BitCurator Users Forum 2019 – Call for Proposals

BitCurator Consortium | BitCurator Consortium

The BitCurator Consortium (BCC) invites proposals for the 2019 BitCurator Users Forum, to be held October 24-25, at Yale University. An international, community-led organization with 42 member institutions, the BCC promotes and supports the application of digital forensics tools and practices in libraries, archives, museums, and other cultural heritage organizations.

In previous years, the BitCurator Users Forum has focused on sharing strategies, approaches, and best practices for using digital forensics tools and methods within processing workflows in archives, libraries, and museums. While we still encourage proposals in these topic areas, this year we are seeking to expand the scope and discussions at the 2019 Users Forum to explore themes and concepts across organizations and fields of practice, such as collaboration, advocacy, ethics, and other areas. We particularly welcome participation from organizations and individuals working outside of academic and special collections libraries, as well as individuals working outside of the United States.

Please note that the BitCurator Users Forum is open to all. You don’t need to be a BCC member to submit a proposal and/or attend the event.

The first day of the BitCurator Users Forum will feature an introduction to digital forensics workshop aimed at practitioners who are just getting started working with digital forensics tools and methods. This workshop will include an overview of digital forensics concepts, and will mostly focus on hands-on exercises and activities. Other programming on both days of the Forum will include a variety of sessions, from lightning talks to participant-driven workshops to panel presentations.
