The Dublin Core community has been a fertile ground for researchers, educators, practitioners and developers to exchange and share ideas, knowledge, experience, and innovative projects on metadata for more than two decades. The role of metadata has never been more critical than today. In a data-intensive, data-dependent, and data-driven culture, metadata has become one of the underpinning dimensions for the digital data era. Fashionable fields such as linked (open) data, research data, new artificial intelligence, machine learning, digital humanities and open science are dependent upon quality metadata to operate and perform effectively. Besides supporting information and data management, discovery, sharing, conservation, and reuse, metadata has become an invaluable source for analytics and knowledge discovery. The parallel growth of data and metadata offers new challenges and opportunities for the metadata community to rethink and reposition metadata research and practice in order to stay ahead of the next wave of developments in data-driven environments and cultures. This year the DC2019 conference expands its themes to the whole spectrum of innovation in metadata design, implementation & best practices, with a special focus on challenges and opportunities in the data-intensive world.
Since the late 1990s, the Dublin Core conference has been a major venue for discussions on where innovation opportunities for metadata might lie and where existing good practices may be consolidated. The conferences have drawn participants not only from universities, research institutions and LAMs (libraries, archives, and museums), but also from corporations and government agencies. Continuing the legacy of the Dublin Core conferences from the last two decades, the DC2019 conference seeks inspirational submissions on developments of innovative tools, practices, and solutions, while addressing theoretical, analytical, and empirical aspects of metadata.
Submissions in form of papers, reports, presentations, and posters, panels, tutorials, workshops and demonstrations are welcome in the following broad categories of metadata design, deployment and best practices:
Full papers either describe innovative work in detail or provide critical, well-referenced overviews of key developments or good practices.
Short papers are narrower in scope than full papers and may be either a description of work in progress, or a 'project report' concisely describing a specific model, application, or activity.
Posters are for the presentation of projects, research under development or late-breaking results.
Panel sessions are organized by experts in a specific area of metadata. Each panel serves as a focused exchange regarding the latest research and/or best practice in the area.
Workshops engage participants in active work to address one or more well-defined problems or issues. The style of workshops may vary depending on the organizers, and may include presentation/discussion-based or problem-solving-based activities.
Tutorials introduce specific topics of current interest in metadata practice, optionally including hands-on practice. Proposals for tutorials must include:
