Whilst the Taxonomic Databases Working Group is a not-for-profit organisation and does not promote or endorse any particular commercial product we recognise the value to the TDWG community of information concerning, and demonstrations of, relevant products.
The Taxonomic Databases Working Group is a very active organisation, leading and supporting a great many programmes and new initiatives in the field of biodiversity informatics. The Annual Meeting is the focal point for reporting progress, new projects and the integration of work going on in parallel. New international standards are under development, more areas of interest are being opened up. All this international activity costs a lot of money, in travel costs, meeting organisation and facilities. Some of our colleagues are unable to raise funds to attend workshops and the Annual Meeting. Any support you can give is guaranteed to be of considerable benefit to the international scientific community.
If you wish to enquire about opportunities for sponsorship or presenting a product at the 2006 Annual Meeting please contact the Programme Co-ordinator Adrian Rissoné (A.Rissone(at)nhm.ac.uk).
