Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water….

It’s been nearly a year since the end of the project and we’ve not been idle. 4C outputs have been popping up all over the shop—we’re even on the curriculum in some places—and the curation costs exchange ( is seeing an increasing number of visitors.

But that’s not the reason for this post. I’m here to tell you that 4C is hitting the conference trail again. We’re attending IDCC 2016 in Amsterdam where we will be presenting a workshop about customising the costs of curation. We’re also taking the opportunity to revisit (and potentially update) the 4C Roadmap—things have changed over the last 12 months so no doubt tweaks will be required.

The workshop will start with an introduction that will very briefly set out the original aims and scope of the work. We’re then going to focus on some of the core 4C outputs (the Curation Costs Tool, the Digital Curation Sustainability Model and the Roadmap). We’ll be eliciting views from IDCC delegates on whether and how the resources are currently relevant for their work; and/or how they might usefully be adapted or further developed; and/or potential new directions and approaches that might prove beneficial to the community.

The workshop will employ a mixture of presentation, use case discussion and delegate input via breakout groups and feedback.
