Because good research needs good data

IDCC21 Programme

The 16th edition of the International Digital Curation Conference (IDCC) will be held on the 19th of April, in virtual format.

It will take place in an abbreviated form, over one day rather than the familiar two-day length, and as a co-located event with the RDA's 17th Plenary. The two events will be complementary in content and together they will form a virtual Edinburgh data week that will tackle a broad range of topics in research data management.

The abbreviated IDCC programme will contain:

  • one keynote lecture
  • papers
  • lightning talks
  • posters
  • unconference

Unfortunately we will not be hosting demos and workshops this year, to maximise the number of submissions that we can accommodate in a one-day event.

IDCC21 Programme Outline

Conference time-zone is British Summer Time, which is GMT + 1. Please note that this is a draft programme and timings may change somewhat, depending upon number of submissions that will be accepted.
