This year's conference program has been organized in response to the survey of attendees from 2009 in Montpellier, France.  You can find the preliminary program online at:
http://www.tdwg.org/conference2010/program/

The specific points we've addressed this year include:

* Providing opportunities for more presentations from more presenters. We have opened the program via this call & have added a round of Lightning Talks so that more people within our community can tell you about the fascinating work they're doing.

* Finding a balance between time allotted for plenary sessions, parallel sessions, and working groups.

* Combining an excursion with a 2-day biodiversity survey featuring a variety of activities.  More details on the biodiversity survey will follow.

* More time during coffee & lunch breaks to allow for side discussions.

To submit an abstract for this year's conference, please follow the instructions at:
