The 18th edition of the International Digital Curation Conference (IDCC24) will take place in Edinburgh, Scotland between 19-21 February 2024. The main theme of IDCC this year will be Trust through Transparency taken from every vantage point of our communities. As in previous years, IDCC is organised by the Digital Curation Centre with the support of the Coalition for Network Information.
One of the (many) concerns of this age is the ability to trust information around us, especially as we enter a new era of Artificial Intelligence, where what you see cannot always be believed. Transparency is one way to promote trust, by being clear about what we do, and why we do it. This is true whether you are the researcher creating data, the repository that curates that data, or a reuser of the deposited data.
Open Science promotes transparency in how data are collected, verified, and used, in order that we can trust findings built on them.
FAIR-IMPACT at the event
FAIR-IMPACT is organising several workshops, all on 19th February 2024:
- "FAIR-by-Design: introducing Skills4EOSC and FAIR-IMPACT resources and support"
- "Guidelines on transparent exposure of repository information: informing decisions on trustworthiness"
- "Defining criteria for assessing PID Policies and Services", jointly with FAIRCore4EOSC project.
On 21st February, the FAIR-IMPACT Implementation Workshops will be mentioned during the lightning talk entitled "Scaling output tracking through persistent connections", organised by the FAIR Workflows project. It will be focused on general guidance for various stakeholder groups to engage in the adoption of persistent identifiers and relevant workflows to enable FAIR research, particularly relevant for the funders, the reliable tracing of research outputs and impact.
