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.

From Data Curation to Software Curation: Enhancing Reproducibility and Sustainability of Data and Software

4 February 2019
This workshop will enable understanding of approaches to software curation, including its importance in enabling reproducible research.  While a strong focus on data curation already exists, software curation is an emerging practice of equal importance. The workshop will present case studies to stimulate group discussion on how those engaged in facilitating reproducible research can support or actively engage with this. .
