*Professional Program Objectives*

Each of the past 20 years, practitioners and researchers in metadata have
gathered for DCMI's annual meeting and international conference. This year,
we will be gathering in São Paulo, Brazil. The scope of interests for the
Professional Program is broad and inclusive of all aspects of innovative
metadata design, implementation, and best practices in all sectors from
cultural heritage institutions to governments and commerce.

While the work of the DCMI progresses throughout the year, the annual
meeting and conference provide the opportunity for researchers, newcomers
to metadata, students, apprentices, and early career professionals to
gather face-to-face to share experiences and knowledge and to learn through
*Tutorials*, *Workshops*, and *Special Sessions* tracks.

In addition, the *Best Practice Posters & Demonstration* tracks offer the
practitioner the opportunity to:

   - *showcase metadata work *underway or completed in their particular
   - *seek input* from the larger community on metadata matters of concern,
   - *compare notes* on innovative practice, and
   - *cast a broader light* into their particular metadata work silos.

Through such a gathering of the metadata communities of practice, DCMI
advances its "first goal" of promoting metadata interoperability and
harmonization across the metadata ecosystem.

*Submission & Session Languages*

Proposals for Professional Program tracks may be in *Portuguese* or
