We've amassed a pile of WeDigBio stickers and tattoos for WeDigBio 2018 participants! These will start going out on Sept 24 to those of you who have registered your event by then. We will continue to send swag after that as event registrations are received, but we encourage everyone to register your event soon to ensure receipt!
Be a part of making WeDigBio 2018 the most inclusive, productive, and exciting event yet!
WeDigBio 2018 is Oct 18–21. Be sure to register your event by Oct 1 to receive WeDigBio stickers and tattoos for your participants. We cover a few important updates here—read on!
WeDigBio.org got a refresh.
We're glowing after a very successful WeDigBio and have you all to thank for making it so. It warms our hearts to read of the many, many tangible accomplishments -- the projects getting completed, the transcriptions and georeferences rolling in, and all the digital data that are getting added to your invaluable biodiversity specimens. It's equally exciting to hear about the communities developing and growing around your collections, institutions, universities, and organizations. We hope to continue to see you online, contributing to transcription platforms and supporting collections!
Thank you a million times over for all the work completed over the last four days!
There's still time to get in a few last transcriptions before the official end of WeDigBio 2017 (and I encourage you to do so!), so I'm going to save the lengthy, mushy thank you for tomorrow. For a bit of motivation in this home stretch, here are some highlights from today's events.
Updates for event hosts, including a super important survey link, Sococo info, and a SciStarter reminder.
