*Abstract: *The need for structured metadata to support ubiquitous access
across the Web to the treasure troves of resources spanning cultures, in
science, and in the digital humanities is now common knowledge among
information systems designers and implementers. Structured metadata
expressed through languages of description make it possible for us to
'speak' about the contents of our treasure troves. But, like all human
languages, our languages of description both enable and isolate. The push
to break out of the isolation of the metadata silos in which professionals
inevitably design, implement and manage metadata in order to discover the
intersections of our treasure troves drives much of today's discourse and
emerging practice in metadata. The emergence of massively integrated Web
presences such as Europeana and the Digital Public Library of America
(DPLA) along with the reshaping of public access globally through
mechanisms such as Linked Data and schema.org drive our conversations, our
excitement, and our fears.

Each of the past 20 years, the metadata community has gathered for
DCMI's conference and annual meeting. 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 annual meeting and conference provide
the opportunity for DCMI "citizens" as well as newcomers, students,
apprentices, and early career professionals to gather face-to-face to share
experiences and knowledge. In addition, the gathering provides public- and
private-sector initiatives beyond DCMI that are doing significant metadata
work to come together to compare notes and 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. This year, the annual meeting
and conference are being hosted by the Universidade Estadual Paulista--São
Paulo State University (UNESP) and held in São Paulo, Brazil.
