The Forum aims to discuss topics such as digitization of originals, structured digital descriptions, ‘born digital’ materials as the cultural heritage of tomorrow, digital cultural heritage as primary research data for cooperative research, skill development etc.
Also, it will serve as an exchange space for best practices and ideas, to encourage each practitioner in their daily concerns, and finally to support each other in common approaches, to develop vibrant networks, and meaningful collaboration.
The Forum co-organised the 3rd LIBER workshop on Digital Curation, 'Approaches to preserving born-digital materials' to be held in Vienna on 19-20 May 2014, in the Kleiner Festsaal, University of Vienna For more information see the Conference website.
