This message contains time-critical information requiring immediate 
action. Please read it now.

2006, expressed interest in attending the Meeting, or have attended

Removal Request".

The 2006 Annual Meeting and Symposium of the Taxonomic Databases 
Working Group will be held at the Missouri Botanical Garden, St. 
Louis, Missouri, USA, from 15 - 22 October 2006. The meeting web site 
can be accessed here:


Registration is open now. There is an active link on the Registration 
Page to the RegOnline system which is handling registration for the 
meeting and has further links to discount booking at the recommended 
hotel and discount car rental.


 From previous experience we know that delegates are slow to register 
and make hotel bookings. Anyone who attended the meeting in St. 
Petersburg in 2005 will know the possible consequences of late hotel 
bookings and late visa applications! Late registration is very 
disruptive to the smooth running of the meeting, making it difficult 
to plan meeting rooms, catering and transport. Late hotel bookings 
cause problems for the recommended hotel and may cost the TDWG money 
if we do not fulfill our advance booking commitment. This is a strong 
plea from the Meeting Organisers for ALL delegates to register and 
book your hotel room immediately. If you require help or further 
information please contact me without delay.


A late registration penalty fee of 50 $US will apply after 13 September 2006.
The deadline for hotel discount is 13 September 2006.


Abstracts for presentations by delegates were invited in June. Please 
see the Abstracts Page for details and Instructions for Authors. 
Abstracts MUST be submitted in the required format.

The official deadline for Abstracts was 20 August 2006. This has been 
extended to 23:59 GMT on Saturday 2 September. There will be no 
further extension.

Please accept our apologies for cross-posting if you receive this 
message more than once.
