Empowering Biodiversity Research Conference II

The Empowering Biodiversity Research conference, EBR II, takes place 24-25 May 2022 at the AfricaMuseum in Tervuren. It will take you on a journey into the world of biodiversity data standards and tools and will inform you on the latest developments in the world of Biodiversity Informatics, on the state of the art in initiatives like GBIF, LifeWatch and DiSSCo, etc. and how you can benefit from such initiatives.

EBR II aims to build a bridge between Biodiversity informatics and its relative "Bioinformatics" and investigate what their crossover can bring to Biodiversity Research. Genomic information meets digital taxonomy.

Want to present a poster? Submit here your abstract until 31 March 2022.
