This October, the hybrid TDWG 2022 conference will address standards for linking biodiversity data

12 October 2022

Between 17th and 21st October 2022, the Biodiversity Information Standards (TDWG) conference - to be held in Sofia, Bulgaria - will run under the theme “Stronger Together: Standards for linking biodiversity data” and will be hosted by scholarly publisher and technology provider Pensoft, in collaboration with the National Museum of Natural History, and the Institute of Biodiversity and Ecosystem Research at the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences. This year, the event will be welcoming participants in-person, as well as virtually.

In addition to opening and closing plenaries, the conference will feature 14 symposia and a mix of other formats that include lightning talks, a workshop, and panel discussion as well as contributed oral presentations and virtual posters.

A welcome reception and a banquet, provided by the hosts, will bring together the participants at the beginning and by the end of the event to provide additional networking opportunities for the participants in a more relaxed atmosphere. Additionally, on Wednesday, a guided tour of the Rila Monastery will introduce the attendees to the cultural monument and its astounding natural surroundings. 

For a seventh year in a row, all abstracts submitted to the annual conference are published in the dedicated TDWG journal: Biodiversity Information Science and Standards (BISS Journal) ordered by symposia. Thus, the abstracts have not only been made permanently and freely available in a ‘mini-paper’ format, but will also provide conference participants with a sneak peek into what’s coming at the much anticipated conference. Learn more about the unique features of BISS.
