(Apologies for cross-postings)

Dear Colleagues,

We are extremely pleased to announce the 2019 open digital science week on
biological and geological diversity, biodiversity_next
<https://biodiversitynext.org/>, which will take place at the
in Leiden, The Netherlands, 21–25 October 2019. This historic joint
conference is co-organised by Biodiversity Information Standards (TDWG),
Consortium of European Taxonomic Facilities (CETAF), Distributed System of
Scientific Collections (DiSSCo), Global Biodiversity Information Facility
(GBIF), and iDigBio, and is hosted by Naturalis Biodiversity Center.

This conference is organized around four themes or tracks
<https://biodiversitynext.org/call-for-symposia/>–science, standards,
infrastructure, and policy & International Coordination–and how these
themes intertwine and interact to underpin and produce robust decisions for
the future. We hope that this meeting will act as a catalyst to inspire
participation by both early career and established scientists working in
biological and ecological diversity science, biodiversity and geodiversity
informatics, e-infrastructures, natural science collections, citizen
science, and conservation and science policy.

The structure for biodiversity_next, which also replaces the TDWG annual
meeting, will feature plenaries each morning with keynote speakers who will
inspire and challenge us, and parallel breakout sessions that will provide
opportunities for working groups, discussion, panels, and presentations.

You are invited to submit proposals for breakout sessions events (e.g.,
symposia, workshops, interest group meetings, panel discussions).

For full consideration, please submit your proposal via this form
<https://biodiversitynext.org/call-for-symposia/> by end of day Friday, 30
November 2018.

Completed proposals must include the following information:


   Names, email addresses, and affiliations of all organizers

   Type of event being proposed

   Title of event

   Abstract (<300 words)

   Relevant track(s)

   Specify if submitted/endorsed/supported by a co-organising partner or
   local host of biodiversity_next

   Number of 90-minute sessions requested. We will accommodate requests of
   more than one session as space and time allows. If your event is not
   designed to fill an entire session, provide the total number of minutes
   requested under "other."

Please note: This is a NOT a call for abstracts for individual
presentations (e.g., talks or posters), which will be announced after
proposals solicited here have been selected and announced. If you have
further questions, please use the contact form
