Dear workshop participants and others--
At the TDWG (Biodiversity Info Standards) meeting next week in New
Orleans, there will be a workshop on phylogenetic standards. The
workshop page, with the schedule, is here:
Like last year, this will be a quasi-OpenSpace meeting. The workshop
opens Monday with 3 short talks to set the stage. Then participants
are invited to discuss issues arising from the talks, and then to
discuss possible projects. Monday will end with participants
coalescing spontaneously into clusters (of about 3 to 7 people each)
to work on a project they have designed. Tuesday is the work day--
clusters will work all day on projects, taking breaks as needed.
While this may not sound like much time, a cluster with clear goals
can accomplish a lot in one day. One of the projects from last year
turned into a larger study (manuscript in preparation) that you will
hear about in my talk on Monday.
I'm going to send a separate message about project ideas.
