Final Program announced for DC-2015 in Sao Paulo, Brazil
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.
