- published or publishable biodiversity research that depends on digital datasets,
- systematics and the use of digital data,
- ongoing research projects that derive from and use digital datasets,
- gaps and deficiencies in currently available digital data that hinder effective use,
The deadline for submitting abstracts is 15 April 2017.
