7th International Digital Curation Conference Extends CfP

Friday, July 22nd, 2011

IDCC11 Programme Committee Co-chairs Kevin Ashley, Director, Liz Lyon, Associate Director of the DCC and Clifford Lynch, Executive Director of CNI, have announced they are extending the Call for Papers of the 7th International Digital Curation Conference (IDCC). In their announcement they stated, “Following widespread demand, we have extended the closing date for submissions to this year’s International Digital Curation Conference, IDCC11.”

Mindful of the very international nature of the Conference, they were careful to stipulate the deadline according to the provenance of Conference submissions. “The new closing date and time is Wednesday 3rd August at 08:00 UK Time. That’s .. early hours of Wednesday morning for those on the US East Coast, late Tuesday night for those far West and Wednesday afternoon for those far enough East.” They also made it clear that no further extension could be entertained, stating, “Holidays and other scheduling constraints mean that we can’t consider any further extensions: this date is final.”

The IDCC11 CfP included the following topics:

* Lessons learned from the inter-disciplinary use of open data:
examples of enablers, barriers and success stories
* Curation of mixed data collections, with open and sensitive or private content
* Gathering evidence for benefits of data sharing
* Building capacity for the effective management, sharing and reuse of open data
* Scale issues in the management of sensitive data
* Tensions between maintaining quality and openness
* Linked data, open data, closed data and provenance
* Technical and organisational solutions for data security
* Developing new metrics for open data
* Ethical issues and personal data
* Legislation and open data

to which has subsequently been added an extra issue:
* Data quality

IDCC11: Call for Papers

Tuesday, April 19th, 2011

The theme of the 7th International Digital Curation Conference (IDCC11) will be Public? Private? Personal? navigating the open data landscape. It will take place this year in Bristol, UK over 5 – 7 December 2011.

Digital curation manages, maintains, preserves, and adds value to digital information throughout its lifecycle, reducing threats to long-term value, mitigating the risk of digital obsolescence and enhancing usefulness for research and scholarship. IDCC11 will bring together practitioners who create information, those who curate and manage it, and those who use it together with those who research and teach about curation processes.

In its Call for Papers the IDCC11 Programme Committee invites submissions on current concerns in digital curation and specific concerns arising from our conference theme.
