International Conference on
Dublin Core and Metadata Applications
DCMI 2016 Annual Meeting
Crowne Plaza Copenhagen Towers
October 13-16, 2016
The Summit in Copenhagen launches DCMI’s 3rd decade and provides a forum for looking forward to new challenges and backward at challenges met and challenges unresolved. Every year the DCMI community gathers for both its Annual Meeting and its International Conference on Dublin Core & Metadata Applications. 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 Conference and Annual Meeting provide the opportunity for DCMI “citizens” as well as newcomers, students, apprentices, and early career professionals to gather face-to-face to share knowledge and experience. The Summit in Copenhagen will provide the opportunity for public- and private-sector initiatives beyond DCMI that are doing significant metadata work to come together, to compare notes, and to 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.
