Registration has now closed


The Omni hotel is in the heart of downtown San Francisco. It is located right on the cable car line and is only a short walk to Union Square.

A number of rooms at the Omni San Francisco Hotel were allocated to IDCC14 delegates at a reduced rate but all these rooms have now been booked and no more are available at this rate..

We have arranged for a number of rooms to be reserved for conference delegates at the Holiday Inn Civic Center which is located on Eighth Street in the South of Market District of San Francisco.

To book these rooms please use this dedicated link which will take you through to the booking agent Zibrant.

Please note that the week of the conference is a very busy one in San Franciso due to a large event being held at the Moscone Center, so it may be worth checking other online booking sites for discounted deals.

Conference theme

This year the IDCC will focus on how data-driven developments are changing the world around us, recognising that the growing volume and complexity of data provides institutions, researchers, businesses and communities with a range of exciting opportunities and challenges. The Conference will explore the expanding portfolio of tools and data services, as well as the diverse skills that are essential to explore, manage, use and benefit from valuable data assets. The programme will reflect cultural, technical and economic perspectives and will illustrate the progress made in this arena in recent months

There will be a programme of workshops on Monday 24 and Thursday 27 February. The main conference programme will run from Tuesday 25 - Wednesday 26 February.

The Pre-Conference Drinks Reception will be on the evening of Monday 24 February in the Starlight Room which is located in the Sir Francis Drake Hotel on the 21st floor, 450 Powell Street at the corner of Sutter. The views across the San Francisco skyline provide an amazing backdrop.

The Conference Dinner will be on the evening of Tuesday 25 February in the City Club of San Francisco. The City Club is a unique Art Deco building which features an original 30 foot Diego Rivera mural "The Riches of California". The City Club is close to the conference hotel.

IDCC14 will be organised by the Digital Curation Centre UK in partnership with the University of California Curation Center (UC3) at the California Digital Library and the Coalition for Networked Information (CNI).
