"Ten years back, ten years foward: achievements, lessons and the future for digital curation."
For a decade IDCC has bought together leaders and experts in digital curation and the significance of good curation to research and innovation is now well recognised across the globe. At IDCC15 we aim to assess our progess and to help identify and stimulate debate on the critical digital curation questions for the future. The 10th International Digital Curation Conference will be held from Monday 9 February to Thursday 12 February 2015 at 30 Euston Square, London. The main conference will take place over the first two days followed by 2 days of workshops and other satellite events.

Programkommittén för Mötesplats Open Access bjuder in att anmäla bidrag och presentationer kring arbete med open access. På Mötesplats Open Access 2015 öppnar vi upp för samtal om olika publiceringsformer för tillgängliggörande av forskning. Vi utgår från open access av vetenskapliga artiklar och fördjupar oss i hantering av data, OA-utgivning av monografier och även nya publiceringsformer. Vad betyder open access inom olika ämnen och hur skapar man bäst förutsättningar för open access grundade i forskarnas arbete? Open access handlar dessutom inte enbart om kommunikation mellan forskare utan minst lika mycket om kommunikation med det omgivande samhället. Forskning sprids i nya former (eller på nya sätt) och till nya målgrupper. Hur kan forskningsbibliotekens roller och funktioner utvecklas i dessa sammanhang?
Vi välkomnar nu bidrag bland annat inom temaområdena:
· Forskarstöd - relationen forskare-bibliotek i publiceringsprocessen
· Spridning till andra grupper i samhället - allmänhetens förståelse av vetenskap, samverkan, medier etc.
· Genomslag - sociala medier, altmetrics, etc.
· Open access till data, monografier och nya publiceringsformer
Insända bidrag kommer att bedömas av programkommittén och godkända bidrag ges möjlighet att presenteras antingen ett föredrag om 20 minuter eller som en kort femminuterspresentation, kompletterad med en poster i konferensens open space-session. Skicka rubrik och en kort beskrivning på cirka tio rader till ilona.johansson[at] kb.se senast den 16 januari 2015.
Keynotes blir Caroline Edwards (University of London och Open Library of Humanities) som kommer att tala om megatidskrifter inom humaniora och Sarah Callaghan (Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, UK, Research Data Alliance’s working group on Bibliometrics for data och Publishing Data Interest Group ) som kommer att tala om forskningsdata.

The 1st Annual conference on
Digital Preservation for the Arts, Social Sciences and Humanities
“Shaping our Legacy: Safeguarding the Social and Cultural Record”
hosted by the Digital Repository of Ireland
25-26th June 2015
On the last day of June of 1922, the western block of Dublin’s Four Courts exploded, engulfing the Irish Public Record Office in flames. As smoke billowed from the eighteenth-century construction and the fire brigade struggled to bring the flames under control, debris fell onto the surrounding Dublin streets, and the Irish Times reported that a priceless library was left in ashes. The fire, caused by the outbreak of the Irish Civil War, hit at the heart of government records, destroying hundreds of years of Irish history that had been housed centrally since the 18th century. A few days after the fire, the Provisional Government issued a notice asking citizens to return to public custody any and all of the burned fragments of the public record that had “blown to other districts.”
In the current digital age, our social and cultural record is also at risk, but its degradation occurs over time. Instead of burning rapidly, digital records are threatened by a slow-burning fire that can go undetected as a result of insufficient data management practices. Additionally, the preservation of our digital social and cultural heritage is subject to domain- and community-specific requirements. These issues demand that we reflect critically on the purpose of digital preservation, and ask fundamental questions about how requirements should shape our practices. Similar to the public appeal in 1922, we are looking for public, academic and industry engagement on the issue of digital preservation, to help identify the fragments that have been, or are in danger of being lost, as well as to build the digital preservation strategies that will shape and safeguard our public record.
To address the complexities of long-term digital preservation in the social and cultural realms, we are hosting the first Digital Preservation for the Arts, Social Sciences and Humanities (DPASSH 2015) conference, titled “Shaping our Legacy: Safeguarding our Social and Cultural Record.” The conference will take place on June 25-26, 2015 at Croke Park, in Dublin, Ireland, and will include international keynote speakers, networking, expert panels, peer-reviewed papers, and posters.
Submissions are invited from all sectors and perspectives (academics, researchers, students, industry, cultural heritage institutions, preservation infrastructures, etc.) for a variety of presentation formats that critically reflect on all areas relating to digital preservation in the humanities and social sciences, arts, and cultural heritage sectors.
Conference themes include but are not limited to:
• Cultural Responsibility & Preservation: critical reflections on preservation, challenges in choosing what to preserve, digital curation, digital stewardship, archiving processes.
• People & Preservation: stakeholder engagement, community approaches, partnership building, education & training, knowledge transfer.
• Policy & Preservation: advocacy, national approaches, sustainability, open access, open data.
