 Registration for the Seminar marking the five years of progress in library
linked data since the “London Meeting” of 2007 will open shortly; a
separate announcement will be made for registration and housing
information. In parallel, agendas for the DCMI meetings preceding the
Seminar are being developed by the DCMI Bibliographic Metadata Task Group
and the DCMI Vocabulary Management Community. The venue for both days is
the British Library, St. Pancras, London.

We wish to bring you up to date with the detail of the Seminar and meetings
so that you can prepare for early registration, as places are limited.

While still awaiting a few confirmations, we are pleased to announce a
preliminary list of speakers for the Seminar, which includes:
    Barbara Tillett, Joint Steering Committee for the Development of RDA
(JSC)
    Robina Claphan, Europeana
    Mirna Willer, IFLA ISBD Review Group
    Patricia Riva, IFLA FRBR Review Group
    Thomas Baker, DCMI
    Gordon Dunsire, IFLA Namespaces Technical Group and DCMI
    Diane Hillmann, DCMI and Metadata Management Associates
    Owen Stephens, JISC

The London Meeting of 31 April/1 May 2007 stimulated significant
development of Semantic Web representations of the major international
bibliographic metadata models, including IFLA’s Functional Requirements
family and the International Standard Bibliographic Description (ISBD), and
MARC as well as RDA itself. Attention is now beginning to focus on the
management and sustainability of this activity, and the development of
high-level semantic and data structures to support library applications.

Registration for the Seminar has been set at GBP 120 (including VAT), which
includes lunch and refreshments for two breaks. The DCMI meetings are free
and open to anyone, but we have very limited space and will require
registration.  The DCMI meetings on the 26th will begin at 9:30, beginning
with the Bibliographic Metadata Task Group [1] from 9:30-12:30 and the
Vocabulary Management Community [2] from 14:00-17:00.  The Seminar on the
27th begins at 9:00.

Diane Hillmann (Moderator, DCMI Vocabulary Management Community; Co-Chair,
DCMI Bibliographic Metadata Task Group)
