About IDCC22

IDCC22 will be a virtual event focussing on the theme of Reusability. The programme tackles a broad range of topics in data reuse, including:

  • Balancing reusability between wide and narrow audiences - techniques, costs, workflows
  • Evolution in tools and workflows for enabling reuse
  • What does curating for reuse mean when considering collections of software, workflows, virtual worlds and other types of content?
  • How might we realise the visions espoused by researchers such as Barend Mons about network-enabled machine learning distributed software interacting with data repositories?
  • Relationships between Open Data, Citizen Science, Scholarship and Digital Curation as enabler of societal engagement in science, arts and humanities.
  • Reuse strategies for environmental sustainability in digital curation

An outline of the draft programme is available at https://www.dcc.ac.uk/idcc22/programme.

The main conference will include keynote lectures and presentations on the latest work in the field. and there will also be hosted workshops.
