meeting site is at the Hotel Albuquerque at Old Town, located in the
heart of Albuquerque's historical district. In addition to invited
and submitted talks, a poster session, and trade show, the
conference will offer several 'special sessions' on border and
permit issues, data sharing and bioinformatics, issues involving
Federally-associated collections, and training the next generation
of collections care personnel.  We are offering a selection of
half-day workshops and one full-day workshop that will highlight
recent advances in biodiversity informatics.  Several half-day and
