The 13th International Digital Curation Conference (IDCC) will take place
in Barcelona on 19-22nd February 2018. The call for papers is out now and
we encourage you to submit work on relevant digital curation, preservation
and research data management initiatives.


*Beyond FAIR - from principles to practice to global join up*

The need to manage and share digital outputs and data has been clearly
articulated and gained international traction over the past decade or more.
Effective data handling skills and curation services are essential to
support and embed these practices. Much progress has been made towards
implementation with services being provided by research institutions,
funders, domain groups, commercial providers and others. As the landscape
matures, attention is turning to coordination and interoperability, with
investments being made in the NIH Commons initiative, the European Open
Science Cloud and African Open Science Platform. This evolution poses many
difficult questions: Who is responsible for what? What do principles like
FAIR mean in reality and how should they be assessed? How do you join up or
ensure interoperability across existing and emerging infrastructure and
services? Where does the investment come from and how do we make this

The focus of IDCC in 2018 is sharing practical lessons on the efforts made
so far to curate data and pursue a digital data commons. Papers should
address one of three overarching themes:

·         *Data*: We want to hear from different communities on data
processing pipelines - what works and where do tools fail you? How
realistic is it to use other people’s data? And what challenges emerge from
the current policies and drivers for openness?
·         *Skills and services*: Lessons from those supporting data and
digital collections are also called for. What programmes have you been
running to share skills and build capacity? To what extent are you
tailoring provision to different domains? How are the services on offer
maturing and evolving?
·         *Value*: In terms of impact and sustainability, we want to know
what value is being generated for society by sharing and reusing data? What
models are emerging to demonstrate the impact of services. And how are
services being sustained?

The deadline for paper submissions is Monday 23rd October and for workshops
Monday 30th October.
