Digital curation events

The DCC hosts a variety of conferences, workshops, lectures and other events throughout the year to help promote digital curation across the UK research community – and beyond. 

Individuals from a wide range of backgrounds and disciplines are brought together at our events by a shared commitment to data curation and preservation. 

You too can enjoy the chance to improve your awareness of current research activity and explore the possibility of collaborating on the development of digital curation tools, resources and best practice.

Because the DCC has an international presence, our events also give you the opportunity to compare notes on digital data curation initiatives with research teams based both at home and abroad.

Upcoming events

RDMF12: Linking Data and Repositories (and other systems)

Leicester, 18 - 19 November 2014
Background Seamless flow of content between systems and across institutional boundaries is one of the core – if perhaps utopian – goals of information management. At a basic level, there is within the research community a shared desire and a growing impetus to link publications to the datasets which underpin them, and to sustain these links for the longer-term. But while the publications will generally be held in comparatively stable repositories, data (and metadata) may be created, held in, and accessed via, a variety of different systems.

Introduction to Research Data Management and Data Management Plans

Cardiff , 19 November 2014
An internal event run as part of the institutional engagement at Cardiff Metropolitan University. The morning session brought together staff from the research office, library & IT to discuss plans for an institutional RDM strategy. In the afternoon we held a training workshop for research administrators and researchers. This mainly focused on data management planning.

Introduction to research data management for researchers - University of Glasgow

Glasgow, 21 November 2014
Research Councils and funding bodies are increasingly requiring evidence of adequate and appropriate provisions for data management and curation in new grant funding applications. This half-day workshop provides an introduction to research data management and curation, the range of activities and roles that should be considered when planning and implementing new projects, and an overview of tools that can assist with curation activities.

2nd Data Management Workshop

Cologne, 28 - 29 November 2014
The 2nd Data Management Workshop will be held from 28 to 29 November 2014 at the University of Cologne. The focus of this workshop is on (interdisciplinary) research data management. The aim of the workshop is to bring together managers and developers of project databases, repositories or data archives, data scientists, information scientist, librarians, and funding agencies. The workshop program offers invited talks and extended poster sessions. Workshop participants are welcome to present poster contributions.

Introduction to Data Management Planning & DMPonline

London, 29 January 2015
Funding bodies increasingly require evidence of appropriate provisions for data management and curation in new grant funding applications. This half-day workshop provides an introduction to Data Management Planning and DMPonline, the DCC's web-based tool to help researchers write DMPs. We've recently released a new version of DMPonline which offers a lot of flexibility in terms of how institutions can customise it. You can create your own template(s), provide example/suggested answers and add tailored guidance to help researchers respond to requirements.

10th International Digital Curation Conference

London, 9 - 12 February 2015
For a decade IDCC has bought together leaders and experts in digital curation and the significance of good curation to research and innovation is now well recognised across the globe. At IDCC15 we aim to assess our progress and to help identify and stimulate debate on the critical digital curation questions for the future. The 10th International Digital Curation Conference will be held from Monday 9 February to Thursday 12 February 2015 at 30 Euston Square, London.
