DC-2018: Open Metadata for Open Knowledge in Porto, Portugal 

Montag, 10. September 2018 (Ganztägig) bis Donnerstag, 13. September 2018 (Ganztägig)

The Dublin Core community has focused on the role of structured description (metadata) in finding and using this knowledge. The role of metadata has evolved over this last quarter-century with the rise of search engines, social media, crowdsourcing, Semantic Web, and machine learning alongside the traditional arts of metadata curation.
DC-2018 asks how metadata technologies and practices must further evolve to support open knowledge, often at scale, given current budget realities. Where do we need to innovate, and where do we need to consolidate existing good practice?
DC-2018 brings together researchers, teachers, students, practitioners and developers working with metadata for a few intense days of demonstration, discussion and collaboration. Dublin Core conferences draw not only from universities, libraries, and research institutions, but also commercial businesses working in the open knowledge space.

DC-2018 is collocated this year with TPDL 2018. This fits DCMI’s tradition of working with other communities in its mission to increase interoperability and harmonisation in the development and application of metadata.
