This came to me via the grapevine today (it looks good):

The ACA at UBC, the University of British Columbia Student Chapter of the Association of Canadian Archivists, is delighted to invite you to its eighth annual Seminar and Symposium, held on February 10-12, 2016 at the University of British Columbia. The theme of this year’s event is “Preserving Liquid Communication,” with a focus on the preservation of informal communications generated in cloud environments through the use of social media. Archivists, records managers, and other information professionals will discuss the nature of social media output, the identification of what should be preserved, methods of preservation and provision of access, and legal issues related to intellectual rights, privacy, right to be forgotten, and more. Speakers will discuss these matters informally with attending professionals, students, and professors at the Seminar on February 10 and 11 (10:00am-4:00pm). The Symposium, featuring formal presentations from speakers, will be held on February 12 (9:00am-5:00pm).

The ACA at UBC is pleased to host eight experts, who will participate in the Seminar and give the following presentations at the Symposium:
· Amelia Acker, University of Pittsburgh: Mobile Records, Social Media, and Recent Trends in Records Destruction
