How to support the conference

The first Digital Curation Conference took place in Bath in September 2005, one year after the Digital Curation Centre was launched. Since the inaugural conference we have covered a range of curation issues from the simple question of "What is Digital Curation", through to more complex issues of infrastructure, radical sharing and open data and how to encourage collaboration and create a curation community. Content has covered topical research, bold looks into the future as well as distillations of lessons learnt from practice.

13th International Digital Curation Conference

Barcelona, 19 - 22 February 2018
Welcome to the 13th edition of the International Digital Curation Conference. The conference brings together digital curation professionals and educators with data producers and consumers to consider digital curation in a multi-disciplinary context.

This helps to ensure they are discoverable, reusable and preserved, or conversely – in the case of sensitive data – to be kept under wraps. The production of data management plans (DMPs) is mandated by an increasing number of funders worldwide, and universities increasingly seek to provide services to support researchers in this activity.

Introduction to Research Data Management

London, 30 November 2016
