The University of Melbourne will play host to PARADISEC’s Sustainable Data from Digital Research conference on 12-14th December 2011.
Digital methods for recording information are now ubiquitous. In fieldwork-based disciplines, like linguistics, musicology, anthropology and so on, recordings are typically of high cultural value and there is great benefit in the proper curation of these recordings, to the researcher, to
the community in which they worked, and to the broader society. This conference will address the costs and benefits of these technologies.
