TDWG 2008 a success!

By: Alex Chapman

TDWG 2008 concluded successfully in Fremantle, with a record turnout and a great deal of interest in the work presented.

With some 180 participants coming from all over the globe to the most remote city on the planet, attendance was the highest for any TDWG conference, showing the increasing interest in the field of biodiversity informatics and the associated data standards that TDWG develops.

Over the course of 6 days some 78 presentations, 37 posters, 16 demonstrations and workshops and 9 Special Interest Groups were presented and held. 

Most of the presentations and posters in the form of PowerPoint, PDF and flash video files can be found at http://www.tdwg.org/conference2008/program/slides-upload/.
