Because good research needs good data

Draft Programme 2

IDCC Conference Banner with background of a scenic view of Edinburgh where the IDCC conference will be held between 19-21 February 2024


Over 80 contributions from all over the world make up our draft programme, that this year has a main theme of Trust Through Transparency. The programme will deliver a variety of talks categorised under several pathways including Managing DMPs and Data Stewards, Curation Processes, Sharing and Discarding and Trust and Transparency: Standards and Sustainability, along with many more.  

The draft programme has now been compiled following a review period in which papers, lightning talks, posters and workshop submissions were evaluated by our programme committee.
