The DCC is delighted to announce that a draft programme of workshops has just been published and the registration is now open. Please note that although the workshops take place before and after the conference (on 5 and 9 December), you don't need to register for the conference to attend them. 

This year's International Digital Curation Conference: "Public? Private? Personal? navigating the open data landcsape" from 5-7 December in Bristol will be presented jointly by the Digital Curation Centre in partnership with the Coalition for Networked Information (CNI).

Digital curation manages, maintains, preserves, and adds value to digital information throughout its lifecycle, reducing threats to long-term value, mitigating the risk of digital obsolescence and enhancing usefulness for research and scholarship. IDCC brings together those who create information, those who curate and manage it, those who use it and those who research and teach about curation processes.

Conference speakers: Ewan McIntosh (Founder and CEO of NoTosh), David Lynn (Head of Startegic Planning & Policy at the Wellcome Trust), Jeff Haywood (Vice Principal Knowledge Management, Chief Information Officer & Librarian at the University of Edinburgh), Andrew Charlesworth (Director of the Centre for IT and Law at the University of Bristol), Victoria Stodden (Assistant Professor, Department of Statistics at Columbia University), Heather Piwowar (DataONE postdoc research associate), Clifford Lynch (Executive Director, Coalition for Networked Information), Professor Philip E. Bourne (Departament of Pharmacology at the University of California San Diego), Natasa Milic-Frayling (Principal Researcher at Microsoft Research Cambridge (MSRC)

Don't forget the conference hashtag #idcc11.

We look forward to seeing you there!
