innovation in metadata design, implementation & best practice

Sponsoring DCMI 2019

DCMI, in partnership with the National Library of Korea, is proud to hold its 19th Annual Conference. This year's theme is "metadata innovation".

In addition to the conference-proper (papers, panels and posters) we will host workshops and tutorials, as well as three extra events:

  • Doctoral Forum: a venue for doctoral students from around the world to discuss their dissertation research projects with invited senior researchers and other participating students.
  • Best Practice Day: a day-long meeting with presentations from institutions that have implemented sound and innovative metadata systems, so that they share their experiences and insights with the DCMI community.
  • Hack day: to provide an informal space for playing with new technologies, brainstorming new ideas, forming new collaborations, or simply sharing work, with a focus on Application Profiles, FAIR data principles, Wikidata, and Wikibase.

We invite you to partner with us for the event which will take place in Seoul, from 23rd - 26th September, 2019.

Who will attend?

The DCMI Annual Conference brings together a unique mixture of metadata experts, including information management professionals, teachers, students, researchers and developers. Dublin Core stands for universal metadata interoperability, and the conference has become known as a venue for discussion and collaboration between groups and individuals working on similar problems in different contexts.

Previous conferences have drawn 100-150 participants from around the world, and we anticipate a similar number this year.
