IDCC14: Save the Date


The 9th International Digital Curation Conference (IDCC14) will be held the week beginning Monday 24 February 2014 at the Mission Bay Conference Centre at the University of California San Francisco (UCSF). The Conference theme will be “Commodity, catalyst or change-agent? Data-driven transformations in research, education, business and society.”

This year the IDCC is bringing a particular focus on how data are changing the world around us,  recognising that the growing volume and complexity of data provides institutions, businesses and communities with a range of exciting opportunities and challenges. The Conference will explore different drivers, the expanding portfolio of tools and data services as well as the diverse skills which are essential for organisations to manage, use and benefit from many 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 2014. The main conference programme will run from Tuesday 25 – Wednesday 26 February 2014.

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).

The Call for Papers and submission details will be announced later this month.
