:: Full Call:
The Metadata Summit in Copenhagen launches DCMI's 3rd decade and provides a forum for looking forward to new challenges and backward at challenges met and challenges unresolved. Every year the DCMI community gathers for both its Annual Meeting and its International Conference on Dublin Core & Metadata Applications. The work agenda of the DCMI community is broad and inclusive of all aspects of innovation in metadata design, implementation, and best practices. While the work of the Initiative progresses throughout the year, the Conference and Annual Meeting provide the opportunity for DCMI "citizens" as well as newcomers, students, apprentices, and early career professionals to gather face-to-face to share knowledge and experience.
The Summit in Copenhagen will provide for public- and private-sector initiatives beyond DCMI that are doing significant metadata work with the opportunity to come together, to compare notes, and to cast a broader light into their particular metadata work silos. Through such a gathering of the metadata communities, DCMI advances its "first goal" of promoting metadata interoperability and harmonization.
Technical Program Submissions:
The Technical Program includes peer-reviewed Papers, Project Reports, and Posters. Submission to the Technical Program will span metadata research, design, and application as a critical core value of effective information systems across domains -- science, humanities, business, government, cultural memory, and the professions. It will explore the domain-crossing intersections of metadata lifecycle documentation, publication, and management. Submissions are welcome that address the challenges of emergent areas of metadata interest including big data and big and smart metadata. The submissions to the Technical Program will be reviewed by an international panel of experts.
Submission Deadline: 13 May 2016
Author Notification: 22 July 2016
Final Copy: 2 September 2016
Professional Program Submissions:
The Professional Program is key to DCMI's education and training objective and includes Tutorials, Workshops, Special Sessions, and Best Practice Posters & Demonstrations. Submissions are reviewed by the Conference Committee in consultation with the DCMI Education Committee. Selections for the Tutorial, Workshops, and Special Sessions will be based on: (a) the immediacy of the submission to current education and training needs of metadata designers, implementers, and practitioners; and (b) the potential of the submission to advance innovation in both the discourse and best practice of metadata. Best Practice Posters & Demonstrations is a non-peer reviewed track that encourages metadata practitioners in memory institutions, galleries, government and the private sector to showcase work demonstrating innovative approaches to metadata best practices. Selections are based on whether a work presents challenging problems in context; and, whether the authors and conference delegates can benefit from poster session interactions.
