North American Regional Node Meeting of the Global Biodiversity Information Facility (GBIF). My presentation, "BHL Update for GBIF" is linked below.
The theme of the meeting was "Advancing Informatics, Engagement and Content." Discussions included the use of digital object identifiers (DOIs), collections and specimens in the GBIF context, organizational structure and membership in both GBIF and the North American node.
Great group of the bioinformatics gang from around the world. Picture above has just a few of those conferencing in.
Take away phrase of the day: "Biodiversity Informatics without Borders (BIwB)" - John Wieczorek
