We kindly remind you that the deadline for submitting an abstract to the
European Geosciences Union (EGU) General Assembly 2009 is 13 January 2009! 

We cordially invite you to submit an abstract for the Biodiversity
Informatics session, the main objective of which is to highlight the value
of adopting informatics standards for both Biodiversity and Earth and Space
Science disciplines thereby promoting interoperability across heterogeneous
systems and, in particular, demonstrating how the kinds of observational
data mobilised by the Global Biodiversity Information Facility network can
be integrated with other geospatial data to address issues relating to
climate change, protected area management, invasive species, etc.
