The Digital Legacy Conference 2018

Press Release (August 2018)


We are spending an increasing amount of our lives online. The sentimental and monetary value of the content we upload, share and purchase is increasing year on year….But what happens to our online world when we die?

The Digital Legacy Conference explores societies attitudes and behaviours around death, dying, bereavement and the internet. This annual conference is ran by the Digital Legacy Association who operate from London. This year’s conference will examine how a variety of professions such as the legal, social care, healthcare and funeral care are changing their practice in order to better support the general public. This year’s conference will share best practice and recent research whilst asking questions about how these areas can improve and evolve.

On the 27th October 2018 the Digital Legacy Conference will take place at Siena College, Albany New York. This will be the first time that the conference has taken place outside of Europe and the Digital Legacy Association are looking forward to working with Siena College’s social care department to address this increasingly important area.

Siena College is a private, co-educational liberal arts college in the Franciscan and Catholic tradition. Siena is committed to offering the Education for a Lifetime for a new generation of leaders eager to create a more just, peaceful and humane world.
