Because good research needs good data

Support IDCC18

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.

Our last conference, which was held in Edinburgh in February 2017 included delegates from 27 countries - USA and Europe as well as Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Japan, Brazil, Korea, Soudi Arabia and South Africa; so a truly international event.This year we will once again be attracting attendees from all over the world and anticipate an audience of over 260. 

Supporting IDCC18 is a valuable opportunity for your company, organisation or institution to demonstrate active involvement in the area of digital curation and gain access to a wide spectrum of stakeholders, leaders and decision makers in the digital curation community. Through evaluation of previous events it is proven that delegates highly value the networking opportunities – supporters of IDCC18 will be able to access this value.
