The recently closed call for contributions has been a success! Sixteen papers and fourteen posters have been selected. The conference programme is now even richer and includes keynote lectures, presentations of the DigCurV results, talks and posters around the topics of the conference. A special session will be dedicated to the Curate! The Digital Curator Game, that has already excited many digital curation practitioners. Check out the programme here: http://www.digcur-education.org/eng/International-Conference/Programme

The objective of the conference is to promote discussion and consensus building amongst stakeholders about the main criteria and requirements necessary to develop training courses for professionals in digital curation in the cultural heritage sector.  Results from projects and initiatives actively involved in education, training and professional development in the field of digital curation and digital preservation will be presented and discussed.

The audience will include policy makers, educators, representatives from institutions involved in vocational training in digital curation, and representatives from professional associations in the cultural heritage and digital libraries sectors.
