The submission deadline for the below is soon, but the bar is low - a 
paragraph or two describing what you're up to, and any challenges that 
you're facing. Our main goal is to get a sense of who's doing what in this 
space, and to discuss prospects for helping each other.

If you'd like to be involved in the conversation, but won't be able to 
make it to Costa Rica, please let me know.


The Use of Wikis in Biodiversity Informatics

Workshop to be held at TDWG 2016 (Dec. 5-9) in Santa Clara de San Carlos, Costa Rica

Instruction for submitting abstracts are at 

Abstracts due: Sept. 6, 2016

Wiki technologies, in particular those built on top of Semantic MediaWiki 
and Wikidata, are being used to store, curate, query, integrate, and 
reason over a range of biodiversity-related data. This workshop will 
comprise a selection of talks describing some of these uses, followed by a 
discussion of gaps in the wiki ecology, and opportunities that might exist 
to fill those gaps through coordinated research and development.
