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. As in previous years, IDCC is organised by the Digital Curation Centre with the support of the Coalition for Network Information. 

Trust through Transparency

The main theme of IDCC24 this year will be Trust through Transparency taken from every vantage point of our communities.  

One of the (many) concerns of this age is the ability to trust information around us, especially as we enter a new era of Artificial Intelligence, where what you see cannot always be believed.  

Transparency is one way to promote trust, by being clear about what we do, and why we do it. This is true whether you are the researcher creating data, the repository that curates that data, or a reuser of the deposited data.

The call for papers for IDCC24, is now open.   We are inviting submissions for:
