CFP: 14th International Digital Curation Conference: Collaborations and Partnerships: addressing the big digital challenges together (Australia February 2019)

Collaborations and Partnerships: addressing the big digital challenges together

14th International Digital Curation Conference, 4-7 February 2019, Melbourne, Australia

We're delighted to announce that submissions for IDCC 2019 are now open and we are ready to receive your papers via conftool.

We have partnered with the University of Melbourne to take IDCC to Australia for the first time and, in this context, the theme of the conference will be collaborations and partnerships.

We have also refreshed the programme. As well as the usual poster, demo and workshop submissions, we are introducing lightning talks and have merged the research and practice paper strands.

Proposers of lightning talks are invited to submit a 1-page abstract (approximately 500 words) to give a 10-minute talk at the conference. Paper proposers are required to submit a 5-page extended abstract. If your abstract is accepted, you will be invited to give a 20-minute presentation at IDCC and will be entered into an award for the best paper. You are also invited to write-up your paper in full for publication in the International Journal of Digital Curation (IJDC), either as a peer-reviewed or general article. Please follow the link below to get full details of the submission process.

  • Paper submissions and lightning talks close on 18th June 2018.
  • Demos and workshop submissions close on 31st July 2018
  • Poster submissions close on 30th September 2018

The central focus of IDCC 2019 is to examine collaborations and partnerships in the field of digital curation and preservation. Submissions should address one of the topics below:
- Grand curation challenges
- Building diverse and inclusive communities
- Examples and models
- Good foundations for working together

There are just 6 weeks until the first submission deadlines so get busy writing!

Best wishes,

On behalf of the IDCC Programme Committee
