Re: NBN Conference

I received the following information from Trevor James recently and noticed it hadn't been mentioned here, so I thought I'd post it:

Dear colleague,

The National Biodiversity Network Conference this year is to be held at the Flett Theatre, The Natural History Museum, London, on Friday 17th November 2006.

The topic this year is:  "Who has been using our records?: making use of data through the NBN"

Speakers include:

David Mercer (National Grid)
Dr Jon Webb (Natural England/EN)
Ellen Wilson and Niels Cadee (RSPB)
Dr Gavin Broad (CEH)
Dr Stuart Ball (JNCC)
Prof. Jonathan Silvertown (Open University) Emily Reynolds (London Borough of Redbridge) Peter Brown (Ladybird Recording Scheme) Dr Jim Hollinshead (Liverpool John Moores University)

The topics are very broad ranging, and aim to appeal to a broad audience of people actively interested in the use of biodiversity data for all manner of purposes.

As such, the Conference is, this year, being broadened beyond the voluntary sector (although they are still given first option to attend), and we hope to see many more people from the local and national biological data world.

There will also be a number of displays and demonstrations.

Programmes and booking forms will shortly be available to download from the NBN website at www.nbn.org.uk   or can be obtained from me direct.

Attendance fee for other than representatives of voluntary societies: £15, including buffet refreshments, etc.

The Conference is being sponsored this year by National Grid.

Yours sincerely,

Trevor James
