Hi Everyone,

RE: Darwin Core Hour 8: A bite from the core - testing for data quality

In this upcoming episode of Darwin Core Hour (DCH), we head down under 
to join Arthur D. Chapman and Lee Belbin for a conversation about Darwin 
Core and Data Quality. We'll hear about collaborative efforts across the 
aggregator community (specifically GBIF, VertNet, ALA, and iDigBio) to 
harmonize data quality algorithms for the downstream data use by 
researchers, developers, etc. These efforts are the result of the 
Biodiversity Information Standards (TDWG) Data Quality Interest Group 
(DQIG) work to develop a suite of common, shared tests and data format 
expectations for use by aggregators.

TIME: (please check carefully, the international dateline is involved in 
this DCH)
7 AM Wednesday Sept 6th (Tasmania)
5 PM Tuesday Sept 5th (USA EDT)
6 PM Tuesday Sept 5th (Buenos Aires)
21:00 UTC Tuesday Sept 5th
