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.
The organizers invite you to submit abstracts for the barcoding session to David Schindel (firstname.lastname@example.org) and for the digitization session to Beth Mantle (Beth.Mantle@csiro.au).
