BitCurator Users Forum 2020

October 13-16, 2020
Virtual Conference

The BitCurator Consortium (BCC) is very excited to announce that the 2020 BitCurator Users Forum will now be held virtually on October 13-16, 2020. Although the Forum was originally scheduled to be held on the campus of Arizona State University—a member of the BCC through the Arizona Universities Library Consortium—the Program Committee decided to make the move to a virtual event in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. We look forward to organizing a lively and engaging online event!

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

Further details regarding registration as well as the complete program will be issued in July 2020.

Location: Online (details forthcoming)

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.
