The DCC welcomes contributions and participation from individuals, organisations and institutions interested in the curation of data and the management of repositories for science and scholarship. This includes all disciplines and domains that are engaged in the creation, use, re-use and long-term management of digital data from researchers and curators, through to policy makers and funders.

All proposals will be considered for papers, workshops, demonstrations and posters with both a practical and a research focus by our Programme Committee, chaired by:

--Chris Rusbridge, Director of the Digital Curation Centre
--Professor Tony Hey, Vice President of Technical Computing Initiative (TCI), Microsoft

Papers and workshops will form part of the main conference; posters and demonstrations will be hosted in an adjoining room to the main auditorium and will have a dedicated session as part of the Conference programme. Posters and demonstrations will also be available during refreshment breaks.
