TDWG 2010 - Woods Hole

By: Lee Belbin

Registration for TDWG 2010 Annual Conference in Woods Hole, Massachusetts, USA, 26 September to 1 October 2010 is at http://www.tdwg.org/conference2010/

Note that this year, accommodation and meal options are included in the registration process. This year's conference program has been organized in response to the survey of attendees from 2009 in Montpellier, France.  You can find the preliminary program online at:


The specific points addressed this year include:

  • Providing opportunities for more presentations from more presenters. We have opened the program via this call & have added a round of Lightning Talks so that more people within our community can tell you about the fascinating work they're doing. 
  • Finding a balance between time allotted for plenary sessions, parallel sessions, and working groups.
  • Combining an excursion with a 2-day biodiversity survey featuring a variety of activities.  More details on the biodiversity survey will follow.
  • More time during coffee & lunch breaks to allow for side discussions.

If you are giving any type of presentation, please please follow the instructions at http://www.tdwg.org/conference2010/abstracts/
