ICE Forum (London 2011)
International Curation Education Forum

Date: Wednesday 29 June, 2011
Location: University College London, The Roberts Building, Torrington Place,
London, WC1E 7JE

**Please reserve the date in your calendar … registration will be available
next week**

The aim of this event will be to provide an international meeting place for
educators, trainers, students and practitioners of digital curation to:
discuss, evaluate, swap knowledge, and potentially improve practice around:

a) effective curricula and course design
b) production of advice and guidance materials (beginner, intermediate and
c) creation and use of textbooks and scholarly material

The principal focus of the day will be on enabling all participants to learn
as much as possible about the latest developments in digital curation
teaching and training. Presentations will be combined with structured
networking, lightning talks and feedback sessions to maximise opportunities
for examining a wide range of approaches.

The event is being subsidised and led by JISC in association with: the
Digital Curation Centre (DCC); the Institute of Library and Museum Services;
the School of Library and Information Science, University of North Carolina
at Chapel Hill; and the Department of Information Studies, University
College London.  The Forum will be an ideal opportunity for a number of
different groups to congregate including: academics; curation training
professionals; digital curators; repository managers; archivists; records
managers; data managers; data librarians; publishers; commercial service
providers; and students. It should be of interest to anyone who attended the
DigCCurr conferences at UNC Chapel Hill (2007 & 2009) and will also build on
the discussions of the IDEA (International Digital Curation Education
Action) Group. The programme is being put together by an international
advisory group and will be announced shortly.

The venue for the forum will be the UCL Roberts Building, a recent addition
to the UCL Bloomsbury campus and home to the University’s engineering
faculty ( The venue is in the heart of the Bloomsbury
university precinct and is convenient for all the cultural and social
delights that Central London has to offer. A registration process is being
setup and will be announced as soon as possible along with the draft
programme.  A small fee will be payable for attendance at the event in order
to offset some of the costs.

Student - £25
University/ public sector staff - £45
Commercial delegates - £65 (sponsorship queries most welcome)
