Looking back and looking forward

“Media and Content: A Decade of Change” is the first publication in a series related to the EuroDIG topical clusters, along which the sessions and discussions at EuroDIG have been structured. The author, Yrjö Länsipuro,looks back how the discussion on the specific cluster “Media and Content” emerged at EuroDIG, which is by now a bit more than a decade of development. We hope you enjoy the reading, and stay tuned for more publications on the other clusters to be released soon.

You can now register for the EuroDIG Planning Meeting, which takes place on February 4 as a one-day online event (9:30 to 17:00 CET). The public planning meeting is the main opportunity to discuss the programme of the upcoming EuroDIG2021 gathering (to be held June 28-30, 2021). The first draft of session proposals - based on inputs received in an open call for submissions - will be presented, and you will be introduced to the planning process. As we are based on community efforts, we welcome everyone who wants to discuss or listen in. In order to participate you need to sign up for the meeting on the EuroDIG website. We will also provide a stream of the event on our YouTube channel.
