We have had to change some of our plans for the Biodiversity Knowledge Management Forum here in Sydney in early November, unfortunately, because of the recent horrific events elsewhere. The Catalogue of Life workshop and Species 2000 meetings have been postponed, tentatively to early March 2002, in the week before the GBIF meetings in Canberra. However, support has been strong for us to continue with other parts of the BioForum in November, so we are doing that (subject, of course, to no further hostile activities). As well as the planned TDWG conference and IOPI, etc. meetings, we are also now planning a 1-day regional workshop tentatively entitled 'Bioinformatics, the GTI and GBIF in Asia-Oceania' as partial replacement for the CofL workshop, on 8th November. Details of the changes are on the BioForum website. Email Karen Wilson or relevant conveners of meetings if you want further information. Those planning to take part in the various activities, could you please return the appropriate registration form soon so that we have an indication of numbers for catering, field trips, etc.
