Panel 1: Research, Informatics, and the Published Record
Panelist: Donat Agosti
Presentation Title: "The Future"
Dr. Agosti, a specialist on the taxonomy of ants, is heavily involved in the conservation of biodiversity. A founding member of the Conservation Commons, he is the president of Plazi, a Swiss based international association aimed at creating semantically enhanced linked taxonomic literature, related repositories, XML schemas, and resolving the copyright barrier. His presentation features bold slides that challenged the audience to truly think about the future of biodiversity digitization and the many issues that confront the success of such plans.
