The BitCurator Consortium (BCC) is very excited to announce that the 2018 BitCurator Users Forum will be held September 13-14, 2018, on the campus of BCC member University of California, Los Angeles. We are delighted to be hosting the BitCurator Users Forum on the west coast and look forward to organizing a stimulating and engaging event! Further details regarding registration logistics and a call for proposals will be issued in March 2018. In an effort to make the Forum accessible to as many people as possible, the BCC is committed to ensuring the registration fees associated with the forum are reasonable. Program details, registration, and lodging information will soon be available here.
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.
