NEW this year: We are pleased to announce the first ever Digital Data BioBlitz will be conducted virtually June 5-9, 2021 using iNaturalist.  To participate, all you need is a smartphone, tablet, or a camera and computer and some time spent outdoors. We will also feature a discussion session focused on the increasing relevance of citizen science platforms like iNaturalist as data sources for biodiversity research. Stay tuned for more details on both the bioblitz and discussion session!

This year's conference is hosted by the Florida Museum of Natural History in collaboration with iDigBio and the Natural Science Collections Alliance and will be held virtually, June 7-9. The conference provides an important opportunity to explore digital data tools, techniques, research protocols, discoveries, and outcomes across all biodiversity research domains.
