ANNOUNCEMENT: BitCurator Users Forum remote presentation | extended deadline
BitCurator Consortium | BitCurator Consortium
The Program Committee is excited to announce that we are now accepting proposals for remote conference presentations. We think that providing this option will increase participation and lead to a fuller, more engaging program. Perhaps most importantly, making participation in the Forum open to people with limited or no travel funds will increase equity. Unfortunately, we expect reduced travel budgets to be a reality for many potential participants this year, but it is always an issue for current students, new graduates, and those at smaller and/or under-resourced institutions. Planning for this from the outset will prepare us in the event that we have to shift the Forum to an entirely virtual format. As in previous years, presentations will be streamed online free of cost.
The Program Committee intends to share a decision about whether to proceed in-person or online no later than August 4th.
The BitCurator Users Forum is open to all. You do not need to be a BCC member or user to submit a proposal and/or attend the event.
The submission deadline has been extended to May 8, 2020.
