The objective of the conference is to promote discussion and consensus building amongst stakeholders about the main criteria and requirements necessary to develop training courses for professionals in digital curation in the cultural heritage sector. Results from projects and initiatives actively involved in education, training and professional development in the field of digital curation and digital preservation will be presented and discussed. There will also be an opportunity to examine the Curriculum Framework, how it can be applied, to evaluate how existing training fits in the CF, and to assess gaps experienced in training courses design.

International Digital Curation Conference 2013 (IDCC13)
Venue: Mövenpick Hotel, Amsterdam, Netherlands
IDCC brings together those who create and manage data and information, those who use it and those who research and teach about curation processes. Our view of ‘data’ is a broad one – video games and virtual worlds are of just as much interest as data from laboratory instruments or field observation. Whether the information originates in the arts, humanities, social or experimental sciences the issues faced are cross-disciplinary. Digital curators maintain, preserve, and add value to digital information throughout its life, reducing threats to its long-term value, mitigating the risk of digital obsolescence, and enhancing the potential for reuse for all purposes. If you are a curator, if you teach or train future curators, or if you depend on them for your work, IDCC is for you.

Impact: redefining the measurement of collection care
Preservation Advisory Centre conference, 15 February 2011, British Library Conference Centre (link to location )
Digitisation, digital collecting, rising energy costs and the changed economic climate have prompted many organisations to re-think their approach to collection care. This one-day conference questions what we seek to achieve from collection care activities now and in the future, how we communicate our goals, and whether we have the evidence and metrics to effectively support the arguments we make.
We invite you to shape the debate. Following presentations on the context for collection care, the role of evidence, an overview of the impact of preservation management in libraries and examples of methodologies in practice, the afternoon features round table discussion sessions on two themes.
Workshop for digital curators and repository managers - Monday 7 February
Do you have cases where data is dependent on the software used to generate or manage it? Where you've been asked to preserve an online service? Or where software is a research output in its own right and needs curation?
If so, you need to understand where and how to preserve software, as well as data, for future use. Fortunately there is a free JISC-funded workshop intended to give you a head start in this emerging area. It is being held on 7 February in London, and is particularly well suited to your projects. Experts from the Digital Curation Centre, the Software Sustainability Institute, and the Science and Technology Facilities Council will be on hand to guide and advise practitioners through the particular challenges that software offers.
