Washington, États-Unis

DCMI has published the Call for Participation for the DC-2017 International Conference on Dublin Core and Metadata Applications to be held in Washington, D.C., USA, October 26-29, 2017. The conference will be collocated with the ASIS&T Annual Meeting.

Call for participation

Following up on DC-2016 in Copenhagen, with its look towards the changing role of metadata in the Second Machine Age, this year’s conference will focus on technologies and practices that are advancing how we can create and manage good metadata. Interoperability and openness have been guiding principles of the DCMI community for over twenty years, and these principles have evolved through the development of Semantic Web standards and Linked Open Data. A deluge of new data sources is magnifying the perennial challenge of metadata quality but also inspiring the development of innovative tools, practices, and solutions, the focus of this year’s conference
