=== 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 and DCMI.
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 Vocabularies, sponsored by the DC-Vocabulary Management Community and DC-Bibliographic Metadata Task Group; and (2) CAMP-4-Data: Cyber-infrastructure and Metadata Protocols, sponsored by DC-Science & Metadata Community (DC-SAM) & the Research Data Alliance (RDA).
