In mid March Phenoscape met at the Biodiversity Synthesis Center (BioSynC) at the Field Museum of Natural History to host an education and outreach workshop, gather feedback on new user interface mockups for the Phenoscape Knowledgebase, and hold a project meeting. We sent announcements out to the Chicago morphologists, systematists, and developmental biologists. Because we are designing tools to address the general needs of the systematics and evo-devo community, we were delighted that about 20 people attended our day-long meeting. The input was very useful, and we translated it into specifications for a better user interface (in the works right now). Big thanks to Mark Westneat and staff at the BioSynC for their help in organizing this workshop as well as Lance Grande for the superb behind-the-scenes tour. Please see our wiki page about this workshop for the list of speakers and their slides.
