- When: May 18
- Where: Cambridge University Botanic Garden
Cambridge University Botanic Garden, established in 1846, will be hosting the 2018 European user conference. On Friday May 18, we will start in the early morning with optional trainings. You can chose to attend the “Introductory IrisBG training” or the “Advanced IrisBG training”, according to your level of experience. Paul Smith, Secretary General of BGCI, will kick off the conference with a key note speech on “Why botanic gardens need to share their collections and data with broader society”. Next, participants will explore the potential of IrisBG through exciting presentations and workshops by users and developers of the software.
Pre-conference suggestion: The PlantNetwork Plant Records Training Day is taking place on Thursday, preceding the IrisBG User Conference. You are welcome to join the members of the Plant Network at the garden tour on Thursday 17 May at 15h30 and the dinner at 18h30 at the local pub ‘The Eagle’, Cambridge.
Post-conference suggestion: On Saturday May 19, Cambridge University Botanic Garden cordially invites you to visit its annual Festival of plants, a day dedicated to bringing plants into focus.
Call for papers (closed): Following up the success of the past conferences, we keep focussing on Sharing User Experiences. The programme contains as many presentations as possible from the user community. We would like to thank all speakers for their contributions.
