Save the date: 4th IrisBG User Conference at Gothenburg Botanical Garden, Sweden

  • When: 29 and 30 April 2019
  • Where: Gothenburg Botanical Garden

Gothenburg Botanical Garden will be hosting the 4th IrisBG User Conference on April 29 and 30, 2019. The garden comprises a total area of 175 hectares (ca. 430 acres), most of it being a nature reserve. The garden proper is about 40 hectares and comprises roughly 16,000 different species. To celebrate the arrival of spring, the park hosts a Japanese-style hanami (flowing-viewing) picnic during the weekend preceding the 4th IrisBG User Conference.


We will announce a draft programme, including pre- and post conference suggestions by the end of January 2019. Roughly you can expect a full day of presentations and workshops on Monday and half a training day on Tuesday. We aim at training both, beginners and advanced users, including a hands on training session.


More details and registration will be available here by the end of January 2019.

Call for papers

Following the success of the past conferences, we will keep focussing on community driven problem solving. Contributors are encouraged to focus on the challenges they face in daily record keeping and to invite the other users to share their ideas. Your contribution can focus specifically on IrisBG or may even relate to record keeping in general. It will give very useful input on how we can improve the software and allow us to share ideas regarding record keeping  practices.

We believe in inclusive collection management and our ambition is to make this conference a platform for everyone involved in record keeping. We therefore especially value contributions from horticulturalists  to broaden the scope of the conference.

Please contact Margherita Tinti at before 14 January if you would like to give a presentation or host workshop.
