>From Chris Freeland-


Registration is now open for TDWG 2010 Annual Conference in Woods Hole,
Massachusetts, USA, 26 September to 1 October 2010.  Visit the conference
web site for details, a link to registration, and to reserve accommodations:



This year's conference program has been organized in response to the survey
of attendees from 2009 in Montpellier, France.  You can find the preliminary
program online at:



The specific points we've addressed this year include:


* Providing opportunities for more presentations from more presenters. We
have opened the program via this call & have added a round of Lightning
Talks so that more people within our community can tell you about the
fascinating work they're doing.


* Finding a balance between time allotted for plenary sessions, parallel
sessions, and working groups.


* Combining an excursion with a 2-day biodiversity survey featuring a
variety of activities.  More details on the biodiversity survey will follow.


* More time during coffee & lunch breaks to allow for side discussions.


To submit an abstract for this year's conference, please follow the
instructions at:



Please direct questions to Chris Freeland (tdwg2010 [at] gmail.com or
