The decision was reached today to extend the deadline for abstract submission to 5 April 2019 for Biodiversity_Next.  Please see the email below from the earlier deadline with links to the original call, list of symposia, workshops, and meetings, as well as instructions for submission. Some may have tried to register with Pensoft yesterday and run into issues, but these are now resolved.

Hope to see you in Leiden!

Dear ECNers,

This is to remind you that the Call for Abstracts for the joint  Biodiversity_Next conference in Leiden, The Netherlands, 19-25 October 2019 is still open.  This conference also serves as the annual meeting for Biodiversity Information Standards (TDWG).  With over sixty programmed symposia, workshops, and other events  the conference will bring together major international organisations, research scientists, and policy makers to look at the horizon of data-driven biodiversity and geodiversity research and uses.

For best consideration, please submit your abstract by the 22 March deadline. Conference registration is scheduled to open 26 March with a limited number of early early bird registrations available. Sign up on the website for latest news, follow biodiversitynext on Facebook and Twitter @biodiv_next and use #biodiversity_next.
