TDWG 2017 Annual Conference

01st Oct, 2017 to 06th Oct, 2017
Event type 

Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada and the Canadian Museum of Nature will host the 2017 Biodiversity Information Standards (TDWG) conference in Ottawa, Canada, October 1 - October 6.

Standards for the description and exchange of biodiversity information help promote research, support decision-making for conservation and planning, and provide a means of communicating observations across taxa, sub-disciplines, and political boundaries.

The annual TDWG conference serves two purposes:

  • it is is a forum for extending, refining, and developing standards in response to new challenges and opportunities; and
  • it is a showcase for biodiversity informatics - much of which relies on the specifications provided by TDWG and other standards organizations.
