International Digital Curation Conference, 20-23 February 2017, Edinburgh, Scotland, UK

 

 

The 12th International Digital Curation Conference (IDCC17) will be held from 20-23 February 2017 at the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh (RCSEd). The conference brings together digital curation professionals and educators with data producers and consumers to consider digital curation in a multi-disciplinary context.

There will be a programme of workshops on Monday 20 February and Thursday 23 February and the main conference will run from Tuesday 21 to Wednesday 22 February 2017.

The theme of this year's IDCC is "Upstream, Downstream: embedding digital curation workflows for data science, scholarship and society". The programme focuses on the challenge of embedding digital curation in organisational workflows to ensure that not only is data findable, accessible, interoperable and reusable (FAIR), but that we have flexible and resilient infrastructures openly available to support communities in this endeavour.
