The BitCurator Consortium (BCC) is very excited to announce that the 2019 BitCurator Users Forum will be held October 24-25, on the campus of BCC member Yale University. We are very excited to be bringing the BitCurator Users Forum to the Northeast and look forward to putting together an interactive, fun, and engaging event!

Please note that registration and attendance to the BitCurator Users Forum is open to all, including non-BCC members.

About the Forum

The BitCurator Users Forum brings together representatives from libraries, archives, museums, and related information professions engaged in (or considering) digital forensics work to acquire, better understand, and make available born-digital materials. The two-day forum will balance discussion of theory and practice of digital forensics and related digital analysis workflows with hands-on activities for users at all levels of experience with the BitCurator environment, digital forensics methods in general, and other tools for use in digital analysis and curation.
