DC-2010 Call for Papers

International Conference on Dublin Core and Metadata Applications: "Making
Metadata Work Harder: Celebrating 15 Year of Dublin Core"

20-22 October 2010, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, U.S.A.

Co-located with the Annual Meeting of ASIS&T (24-27 October 2010)


* Papers/reports/posters submission: 2 April 2010
* Acceptance notification: 14 May 2010
* Camera-ready copy due: 11 June 2010

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.  The DCMI
Abstract Model, the refined concept of Application Profiles and the initial
Description Set Profile specification, represent an inflection point in the
trajectory of metadata design and deployment in the service of human
information needs.  But all is not perfect and we have much to learn from
sharing experience.  DC-2010, will take stock of progress, look to the
future and celebrate the broad scope of research and applied work in making
metadata work harder.  

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
--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
--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

FULL PAPERS (8-10 pages)

Full papers either describe innovative work in detail or provide critical,
well-referenced overviews of key developments or good practice in the areas
outlined above. Full papers will be assessed using the following criteria:

--Originality of the approach to implementation 
--Quality of the contribution to the implementation community 
--Significance of the results presented 
--Clarity of presentation 


Project reports describe a specific model, application, or activity in a
concise, prescribed format. Project reports will be assessed using the
following criteria:

--Conciseness and completeness of technical description 
--Usability of the technical description by other potential implementers 
--Clarity of presentation 


Posters are for the presentation of projects or research under development
or late-breaking results. Poster proposals should consist of a one-two page
extended abstract.  Posters will be assessed using the following criteria:

--Concise statement of research or project goals and milestones 
--Significance of the research or project 
--Framing of key barriers and future research 
--Statement of results and accomplishments 
--Clarity of presentation

Accepted posters will be published in the Conference Proceedings and
displayed at the conference.   Unless otherwise arranged, accepted posters
must be presented in Pittsburgh by at least one of their authors.  However,
with prior arrangement, posters may be included in the proceedings and
presented by means of video ranging from 4-10 minutes in length and uploaded
to YouTube with the link supplied at the time the poster is submitted. 
Asynchronous mechanisms for participant/author communications will be
