Conference DigitalFossil 2012 Berlin Call for Abstracts



Dear colleagues,

The Museum für Naturkunde Berlin (MfN) will host the

International Conference on Fossil Digitizing and Digital Collection
Data Handling in 2012 (DigitalFossil Berlin 2012), September 24-26,
2012.

The meeting will consist of Symposia on the main Digitizing Techniques
(e.g., Laser, CT, photogrammetry), on Managing Digital Collections and
Digital Assets. Also, there will be workshops (3 h each) on digitizing
techniques, as well as an extended demonstration of the MFN’s digital
database systems and their integration with other systems, e.g., GBIF.
Regular talks will be limited to 15 minutes including discussion, and
must be given using a beamer-compatible program (e.g., MS PowerPoint).
Extended talks of 20, 25 or 30 minutes length can be suggested to the
organizers; their abstracts must be accompanied by a short text
explaining why a longer time is required (e.g., demonstration of
hardware or software). We also welcome suggestions for workshops.

Researchers interested in participating are called to submit workshop
suggestions, abstract *titles* and all author names with institutions
by March 1, 2012 to
DigitalFossil2012(at)gmail.com or in reply to the sender of this
message heinrich.mallison@gmail.com

Abstract *text* deadline is July 31, 2012. Abstracts are to be
submitted as plain-text emails, MS Word *.doc, *.docx, or *.rtf
formats.

Conference abstracts will be published on the Conference website.
Papers connected to the conference will be published in the Technical
Articles section of the fully-electronic and open access
palaeontological journal Palaeontologia Electronica; details will be
given in the First Circular.

Before deciding on your contribution, please note again: DigitalFossil
2012 Berlin aims to provide an overview of digitizing techniques and
curatorial aspects related to digital data. Research applications of
digital data and results of such research are well covered at other
conferences, and thus not part of the DigitalFossil agenda.

The conference website can be found at
www.digitalfossil2012.naturkundemuseum-berlin.de.

Participants of the annual meeting of the Paläontologische
Gesellschaft (September 24-29, 2012) who wish to give a talk at
DigitalFossil 2012 should please point out their participation in the
PalGes meeting in their abstract submission email, so that we can plan
sessions accordingly. Additionally, PalGes participants can attend
both DigitalFossil 2012 talk sessions and workshops for free as
visitor, provided there is sufficient room.

We look forward to your submissions, and hope to meet you in Berlin next fall.
