“Ten years back, ten years forward: achievements, lessons and the future for digital curation”
For a decade IDCC has brought together leaders and experts in digital curation and the significance of good curation to research and innovation is now well recognised across the globe. The first Digital Curation Conference took place in Bath in September 2005; one year after the Digital Curation Centre was launched. Since the inaugural conference they have covered a range of curation issues from the simple question of “What is Digital Curation”, through to more complex issues of infrastructure, radical sharing and open data and how to encourage collaboration and create a curation community. Content has covered topical research, bold looks into the future as well as distillations of lessons learnt from practice.
IDCC15 aimed to take a 10-year view whether into the past, present or future, to assess the progress and to help identify and stimulate debate on the critical digital curation questions for the future, focusing on how to move forward building on what has been learned.
The 10th International Digital Curation Conference was held from Monday 9 February to Thursday 12 February 2015 at 30 Euston Square, London.
30 Euston Square is a building located at the corner of Euston Road and Melton Street, London NW1. Originally built as the headquarters of an assurance company, it has since been converted to form the headquarters of the Royal College of General Practitioners (RGCP).
The main conference took place over the first two days followed by two further days of workshops and other satellite events.
