DC-2010 marks the 15th anniversary of Dublin Core and the 10th year of the Annual Conference. To celebrate and reflect on the past and future, conference participants will engage in investigations in both research and application entailing advances that make metadata work harder in ways beyond the originally identified need for better resource discovery.
Beyond the conference theme, papers, reports, and poster submissions are welcome on a wide range of metadata topics, such as:
--Metadata principles, guidelines, and best practices --Metadata quality, normalization, improvement and mapping --Conceptual models and frameworks (e.g., RDF, DCAM, OAIS) --Application profiles --Metadata interoperability across domains, languages, time, structures, and scales.
--Cross-domain metadata uses (e.g., recordkeeping, preservation, curation, institutional repositories, publishing) --Domain metadata (e.g., for corporations, cultural memory institutions, education, government, and scientific fields) --Bibliographic standards (e.g., RDA, FRBR, subject headings) as Semantic Web vocabularies --Accessibility metadata --Metadata for scientific data, e-Science and grid applications --Social tagging and user participation in building metadata --Knowledge Organization Systems (e.g., ontologies, taxonomies, authority files, folksonomies, and thesauri) and Simple Knowledge Organization Systems (SKOS) --Ontology design and development --Integration of metadata and ontologies --Metadata generation (methods, tools, and practices) --Search engines and metadata --Semantic Web metadata and applications --Vocabulary registries and registry services
