The 12th International Digital Curation Conference (IDCC17) took place on 20-23 February 2017 at the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh, Scotland, with the purpose of bringing together digital curation professionals and educators with data producers and consumers to consider digital curation in a multi-disciplinary context.With the theme "Upstream, Downstream: embedding digital curation workflows for data science, scholarship and society", the programme included workshops 20 February and 23 February and the main conference from 21 to 22 February 2017.
IDCC is a leading conference on digital curation and Research Data Management, regularly attracting delegates from across Europe, the USA and Australia. This year's programme focused on the challenge of embedding digital curation in organisational workflows to ensure that not only is data findable, accessible, interoperable and reusable (FAIR), but that we have flexible and resilient infrastructures openly available to support communities in this endeavour.
EUDAT organised a workshop on "How EUDAT services support FAIR data" during the conference.

The conference fee was reduced this year and covered attendance on Tuesday 21 and Wednesday 22 February, as well as related events including the Pre-Conference Drinks Reception in the Playfair Library and the Conference Dinner at The Caves. Further details and a preliminary programme are available on the conference website. Registrations to the events are closed.
