DCMI invites sponsors of Next Generation Metadata Specialists

At DC-2014, DCMI will convene a group of graduate students, particularly master's in professional programs, and early career professionals as part of DCMI's efforts to support the next generation of metadata specialists in developing their knowledge, skills, and mastery of best practices. In addition to engaging in 1-on-1 and group interactions with leading researchers, consultants, and practitioners shaping the metadata ecosystem, there will be a Special Session designed specifically for them where they will gain an understanding of how the discourse and practice of metadata is evolving and how today's innovations are changing for better metadata modeling, design, and implementation. The students' schools and employing institutions sponsor attendance, establish their own criteria for selection, and determine the level of support to be provided.
