Crop Wild Relatives and the Role of Herbaria in Future Food Crop Security

In-person Workshops:
Symbiota Skillshare and Capacity Building Workshop
Symbiota portals–including the SEINet Network, the Consortium of Lichen Herbaria, the Consortium of Bryophyte Herbaria, and many more–include a variety of features that enable efficient data management, access, and curation. This workshop will provide hands-on training in using Symbiota tools that allow users to, for example, upload data, manage annotations, manage loans, print label data, crowdsource data transcription, and create checklists.

Envisioning a Biological Collections Action Center
The collections community is in the midst of a series of webinars, workshops, and focus groups focusing on Envisioning a Biological Collections Action Center as proposed in the recent NASEM report and authorized by the U.S. Congress. This in-person focus/discussion group during this year's Digital Data Conference will address conversations to date and broaden the input into the Action Center concept.

Addressing Roadblocks and Envisioning Solutions of the Digital Extended Specimen Concept
This two-hour workshop and discussion session will bring together biodiversity informatics and data experts from throughout our community to address some of the possibilities and challenges implementing the Digital Extended Specimen concept. This session will address solutions to date and additionally look to the community for input and discussion.

Open discussion: the NEON Biorepository infrastructure model
This discussion session is offered to complement the opportunity to visit the National Ecological Observatory Network, NEON Biorepository, in person during Digital Data 2023 at Arizona State University. The NEON project involves a structured, long-term plan to sample new, diverse, prioritized specimens across distributed sites of the North American subcontinent, process and store them a both intermediary peripheral facilities and a permanent centralized location, transform them into Darwin Core occurrences and published extended specimens, and actively make both samples and data available for loan to enable question-driven ecological and evolutionary research.
