Dear Colleagues,

The TDWG 2017 conference is fast approaching and the organising committee 
would like to urge you to both register and book your accommodation as

symposia, workshops, posters and software demos based on this year's 
theme - Data Integration in a Big Data Universe: Associating Occurrences 
with Genes, Phenotypes, and Environments. We also have an exciting line up 
of social/networking opportunities including a welcoming reception, "A 
night at the Museum", hike in the Gatineau mountains to see the Fall 
colours, collection tours, and a banquet open to all participants and 
guests. Please come and help make this conference a great success, as well as joining 
Canada in celebrating its 150th anniversary!

venue, and book accommodation is on the conference website: 

We look forward to seeing everyone in October!

On behalf of the 2017 organizers,
James and Joel
