Annual Conference July 2014: Research and Scientific Archives, Université Paris Diderot et Sciences-Po

For the first time the annual conference of the Section on University and Research Institution Archives of the International Council on Archives (ICA-SUV) will be held in France in July 2014.

The conference will focus on research and scientific archives and how to collect, file, appraise and value research papers and scientific data. These records are vital to laboratories, researchers and institutions. Although some laboratories and research institutions understand and apply good filing processes, they might still not think of preserving certain materials and data permanently, beyond publishing research results. Questions to be explored may include: solid partnership between archivists and scientists, researchers, and laboratories; how to deal with huge datasets coming e.g. from astronomical observations, physics and mathematic computer simulations or medical databases; and how to preserve collaborative international scientific projects.
