=== DC-2013/iPRES 2013 INVITATION TO REGISTER ===
Registration for DC-2013 --Linking to the Future-- is now open. The
conference will take place 2-6 September 2013 in Lisbon, Portugal. The
conference website: http://purl.org/dcevents/dc-2013.
The DC-2013 conference theme explores questions regarding the persistence,
maintenance, and preservation of metadata and descriptive vocabularies. The
need for stable representations and descriptions spans all sectors
including cultural heritage and scientific data, eGovernment, finance and
commerce. In addition to the theme, presentations and discussion will cover
a broad range of topics on innovation in metadata design and practice.
DC-2013 will be collocated with iPRES-2013. Both conferences will take
place in the same venue and run in parallel. During the collocated events,
delegates are welcome to choose sessions that best fit their interests from
either conference. Keynotes are held in common plenaries; and, social
events are shared, providing a excellent opportunity for DCMI and iPRES
delegates to socialize, share common interests and network. Delegates of
the two conferences may separately register for a mix of pre- and
post-conference events organized by the conference committees of both iPRES
DC-2013 speakers and tutorial leads include: Gildas Illien, Ivan Herman,
Richard Wallis, Steven Miller, Kai Eckert, and Daniel Garijo, among many
others. Full-day workshops include: (1) VocDay 2013: Managing
