A short update on the DigitalFossil 2012 Berlin conference.
As of today, there are 43 participants who have either sent talk titles (40), or announced they will take part (3). Most of them are experienced researcher, and I am glad to report that a number or highly regarded experts will show up. As John Hutchinson said last week, we’ve pretty much got the who-is-who of fossil digitizing!
Additionally, a number of producers of tools and computer programs have either expressed interest, or in some cases have already definitively announced they will take part.
In sum, this means we will very likely reach our goal of bringing the top experts together and provide a keystone event for the communication on digitizing techniques in palaeontology.
If you’re a palaeontologist, biologist, or archaeologist and into digitizing, and you haven’t sent a talk title yet, do so until April 15! We may be able to accept submissions at a later date – but April 15 is our deadline for applying for funding.
You can find out more about the conference on the conference website. The call for abstract with a gratuitous Digital Plateosaurus picture is also on this blog.
