DC-2015 registration is now open

Friday, May 15, 2015

Online registration for DC-2015 is now open at http://dcevents.dublincore.org/IntConf/index/pages/view/reg15. The conference and DCMI Annual Meeting is scheduled for 1-4 September in São Paulo, Brazil. This year's theme is "Metadata and Ubiquitous Access to Culture, Science and Digital Humanities". The need for structured metadata to support ubiquitous access across the Web to the treasure troves of resources spanning cultures, in science, and in the digital humanities is now common knowledge among information systems designers and implementers. Structured metadata expressed through languages of description make it possible for us to 'speak' about the contents of our treasure troves. But, like all human languages, our languages of description both enable and isolate. The push to break out of the isolation of the metadata silos in which professionals inevitably design, implement and manage metadata in order to discover the intersections of our treasure troves drives much of today's discourse and emerging practice in metadata. The meeting in São Paulo is intended to advance the metadata discourse and practice behind this push to intersect.
