The Dublin Core Metadata Initiative (DCMI) annual international conference in 2019 will be hosted by the National Library of Korea, in Seoul, South Korea, 23rd – 26th September, 2019.
The Dublin Core community has been a fertile ground for researchers, educators, practitioners and developers to exchange and share ideas, knowledge, experience, and innovative projects on metadata for more than two decades. The role of metadata has never been more critical than today. In a data-intensive, data-dependent, and data-driven culture, metadata has become one of the underpinning dimensions for the digital data era. Fashionable fields such as linked (open) data, research data, new artificial intelligence, machine learning, digital humanities and open science are dependent upon quality metadata to operate and perform effectively. Besides supporting information and data management, discovery, sharing, conservation, and reuse, metadata has become an invaluable source for analytics and knowledge discovery. The parallel growth of data and metadata offers new challenges and opportunities for the metadata community to rethink and reposition metadata research and practice in order to stay ahead of the next wave of developments in data-driven environments and cultures. This year the DC2019 conference expands its themes to the whole spectrum of innovation in metadata design, implementation & best practices, with a special focus on challenges and opportunities in the data-intensive world.
