The submission deadline of 15 May 2016 for proposals to the Professional Program for DC-2016 in Copenhagen will be arriving before we know it. The professional Program includes panel sessions, tutorials and workshops. Panel sessions will be organized by experts in a specific area of metadata and provide a focused exchange of the latest research and/or best practice in the area. Panel sessions are customarily 1-1/2 hours in length. Tutorials on topics of current interest will be 1/2-to-1 day in length and can be addressed at an introductory, intermediate, or expert level. Tutorials are intended to impart knowledge or skills and address identified learning outcomes. Workshops, also 1/2-to-1 day in length, engage participants in active work to address one or more well-defined problems or issues. Most frequently, workshops include both participation in small- to medium-sized groups on either aspects of the subject matter to be addressed and the sharing of outcomes, conclusions drawn, and (sometimes) definition of future work. Proposals in all three Professional Program categories are 1-2 pages in length. For additional instructions for submission see the DC-2016 Call for Proposals page on the conference website at http://dcevents.dublincore.org/index.php/IntConf/dc-2016/schedConf/cfp.
