TDWG 2008 is only a few days away. We have around 170 people registered from 25 countries and 110 organizations. 

The program has been finalized. There are 82 presentations, 37 posters and 12 computer demonstrations! The Editorial Team (Anna Weitzman, Lee Belbin, Gail Kampmeier and Arturo AriƱo have processed more than 100 abstracts. The Proceedings of TDWG will be online by the start of the meeting and printed for those who have requested it.

We are impressed with the enthusiastic response for the tutorials. We have 234 registrations for the four tutorials. At registration, we will need to allocate you to one of the two (repeated) sessions (8 and 13).

Note that there are group meetings on Sunday 19th all are free to attend. Of particular interest are the first Phylogenetics Interest Group meeting and the metadata workshop.

It promises to be a great meeting in a great location! On behalf of the TDWG Executive Committee, I hope that you have a great time.
