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.

London, 30 November 2016
Data management planning of some form has been accepted good practice for many years as a means to ensure that data outputs are managed appropriately. 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.
