The second Digital Curation Curriculum (DigCCurr) symposium will be 
held April 1-3, 2009 in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA. We have 
received many outstanding paper submissions for the conference, coming 
from the academic, private-sector and public-sector in a dozen 
different countries. In order to provide further opportunity for 
sharing of ideas and innovation, we are extending the deadline for one 
specific type of submission - Contributed Posters - to Monday, November 
3, 2008.

Posters are a terrific way to highlight new and promising initiatives, 
preliminary results of research projects, and professional best 
practices. We particularly encourage students and new professionals to 
take advantage of this opportunity share your work with a unique and 
highly influential audience of professionals from around the world. The 
first symposium, DigCCurr2007, attracting nearly 300 attendees from ten 
countries, and featured contributions from many of the world's leading 
experts in digital curation (see 

Poster submissions involve writing a 1-2 page paper that describes 
current work in progress, a design and methodology for a future study, 
situational case study, system model, course outline, or some other 
creative piece that relates to an aspect of digital curation. 
Submissions will undergo peer review, and for those that are accepted, 
the 1-2 page paper will be included in a published proceedings. There 
will be a poster session at the conference where you can expect to 
receive constructive feedback and suggestions from other attendees.

This event provides a unique opportunity for researchers, 
practitioners, faculty and students from around the world to come 
together for an immersion in all facets of digital curation - digital 
repositories, data management, preservation and migration of digital 
content across its life span, institutional repositories, distributed 
data networks, standards, and more.

DigCCurr 2009 will be an excellent opportunity to personally interact 
with both established and emerging leaders in the arena of digital 
curation. The conference proceedings also provide a great publication 
venue for innovative work.
