Call for ProposalsBitCurator Users Forum 2019: Communities of Practice

The BitCurator Consortium (BCC) invites proposals for the 2019 BitCurator
Users Forum <https://bitcuratorconsortium.org/bitcurator-users-forum-2019>,
to be held October 24-25 at Yale University. An international,
community-led organization with 42 member institutions, the BCC promotes
and supports the application of digital forensics tools and practices in
libraries, archives, museums, and other cultural heritage organizations.

In previous years, the BitCurator Users Forum has focused on sharing
strategies, approaches, and best practices for using digital forensics
tools and methods within processing workflows in archives, libraries, and
museums. While we still encourage proposals in these topic areas, this year
we are seeking to expand the scope and discussions at the 2019 Users Forum
to explore themes and concepts across organizations and fields of practice,
such as collaboration, advocacy, ethics, and other areas. We particularly
welcome participation from organizations and individuals working outside of
academic and special collections libraries, as well as individuals working
outside of the United States. See more details on our Call for Proposals
<https://bitcuratorconsortium.org/buf2019-call-proposals> page.

Please note that the BitCurator Users Forum is open to all. You don't need
to be a BCC member to submit a proposal and/or attend the event.

The first day of the BitCurator Users Forum will feature an introduction to
digital forensics workshop aimed at practitioners who are just getting
started working with digital forensics tools and methods. This workshop
will include an overview of digital forensics concepts, and will mostly
focus on hands-on exercises and activities. Other programming on both days
of the Forum will include a variety of sessions, from to participant-driven
workshops to panel presentations.


Submission Information

Deadlines

Submission Deadline: May 17, 2019

Acceptance Notification: June 14, 2019

Participant-focused session formats

Sessions facilitated by individuals or groups welcome. 60 minutes - 4 hours

Please submit a 250-word (maximum) abstract describing the session format
and topic(s).

The Program Committee particularly encourages participant-focused session
formats that incorporate interactivity. This can include any type of
non-traditional session format, such as peer-to-peer learning sessions,
collaborative working sessions, roundtables, etc.


Presentations

Individual or group submissions welcome. 30 - 60 minutes

Please submit a 250-word (maximum) abstract. If submitting as an solo
speaker, individual panelists may be matched by the BCC Program Committee
based on complementarity of subjects or overarching themes.

We encourage presentations to move beyond the case study and address
pressing issues, best practices, opportunities for collaboration, visions,
and expanded uses for digital forensics in libraries, archives, museums,
and beyond. The Program Committee strongly encourages proposals from
underrepresented groups, and/or those that feature the perspectives of a
variety of roles, organizations, or fields. We particularly welcome
alternative panel formats (pecha kucha, group discussions, or others) that
will facilitate dialogue and enlarge participation.

Lightning Talks

1 presenter, 5-12 minutes

Please submit an abstract of no more than 250 words.

Lightning talks are a great format for case studies, digital forensics
“success stories” or “tragic tales,” and research updates.

Themes

The BCC Program Committee recognizes that the field of digital forensics is
broad and diverse, and accepts proposals that focus on any related topic
from any field. We particularly encourage proposals to consider areas of
interest such as:


   -

   Integration and Collaboration
   -

      How have cross-departmental or intra-institutional projects helped to
      build, teach, or improve digital archives workflows and outcomes?
      -

      Are there examples of tools or systems that have been linked or
      leveraged to improve preservation outcomes? What areas of
opportunity exist
      for future integrations?
      -

      What communities of practice exist around digital archives?
      -

      What challenges and opportunities are involved in cross-disciplinary
      digital archives collaborations?
      -

   Advocacy and Building Capacity
   -

      How are you building capacity through “in-reach” and cross-training?
      -

      How does your work with digital archiving connect to other forms of
      advocacy and organizing?
      -

      What does successful advocacy for digital archives, preservation, and
      forensics look like?
      -

      How can we better demonstrate the value of digital archives and
      digital forensic work?
      -

      How can staff at small or underfunded organizations advocate for the
      time, tools, and expertise to conduct digital archives work?



   -

   People and Policy
   -

      What training curricula exist for working with digital archives and
      forensics? Are existing options sufficient?
      -

      How do people come to work with digital archives, preservation, and
      forensics? What skills from past experience have proven valuable?
      -

      How do digital archivists learn on the job?
      -

      What policies impact the experiences of digital archives workers?
      -

      How can we balance the need to maintain existing infrastructure with
      innovation and responding to new technologies?



   -

   Ethics
   -

      How do privacy and security, donor relations, institutional risk
      tolerance, and other ethical issues affect your work with
digital archives?
      -

      How do we address the fact that doing one’s work often means relying
      on tools and techniques that were originally developed for the law
      enforcement community?
      -

      How do we address the environmental impact of large digital archives
      while managing researcher’s expectations of immediate/online access to
      digital materials?
