BitCurator Users Forum 2018

Living on the Edge: Extending Digital Forensics into New Sectors

The BitCurator Consortium (BCC) invites proposals for the 2018 BitCurator
Users Forum <https://bitcuratorconsortium.org/buf2018>, to be held
September 13-14 at the University of California, Los Angeles. An
international, community-led organization with 27 member institutions, the
BCC promotes and supports the application of digital forensics tools and
practices in libraries, archives, museums, and other cultural heritage
organizations.

As cultural heritage institutions borrow and adapt forensic techniques from
criminal investigation, repurposing these context-specific forensic tools
raises new questions and possibilities for engaging with born-digital
materials. We want to hear your experiences and visions of how digital
forensics affects your work. In previous BitCurator Users Forums we have
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 on digital forensics to new areas including, but not limited to
personal digital archiving, digital humanities research, and data privacy.
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.

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. For attendees looking to dive a
little deeper into specific topics or issues, day one will also feature a
“Let’s-Do-This-a-thon”--a collaborative working session for which we are
seeking suggestions of topics, hare-brained project ideas, problems,
issues, etc. We invite submissions in advance (more details below) but will
provide time at the beginning of day one for attendees to self-organize
around topics and interests. The second day will include a mix of panels,
presentations, and lightning talks.

We invite proposals for the following session formats:


   -

   “Let’s-do-this-a-thon” working sessions
   -

   Presentations
   -

   Panels
   -

   Lightning Talks



Submission Information

“Let’s-do-this-a-thon” sessions

Inspired by OpenCon’s Do-A-Thon <http://doathon.opencon2017.org/>, we are
organizing activities on day one around this model of quickly forming small
groups to start getting things done. We welcome submissions on a wide range
of topics, problems/challenges, project ideas, workflow issues, theoretical
musings, etc. These sessions do not have to be technical in nature / focus,
and could include topics such as:

   -

   sharing best practices on description of born-digital materials
   -

   outreach and advocacy
   -

   training strategies for public services staff
   -

   tools / scripts that you want to start building
   -

   works-in-progress you’d like to get feedback on


Presentations

1 - 2 presenters, 45 - 60 minutes

Please submit an abstract of no more than 250 words.

This format is intended for one or two speakers presenting a single
perspective, piece of research, or practical investigation. 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, and museums.

Panels

Individual or group submissions welcome. 3 - 5 presenters, 60 - 75 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 panels to represent a range of professional backgrounds and
experience. Proposals that include diverse perspectives (i.e., faculty,
students, researchers, community members, archivists, and/or multiple
institutions) are strongly encouraged. Alternative panel formats (pecha
kucha, lightning talks followed by small group discussions, or others) that
will facilitate dialogue and enlarge participation are also invited.

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.


Other session formats are welcome, especially sessions that incorporate
interactivity and audience participation.

Topics

We invite presentations that address any topic related to digital
forensics. Topics of particular interest include:


   -

   case studies: specific applications of digital forensics in a variety of
   domains - architecture, design, art, manuscripts, organizational records,
   museum collections, corporate archives, digital humanities, investigative
   journalism, personal digital archiving, to name some examples - and with
   different types of materials, such as records, manuscripts, digital art, or
   research data
   -

   access to born-digital materials: how are organizations providing
   access? What description, software, hardware, and policies are used?
   -

   training: teaching and learning in digital preservation, forensics, and
   archives, including advocacy, “in-reach,” and cross-training across roles
   within organizations
   -

   ethical concerns: how privacy and security, donor relations,
   institutional risk tolerance, and other ethical issues affect forensic
   analysis
   -

   tool integrations: developing workflows that connect multiple digital
   curation systems
   -

   process automation: use of scripting and related methods to support
   efficiency


Review

The BCC Program Committee will review and accept abstracts based on their
relevance to the conference theme and audience; the clarity of description;
and their potential for inspiring discussion, collaboration, and
innovation.

Deadlines

Submission Deadline: April 20, 2018

Acceptance Notification: May 18, 2018

Eligibility & Requirements

We welcome proposals from archivists, librarians, digital forensics
