Time to get serious about writing up your abstract for the upcoming TDWG 2016 meeting in Costa Rica this December http://www.tdwg.org/conference2016/. The due date is 6 September for invited speakers in symposia as well as for contributed oral and poster presentations.  The body of the abstract should be 400 words or less; see https://mbgserv18.mobot.org/ocs/index.php/tdwg/tdwg2016/schedConf/cfp for more information.

Currently 13 symposia (three symposia combined recently under the banner of Semantics for Biodiversity Science - An Interoperability Frontier), 7 workshops, and 10 Interest/Task Groups are planning to meet at TDWG this year.
