International Conference on Biodiversity in Jönköping

In October 2014 the annual TDWG Conference will be held at Elmia Congress Centre in Jönköping, Sweden. Around 200 participants from all over the world are expected to attend. The organizer is the Swedish part of the international network GBIF (Global Biodiversity Information Facility) that works on freely available information about the Earth's species. GBIF-Sweden has its seat at the Swedish Museum of Natural History in Stockholm.

"GBIF-Sweden has proposed to hold the conference in Jönköping because of the successful UNESCO meeting MAB ICC at Jönköping University in June 2014. Even TDWG 2014's main topic of sustainable data collection can be seen as a conceptual complement to this. Furthermore we will be able to expand existing contacts with the East Vättern Scarp Landscape Biosphere Reserve," said Anders Telenius, Node Manager at GBIF-Sweden.

"We are very pleased to welcome TDWG 2014 in Jönköping and thereby put Sweden's contribution to global research on biodiversity and sustainability in focus this year. Moreover, people and organizations working with East Vättern Scarp Landscape will be given the opportunity to inform about the biosphere reserve and to build on their international network," said André Petzold, project manager at Jönköping Convention Bureau.

"The non-profit and independent international organization Biodiversity Information Standards (TDWG) is an important component in efforts to promote research and implementation of methods related to biodiversity and sustainable development. TDWG holds annual conferences since 1985. The last five meetings have been held in Montpellier (2009), Woods Hole (2010), New Orleans (2011), Beijing (2012) and Florence (2013)."
