Event Description

The Consortium for the Barcode of Life (CBOL) at the Smithsonian Institution and CSIRO in Canberra, Australia, are the co-organizers of a full-day symposium/workshop at the 12th Pacific Science Association Inter-Congress, Suva, Fiji 8-12 July 2013. The session is endorsed by the Oceania GBIF Node and the Global Taxonomy Initiative of the Convention on Biological Diversity.

The description of the session is presented below. You will see that the day will be divided between presentations on barcoding as a tool for digitizing collections and a training workshop on other digitization techniques. Since both barcoding and collection digitization are community-based initiatives, the session will be an open, distributed Webinar. Registration which will be limited to 100 web-participants in each session. Here's the information you will need to participate:

·Session prospectus [PDF]

·Schedule and abstracts for Wednesday afternoon session [PDF] (Fiji time; GTM +12 hours) on Collection Digitization, chaired by Beth Mantle, CSIRO

· Schedule and abstracts for Thursday morning session [PDF] (Fiji time) on DNA Barcoding in the Pacific, chaired by David Schindel, Smithsonian Institution

· Register for the webinar (Wednesday, Thursday) . Instructions will be sent to registrants on how to connect to the Webinar.
