Description

Introduction

The 4C (Collaboration to Clarify the Costs of Curation) Project and the DPC (Digital Preservation Coalition) invite you to join them for a two day conference exploring the long term value and sustainability of digital objects.

The 4C Project is an EC-funded initiative that is helping organisations across Europe to invest more effectively in digital curation and preservation. Research in digital preservation and curation has tended to emphasize the cost and complexity of the task in hand. 4C reminds us that the point of this investment is to realise a benefit, so our research must encompass related concepts such as ‘risk’, ‘value’, ‘quality’ and ‘sustainability’. In this major international conference the project will present its major findings and invite a distinguished panel of experts to review and consider the implications of their work. 

Working jointly with the membership of the DPC, the conference will compare the strategic economic aspirations of funders and policy makers against the practical experience of digital preservation, including perspectives from practitioners, vendors and users of digit preservation services.  It will identify emerging best practice and will provide a forum for needs and practical requirements to be articulated. 

Participants will be invited to review key 4C Project deliverables, considering the implications of these resources and providing the opportunity to shape these to suit community needs before they are submitted to the European Commission.  In particular participants will have a final chance to influence the soon to be published Digital Curation Roadmap.
