Many academic disciplines depend on analysis of primary data captured 
during fieldwork. Increasingly, researchers today are using digital 
methods for the whole life cycle of their primary data, from capture 
to organisation, submission to a repository or archive, and later 
access and dissemination in publications, teaching resources and 
conference presentations. This conference and workshop will showcase 
a number of projects that have been developing innovative and 
sustainable ways of managing such data.

The conference will be in three parts: Academic papers on the theme 
"Fieldwork: from creation to archive and back"; demonstrations of 
tools and platforms for submitting and disseminating digital 
ethnographic material; and a hands-on workshop to introduce 
researchers to relevant recommended tools.
