  • Title: e-Biosphere '09
    Descriptive info: Workshop Resolution (PDF).. e-Biosphere 09 Workshop: 4-5 June 2009.. A two-day Workshop was held in the Flett Theater of the Natural History Museum (London) following the three day e-Biosphere 09 International Conference (see.. www.. e-biosphere09.. org.. ).. The workshop participants included 34 representatives of Biodiversity Informatics (BI) initiatives, including: organizations that are leaders in BI; major BI projects, programs, and development centres; and other important players.. Objectives of the Workshop:.. Use the input provided by the e-Biosphere 09 International Conference as background to discuss important gaps and overlaps in information system coverage and interoperability among extant systems and services, and to develop a list of priority action items to address these shortcomings;.. Discuss the experiences, obstacles, opportunities, and potential business models for a sustainable Biodiversity Informatics landscape; and.. Use the input provided by the e-Biosphere 09 International Conference as background to discuss the new functionalities and interconnections needed by current and future users, and to develop a list of priority action items.. Results of the Workshop.. Participants in the two day workshop reviewed the ideas expressed during the three day conference and formulated a Resolution (.. PDF.. ) concerning next steps in developing a strategic road map for Biodiversity Informatics.. The workshop participants readily acknowledged that they were a small segment of the biodiversity informatics community and that these initiatives are only the beginning of a much broader effort.. The Workshop Resolution.. The Resolution (.. ) identifies several priority action items, including:.. Creating a seamlessly connected virtual laboratory or platform for integrating, synthesizing, and  ...   Call for Consultation and Communication.. The workshop Resolution points out that an effective system of community-wide consultation and communication will be essential.. The e-Biosphere.. (OCC) was originally intended to stimulate discussion and development of position papers prior to the conference itself.. The OCC, which was closed for a while after the conference, has recently re-opened.. As one of the recent posters to the site noted, “This site includes plenty of cumulative, collaborative knowledge building for biodiversity informatics … This site has also historical value, because it demonstrates what kinds of issues were and still are important when biodiversity informatics will be developed collaboratively.. ”.. We propose to use the OCC, at least for the time being, for the following purposes:.. Feedback on the e-Biosphere Conference and Communications.. We invite you to return to the OCC and make your post-conference comments known.. We would also appreciate comments on other communications mechanism that you would like to see for the e-Biosphere community.. Please enter your comments and suggestions on the General Discussion forum under.. Feedback on Conference and Communications.. Call for Expressions of Interest.. The e-Biosphere Steering Committee calls for expressions of interest from institutions, projects and individuals that are willing to participate in any of the action items proposed in the Workshop Resolution and/or that wish to propose and lead additional initiatives.. Such expressions of interest should be placed in the General Discussion forum under.. Call for Expressions of Interest and Initiatives.. Overview and Objectives.. Workshop Links..

    Descriptive info: Break-out Discussion Groups.. Break-out Group Summaries.. Introduction.. Developing World.. Basic Biodiversity Research.. Ecology and Ecosystems.. Standards Development and Management.. Training Biodiversity Informaticists.. Breakout discussion groups at the e-Biosphere09 conference addressed the concerns of persons interested in a range of topics from marine biodiversity informatics to training future biodiversity informaticists (see list to the right).. A convener and a rapporteur were selected for each group from among those who registered to attend it.. All groups were asked to address, from the point of view of their topic area, the following questions:.. What do we want the future of biodiversity informatics to look like with regard to [area of interest of the breakout group], and what is the roadmap to get there?.. What are [people with this interest area] currently not able to do that they would like to be able to do with the help of biodiversity informatics?.. In addition, some groups also chose to address the question “How should Biodiversity Informatics develop over the next 5-10 years to provide maximum value to and impact on research and society?” (which may have been formulated differently in different groups).. Each group had unique answers that were related to the area of interest being addressed.. However, there were several common themes that emerged.. The conference attendees made it known though the breakout discussions that it is highly desirable to develop interoperability and integration across many levels of biological organization  ...   should be conditional on the presence of a data management plan & open access to the resulting (high quality, properly attributed) data; and.. Data publication needs to be a community expectation (mandatory for publication, GenBank model).. However, they also said that some new rules are needed for guarding quality and encouraging good behavior, which includes sharing data quickly after its generation, giving attribution when using data obtained from others via the internet, and mutual respect between discipline scientists and the information and computer scientists involved in the informatics arena.. Further, new web-based techniques should be used to broaden interactions among disciplines by.. Building social communities focused on citizen science activities.. Creating a (market) place where demand (science) and capacity (the public) can meet, make coalitions, establish priorities, etc.. Establishing dialogue among different communities, and with users.. Constructing a framework for linking.. local initiatives into a global biodiversity community.. biodiversity with other kinds of user communities.. Informatics should be promoted among professionals among professionals and the public by.. Developing a set of global “benefits-of-use-of-informatics” cases, and.. Leveraging established groups such as GBIF, Conservation Commons, Encyclopedia of Life, to build awareness of and access to data, information, and tools.. Specific desires and recommendations of the breakout groups are given in the reports from the 10 groups, and summarized in the PowerPoint presentation used in the plenary session on the day following the breakout session..
