International Digital Curation Conference
About the International Digital Curation Conference
The International Digital Curation Conference (IDCC) is an established annual event with a unique place in the digital curation community, reaching out to individuals, organisations and institutions across all disciplines and domains involved in curating data and providing an opportunity to get together with like-minded data practitioners to discuss policy and practice.
Over the years, IDCC has strived to represent different communities and bring balance in terms of gender, career stage, professional background and country. We have always sought diversity in keynotes and in recent years we have issued specific chair guidelines to ensure open and inclusive discussion. This year we will introduce a code of conduct for the event and have also selected a theme to speak to issues of equality.
The global COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way we work, presenting opportunities to diversify audiences and open up participation. On the other hand, it has exacerbated existing inequalities in access to technology and family commitments in ways that have not always been addressed. We plan to run IDCC21 as a hybrid conference, conditions permitting, and will be exploring ways to enable participation for people with limited financial resources, using sponsorship support. We hope this will enable us to reach new communities and broaden the data management discussion.
Code of Conduct
At DCC we work hard to create a welcoming and open atmosphere at all our events and in our collaborations. We require all participants to agree and adhere to the rules outlined in our code of conduct for participation to events.
