2017 BitCurator User Forum Registration Now Open! 
We are pleased to announce that registration for the 2017 BitCurator User Forum, taking place April 27-28 at Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois, has officially opened! We invite archivists, librarians, museum, and other information professionals engaged in (or considering) digital forensics methods and tools to acquire, better understand, and make available born-digital materials to attend. 

The 2017 forum will take place over two days, providing even more opportunities for community members and users to engage and learn from each other. It 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 used in digital analysis and curation.

The event is open to all and advance registration is required. Registration fees (Members $50, Students $65, Non-members $100) include lunch, refreshments, and a reception on April 27.
