Papers are invited for the Ninth International Conference on Dublin Core and Metadata Applications (DC-2009). This year, DC-2009 will be held in Seoul, Korea, from October 12th to 16th. This year’s theme is "Semantic Interoperability of Linked Data.”
will focus on linked data and the enabling of the Semantic Web. Conference
participants will explore the conceptual and practical issues in breaking the
constraints of data silos and connecting pieces of data, information, and
knowledge. Metadata is a key to these processes supporting publishing and
interlinking structured data on the Semantic Web.
The basic assumption behind the concept of linked data is that the value and usefulness of data increases the more it is interlinked with other data. There is a growing interest in the metadata community in connecting existing and future data contained in silos within and across organizations in a meaningful way that supports extraction and correlation of the data. The linking of data from disparate data silos presents technical and social challenges that will be explored at DC-2009 through full papers, project reports, posters, special sessions and workshops.
Beyond the conference theme, papers, reports, and poster submissions are welcome on a wide range of metadata topics, such as:
full paper, project report and poster submissions to the DC-2009 Conference
Proceedings will be peer-reviewed by the International Program Committee. All submissions must be in English. Accepted

versions of the Conference Proceedings.
The Committee is soliciting contributions of the following three types:
FULL PAPERS (8-10 pages)

Project reports describe a specific model, application, or activity in a concise, prescribed format. Project reports will be assessed using the following criteria:
Accepted papers and projects will be published in both the official electronic and the paper versions of the Proceedings. Accepted project reports must be presented in Seoul by at least one of their authors.
POSTERS (1-2 pages)
Posters are for the presentation of projects or research under development or late-breaking results. Poster proposals should consist of a one-two page extended abstract. Posters will be assessed using the following criteria:
Accepted posters will be published in the Conference Proceedings and displayed at the conference. Accepted posters must be presented in Seoul by at least one of their authors.
Authors wishing to submit
papers, reports, or poster proposals may do so through the DCMI Peer Review System at http://dcpapers.dublincore.org/index.php/pubs/.
Author registration and instruction for the submission process appear under the
