"Ten years back, ten years forward: achievements, lessons and the future for digital curation"

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 recognised across the globe. 

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.

At IDCC15 we aim to assess progress and help to identify and stimulate debate on the critical digital curation questions for the future.

The Call for Papers has now been released.

We would like to encourage submissions that consider what has already been achieved plus a look at how we move forward building on what we’ve learned, the likely developments and the emerging challenges in the next decade.

The conference will be held from Monday 9 February to Thursday 12 February 2015 at 30 Euston Square, London, UK.
