*Upstream, Downstream: embedding digital curation in workflows for data
science, scholarship and society*
The International Digital Curation Conference (IDCC) will take place in
Edinburgh from 20-23 February 2017. The organising committee are now
inviting submissions. IDCC, now in its 12th year, brings together
digital curation professionals and educators with data producers and
consumers to consider digital curation in a multi-disciplinary context.
The theme for this year's conference is embedding digital curation.
Definitions of digital curation have changed little, but its scope is
becoming ever more pervasive. Data science and open science are gaining
prominence. Public infrastructures for data storage, sharing and
publishing are gaining capability, while the research publishing sector
rapidly evolves. For policy makers, the question of how to ensure
research data is findable, accessible, interoperable and reusable
(FAIR) is tied to the question of how to ensure flexible and resilient
infrastructures are openly available to support communities in that
We invite submissions addressing these questions, including but not
limited to the following topics:
- Policy harmonisation and monitoring for a joined-up data world
- Capacity development for open science skills and readiness
- Reproducibility and provenance across research workflows
- Sensitivity, ethical data management
- Reusability of digital collections
- Discoverability and data publishing
Submissions can take a number of forms, including research papers,
practice papers, posters and workshops. Papers are all considered for
fee-free open-access publication in the International Journal of
Digital Curation.

deadlines, please visit the conference website
