DC 2011 - International Conference on Dublin Core and Metadata Application
Organised by DCMI
From 21/09/2011 to 23/09/2011
Metadata harmonization remains critical challenge in design of languages of description. DC-2011 will explore the conceptual and practical issues of design when the language solution calls for cross-fertilization from different metadata specifications.
DC-2011, the eleventh International Conference on Dublin Core and Metadata Applications, will take place at the National Library of the Netherlands (KB) that fosters the national infrastructure for scientific information and plays an important role in the permanent access to digital information at an international level.
On Wednesday 21 September there will be a full day of Tutorials alongside a special session on Vocabulary Management and Alignment. The program for the conference on Thursday 22 and Friday 23 September includes plenary keynotes and paper sessions, posters, workshop and special sessions, while there will also be an opportunity for people to meet in an "unconference" setting.
