About the Forum

The BitCurator Users Forum brings together representatives from libraries,
archives, museums, and related information professions engaged in (or
considering) digital forensics work to acquire, better understand, and make
available born-digital materials. The two-day forum 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 for use in digital analysis and curation.
