DCMI 2023: Call for Participation
November 6-10, Daegu, Korea
Metadata Innovation: Enabling Knowledge in a Data-Intensive World

For more than two decades, 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

After three years of pandemic conditions and three all-virtual conferences,
many of us look forward to meeting again in person, so we are planning for
an in-person meeting in early November, in Daegu, Korea.

DCMI 2023, the twenty-first International Conference on Dublin Core and
Metadata Applications, will embrace the whole spectrum of innovation in
metadata design, implementation, and best practices, with a special focus
on challenges and opportunities in a data-intensive world.

Today's data-driven, data-dependent, and data-intensive environment
requires metadata that is findable, accessible, interoperable, and reusable
(FAIR), which is the underpinning of data and knowledge ecosystems.

Metadata has never been more crucial than today. Trending fields related to
digital transformation such as connected data catalogs, collaboration and
remote work, artificial intelligence and machine learning, digital history
and ethics, and open science depend on high-quality metadata.

The parallel growth of data and metadata challenges the metadata community
to rethink its research and practices in order to stay ahead of emerging

DCMI 2023 is a venue for discussing "innovative practice" - new solutions
to practical problems. It draws participants from universities, research
institutions, and LAMs (libraries, archives, museums), as well as
corporations, non-profit organizations, and government agencies.

The organizers of DCMI 2023 seek inspirational submissions on innovative
ideas, practices, and solutions that are built on theoretical models,
empirical evidence, and ethical and just foundations of metadata.

Submissions in the form of papers (long and short), posters, panels,
tutorials, and student forums are welcome in the following broad categories
of metadata design, deployment, and best practices:
* Metadata principles, guidelines, and best practices
* Curation, governance, resilience, and sustainability
* Metadata quality and validation
* Metadata analytics
* Conceptual models and frameworks
* Entity modeling and management
* Metadata vocabularies
* Interoperability and harmonization
* Metadata automation, AI, and knowledge graphs
* Lessons learned from research and implementation
* Metadata and diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility (DEIA)
* Metadata history and ethics
* Metadata for operational and research data
* Metadata in digital humanities, open science, and business communications
* Metadata and government
* Metadata and commerce

** Submission Guidelines
* At least one author of an accepted submission must be physically present
at the conference to present the work in person (*with an exception of the
student forum).

Google Scholar, Semantic Scholar, ACM, and Crossref. Online proceedings
will be available before the start of the conference.
* Presentation slides, poster slide images, and student forum extended
abstracts will be published on the DCMI website.

** Full Papers

Full papers either describe innovative work in detail or provide critical,
well-referenced overviews of key developments or good practices.
* 8-10 pages, single-spaced, plus references

** Short Papers

Short papers are narrower in scope than full papers and may be either a
description of work in progress, or a project report that concisely
describes a specific model, application, or activity.
* 4-5 pages, single-spaced, plus references

** Posters

Posters are for the presentation of projects, research under development,
or late-breaking results.
* 2-page abstract, single-spaced, plus references

** Panels

Panel sessions are organized by experts in a specific area of metadata.
Each panel serves as a focused exchange regarding the latest research
and/or best practice in the area.
* 1-2 page abstract with panelists' bios of 100-150 words each

** Tutorials

Tutorials introduce specific topics of current interest in metadata
practice, optionally including hands-on practice. Proposals for tutorials
must include:
* 2-3 page proposal including:
* Title of tutorial and topic to be covered (2-3 paragraphs)
* Target audience and expected learning outcomes
* Tutorial style: lecture, demonstration, hands-on practice, etc.
* Any prior knowledge required (e.g., RDF, programming languages)
* Whether participants must (or should) bring laptops or install software
* Presenter bios (100-150 words each)

** Student Forum

The student forum aims at providing an opportunity for master's and
doctoral students to share their experiences and exchange ideas of best
practices, research in progress, and findings in areas related to metadata

* Student forum will be in a hybrid format. In-person participation is
encouraged with the option of virtual.
* Less than 1500 words plus references
* All presenters at the student forum will receive free registration for
the conference
