversity Research Conference, to be held in Berkeley, CA, 4-6 June 2018.

The rapid mobilization of digitized biodiversity data, led largely in the United States by the National Science Foundation’s Advancing Digitization of Biodiversity Collections program, has resulted in a substantial increase in available data for research and related activities. The 2018 conference will again encompass the uses of digitized data across all biodiversity disciplines, with special emphasis on digitized specimen data and the potential for “big data” analytics in organismal biology.
