We are excited to announce two additions to the TDWG 2017 program:

i. A pre-conference data carpentry workshop will be held at the Museum of
Nature on Sept. 30 and Oct. 1. Details can be found at
https://idigbio.github.io/2017-09-30-TDWG-Ottawa/, and registration for the
workshop will be available shortly on the conference registration site
<https://www.regonline.com/tdwg2017>. (If you have already registered for
the conference, you can amend your registration to include the workshop.)
These data carpentry workshops are excellent and popular;  we will restrict
registration to TDWG attendees until the early-bird registration deadline
(Aug. 1), after which we will open it up to local students and the general
public, until the course capacity is reached.

ii. We have added a keynote address from Javier de la Torre, founder and
CEO of CartoDB. Many of you know Javier from his many years of involvement
with TDWG, and for his visionary leadership in visualization and location
intelligence. He will be speaking Tuesday or Wednesday morning. Recall that
we have two other outstanding keynotes - Rod Page on Monday morning, and
Pam Soltis on Thursday.

We'd also like to remind everyone that the deadline for abstract
submissions is this Friday, July 14. Please see the call for abstracts
<https://tdwg.github.io/conferences/2017/call-for-abstracts/> for details,
and instructions on submitting an abstract

We look forward to seeing you in Ottawa!
