Dear colleagues,

We are pleased to invite you to a TDWG 2020 Birds of a Feather (BoF)
discussion on 22nd September, (UTC 14:30 – 16:30).

The details of the session are:

TDWG 2020 Birds of Feather session, “BoF01: Converging Digital Specimens
and Extended Specimens - Towards a global specification” (
https://www.tdwg.org/conferences/2020/working-sessions/), co-convened by
Alex Hardisty (Cardiff University, DiSSCo) and Andrew Bentley (KU

Technical Team, you may find this discussion interesting. Please add this

To join the BoF, it’s necessary for individuals to register for the TDWG
