The submission deadline has been EXTENDED TO 5 APRIL 2013 for papers, project reports, and posters for DC-2013 in Lisbon.
Conference Dates: 2-6 September 2013
The DC-2013 conference theme is "Linking to the Future":
"DC-2013 will explore 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. Thus, the maintenance and management of metadata is essential to address the long term availability of information of legal, cultural and economic value. On the web, data -- and especially descriptive vocabularies -- can change or vanish from one moment to the next. Nonetheless, the web increasingly forms the ecosystem for our vocabularies and our data. DC-2013 will bring together in Lisbon the community of metadata scholars and practitioners to engage in the exchange of knowledge and best practices in developing a sustainable metadata ecosystem."
Beyond the conference theme, DCMI welcomes submissions of papers, project reports and posters addressing the broad array of topics impacting metadata research, design, and practice in domain and cross-domain contexts. Such contexts include, but are not limited to, corporations, cultural memory institutions, education, government, scientific fields, recordkeeping, preservation, curation, institutional repositories, and publishing.
DC-2013 in Lisbon will be collocated, and run simultaneously with, iPRES-2013 offering delegates the opportunity to attend sessions of both conferences and to build bridges between these synergistic groups. "Linking to the Future" demands attention to preservation and linkages to the past.
