Because good research needs good data

8th International Digital Curation Conference

Infrastructure, Intelligence, Innovation: driving the Data Science agenda

14-17 January 2013 |


IDCC brings together those who create and manage data and information, those who use it and those who research and teach about curation processes. 

Our view of ‘data’ is a broad one – video games and virtual worlds are of just as much interest as data from laboratory instruments or field observation. Whether the information originates in the arts, humanities, social or experimental sciences the issues faced are cross-disciplinary. 

Digital curators maintain, preserve, and add value to digital information throughout its life, reducing threats to its long-term value, mitigating the risk of digital obsolescence, and enhancing the potential for reuse for all purposes. 

If you are a curator, if you teach or train future curators, or if you depend on them for your work, IDCC is for you.

The 8th International Digital Curation Conference (IDCC13) will be held in Amsterdam at the Mövenpick Hotel Amsterdam City Centre and will be organised by the Digital Curation Centre, UK in partnership with the Coalition for Networked Information (CNI).

There will be a programme of workshops on Monday 14 January and Thursday 17 January, the main conference will run from 15-16 January 2013
