Each of the past 20 years, the metadata community has gathered for DCMI's
conference and annual meeting. 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 newcomers, students,
apprentices, and early career professionals to gather face-to-face to share
experiences and knowledge. In addition, the gathering provides public- and
private-sector initiatives beyond DCMI that are doing significant metadata
work to come together to compare notes and cast a broader light into their
particular metadata work silos. Through such a gathering of the metadata
communities, DCMI advances its "first goal" of promoting metadata
interoperability and harmonization. This year, the annual meeting and
conference are being hosted by the Universidade Estadual Paulista--São
Paulo State University (UNESP) and held in São Paulo, Brazil.
