PAASE members are supporting the development of the Philippine Biodiversity Information Platform (PhilBIP), a common core software package to enable biodiversity researchers in the country to build compatible information systems based on global standards. PhilBIP will be a major topic of discussion in the first Philippine Biodiversity Informatics Workshop sponsored by the University of the Philippine's Center for Integrative & Development Studies . The workshop will be held on 19 July 2011 (program is shown above) with the goal of building a community of researchers guiding the requirements and design of such a platform, which will enhance information exchange and collaboration as well as global visibility of Philippine megabiodiversity.
