This year's conference promises to provide a fascinating look back at how far the field of digital curation has come over the past ten years, as well as food for thought on what the future developments might be.
There are a few UKOLN connections hidden within the programme. Former UKOLN Director Liz Lyon will present a paper that discusses how iSchools are bringing about change in the information profession and equipping a generation of graduates with the necessary skills for research data management and digital curation. Liz also co-authors one of the posters, as does current staff member Alex Ball.
The conference will be held at 30 Euston Square in London, on 9–12 February 2015. Registration closes on 27 January, so for more information on how to register, please visit the IDCC15 Web site.

Registration is now open for the 10th International Digital Curation Conference (IDCC 15).

The fee includes attendance at the conference itself, plus a reception at the Wellcome Collection's Medicine Now Gallery and a place at the Conference Dinner, to be held at the British Library.

The UK Digital Curation Centre (DCC) has issued a Call for Papers for the 10th International Digital Curation Conference (IDCC15). Contributions would be welcome on one of a number topics, in the form of
- research papers;
- extended abstracts for practice papers;
- abstracts for data papers or posters;
- proposals for Birds of a Feather sessions, demonstrations, and workshops.
The DCC was established in 2004 and the first IDCC was held a year later in 2005. This conference therefore represents an opportunity to take stock of how the field of digital curation has developed over the past decade, and where it is now heading. This is reflected in the conference theme: "Ten years back, ten years forward: achievements, lessons and the future for digital curation".
The conference will be held at 30 Euston Square in London, on 9–12 February 2015. For more information, including the full text of the Call for Papers and submission instructions, please visit the IDCC15 Web site.
The 9th International Digital Curation Conference (IDCC14) is fast approaching, and as usual there will be a strong UKOLN presence.
On Monday, 24 February, Manjula Patel and former UKOLN Director Liz Lyon will host a workshop introducing a new tool for profiling a community's capability to perform data-intensive research.
Then, on Wednesday, 26 February, Alex Ball will present two Practice Papers. The first, ‘Show me the data’, concerns a project to set up a pilot research data discovery service for the UK. The second, ‘Building a disciplinary metadata standards directory’, describes the work done so far by the Metadata Standards Directory Working Group of the Research Data Alliance. Both initiatives are collaborations involving the UK Digital Curation Centre.
The conference will be held on 24-27 February 2014 at the Omni San Francisco Hotel, San Francisco. We hope to see you there!
To whet your appetite still further, the DCC is publishing a series of previews from keynote speakers. Early bird registration closes on 5 February, so book now to avoid disappointment.
UKOLN Informatics Director Liz Lyon will chair the first meeting of the CCM (Community Capability Model) Interest Group at the RDA (Research Data Alliance) 2nd Plenary Meeting on 17 September 2013.
The CCM Interest Group builds on the work of the CCMDIR (Community Capability Model for Data-Intensive Research) Project, which has developed a model for identifying capability for and barriers to data-intensive research in various communities. At this meeting, Manjula Patel of UKOLN Informatics will introduce a tool for applying the model to a research discipline. The group will review the tool and plan how it might be used to profile disciplines such as environmental science, astronomy and social science.
The CCM Interest Group meeting will be held on 17 September 2013 at 16:15, in Salon A of the Washington Marriott, Washington, DC, USA.

- proposals for workshops, posters or demonstrations.
The theme for the conference is "Commodity, catalyst or change-agent? Data-driven transformations in research, education, business & society". It will focus on the challenges and opportunities that emerge as the volume and complexity of data increase across all sectors of society.
The conference will be held on 24-27 February 2014 at the Omni San Francisco Hotel, San Francisco. It is organized by the UK Digital Curation Centre in partnership with the the University of California Curation Center (UC3) at the California Digital Library, and the Coalition for Networked Information.
