On behalf of the BitCurator Consortium Program Committee, I'm pleased to share some exciting announcements related to the upcoming BitCurator Users Forum 2019: Communities of Practice scheduled to take place October 24-25 at Yale University.

Preliminary Program Live!

We are happy to announce that the preliminary program is now available on the BitCurator Consortium website. Final program details will be available in August 2019. 

The first day of the BitCurator Users Forum 2019 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. Day One will also feature workshops on a range of topics from natural language processing tools, advocating for appraisal, and environmentally sustainable digital preservation, as well as lightning talk round up at the end of the day. The second day will feature a mix of panels,  presentations, and a discussion-based session.
