DCMI RDF Application Profile Task Group completes deliverables

2015-08-19, The DCMI RDF-AP aims at defining best practices for documenting application profiles, requests for handling RDF application profiles, and for RDF constraints specification and validation. The first deliverable, Report on Use Cases, reports on the case studies collected in the Task Force, their use cases and their validation requirements. The second deliverable, Report on Validation Requirements, supplements the Report on Use Cases from which the requirements were derived. The full descriptions of case studies and use cases can be found in the task group wiki. Case studies and the corresponding use cases are collected in the DCMI RDF-AP database (see DCMI RDF Application Profiles database on case studies, use cases, requirements, and solutions).

DCMI Bylaws Revisions

2015-08-19, The DCMI Governing Board announces its GB2015-2 decision to revise the DCMI Bylaws. The major focus of the revisions is on the refactoring of roles of the Advisory Board and Directorate with regard to DCMI conferences, meetings, educational programming and Initiative outreach. The revisions are are part of the ongoing fine-tuning of the Bylaws following the major restructuring of DCMI governance in 2014. The revised Bylaws can be found at http://dublincore.org/about/bylaws/index.shtml.

Final Program announced for DC-2015 in São Paulo, Brazil

2015-07-29, São Paulo State University (UNESP) and the Conference Committee of DC-2015 in São Paulo, Brazil on 1-4 September have published the final program of the DCMI International Conference at http://dcevents.dublincore.org/IntConf/index/pages/view/schedule-15. Join us in São Paulo for an exciting agenda including papers, project reports and best practice posters and presentations. Parallel with the peer reviewed program is an array of special sessions of panels and discussions on key metadata issues, challenges and new opportunities. Pre- and post-conference Professional Program workshops round out the program by providing full-day instruction. 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 Annual Meeting and Conference provide the opportunity for DCMI "citizens" as well as students and early career professionals studying and practicing the dark arts of metadata to gather face-to-face to share experiences. In addition, the gathering provides public- and private-sector initiatives beyond DCMI engaged in significant metadata work to come together to compare notes and cast a broader light into their particular metadata domain silos. Through such a gathering of the metadata "clans", DCMI advances its "first goal" of promoting metadata interoperability and harmonization.
