"LINKING TO THE FUTURE"
International Conference on Dublin Core and Metadata Applications
2-6 September 2013, Lisbon, Portugal

=============================================
DC-2013 CALL FOR PARTICIPATION
=============================================

DC-2013 will explore questions regarding the persistence, maintenance, and
preservation of metadata and descriptive vocabularies. The need for stable
representations and descriptions spans all sectors including cultural
heritage and scientific data, eGovernment, finance and commerce. Thus, the
maintenance and management of metadata is essential to address the long
term availability of information of legal, cultural and economic value.  On
the web, data—and especially descriptive vocabularies—can change or vanish
from one moment to the next. Nonetheless, the web increasingly forms the
ecosystem for our vocabularies and our data. DC-2013 will bring together in
Lisbon the community of metadata scholars and practitioners to engage in
the exchange of knowledge and best practices in developing a sustainable
metadata ecosystem.

DC-2013 will be collocated and run simultaneous with iPRES 2013 providing a
rich environment for synergistic exploration of issues common to both
communities.

implementation
(2) Quality of the contribution to the implementation community
(3) Significance of the results presented
(4) Clarity of presentation

PROJECT REPORTS (4-5 pages; Peer reviewed): Project reports describe a
specific model, application, or activity in a concise presentation. Project
reports will be assessed using the following criteria:

(1) Conciseness and completeness of technical description
(2) Usability of the technical description by other potential implementers
(3) Clarity of presentation

POSTERS (1-2 pages; Peer reviewed): Posters are for the presentation of
projects or research under development or late-breaking results. Poster
submission should consist of a one-two page extended abstract.  Posters
will be assessed using the following criteria:

(1) Concise statement of research or project goals and milestones
(2) Significance of the research or project
(3) Framing of key barriers and future research
(4) Statement of results and accomplishments
(5) Clarity of presentation

One or more sessions will be scheduled for display and discussion of
posters at the conference venue. Instructions on the preparation of the
display poster can be found at
http://dcevents.dublincore.org/index.php/IntConf/index/pages/view/posterAuthors

SPECIAL & PANEL SESSIONS: Special and panel sessions are organized by
experts in a specific area of metadata. Each special session serves as a
focused exchange of the latest research and/or best practice in the area. A
proposal for a special session consists of a single document of
approximately 800-1,200 words in length containing:

--Session title
--35-50 word abstract for use in promoting the session
--Brief description of the scope and motivation for the session
