Hi Everyone,

Please join us tomorrow for Darwin Core (Quarter) Hour - Extensions in 

Time Date: 9 AM EDT, 2 PM London, 4 PM Kenya ON Thursday 5 October
WHERE: http://idigbio.adobeconnect.com/tdwg2017

In this special Darwin Core Hour webinar we will tackle a topic that 
annoys some, excites others, and (at times) puzzles the rest of us: 
Darwin Core Extensions. As existing extensions are being used 
increasingly by the biodiversity informatics community and as the number 
of new extensions that are being proposed grows rapidly, it is important 
to understand what they refer to and why they are becoming so popular 
within the community. By exploring some examples, we will try to answer 
the following questions: What are extensions? How do they work? And, 
under which circumstances would I ever use them?

Presenter: Paula Zermoglio
Moderators: Holly Little, Dag Endresen, David Bloom

DETAILS. At TDWG 2017 Conference on Thursday, the Darwin Core Hour team 
is presenting a talk "Standards in Action: The Darwin Core Hour" and we 
hope that you will join us to hear this special edition of Darwin Core 
Hour and participate in our mini-DwC (Quarter) Hour Extensions in Short.
