                 CALL FOR PAPERS

         DC-2007 International Conference on 
        Dublin Core and Metadata Applications

    "Application Profiles: Theory and Practice"

27-31 August 2007, Singapore

The annual Dublin Core conferences bring together leading
metadata researchers and professionals from around the
world. The 2006 conference in Manzanillo, Mexico attracted 234
participants from 25 countries.  DC-2007 in Singapore will
be the seventh in a series of conferences previously held
in Tokyo (2001), Florence (2002), Seattle (2003), Shanghai
(2004), Madrid (2005), and Manzanillo, Mexico (2006).


The DC-2007 theme focuses on the theory and practice of
developing application profiles.  Application profiles
provide the means to document the use of metadata terms
within specific contexts and to combine terms from disparate
namespaces. Application profiles may apply to communities
of practice (e.g. cooperation projects) as well as to
organizations in the public and private sectors.   Emerging
experience in the creation of application profiles reveals
layers of complexity involved in combining terms from mixed
abstract models.  DC-2007 seeks to explore the conceptual
and practical issues in the development and deployment of
application profiles to meet the needs of specific communities
of practice.

In addition to contributions focusing on the DC-2007 conference
theme, papers and workshop proposals are welcome on a wide
range of metadata topics, such as:

+ Accessibility
+ Business Models for Metadata
+ Conceptual Models
+ Cross-domain Processes (e.g., Recordkeeping, Preservation, 
  Institutional Repositories)
+ Domain Metadata (e.g., Commerce, Corporate/Enterprise, 
  Cultural Heritage Institutions (Museums, Libaries, and 
  Archives), Education, Geo-Spatial, Government, Social Spaces)
+ Metadata Generation Processes (e.g., Human, Automatic, and 
+ Metadata Harvesting
+ Multilingual Issues
+ Interoperability
+ Knowledge Organization Systems (e.g., Ontologies, Taxonomies, 
  and Thesauri)
+ Localization and Internationalization
+ Normalization and Crosswalks
+ Quality and Evaluation
+ Registries and Registry Services
+ Search Engines and Metadata
+ Social Tagging


All paper submissions to the Conference Proceedings are peer
reviewed by the International Program Committee.  The Committee
is soliciting paper contributions of the following two types:

-- Full Papers (8 to 10 pages).  Full papers either describe
   innovative original 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:

   o  Originality of the approach to implementation
   o  Generalizability of the methods and results described
   o  Quality of the contribution to the implementation community
   o  Significance of the results presented
   o  Clarity of presentation

-- Project Reports (3 to 5 pages).  Project reports describe
   a specific model, application, or activity in a concise,
   prescribed format.  Project reports will be assessed using
   the following criteria:

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

Paper submissions in both categories must be in English and
will be published in both the print and the official electronic
versions of the conference proceedings.  Accepted papers must
be presented in Singapore by at least one of their authors.



Workshop Proposals (1 page).  Workshop proposals define
the topic of a workshop session at the conference, identify
session organizers, and describe a process for inviting and
reviewing contributions.



Authors wishing to submit papers or workshop proposals
may do so through the DCMI Peer Review System at
http://www.dcmipubs.org/ojs/index.php/pubs/.  Author
registration and links to the submission process appear under
the "Information for Authors" link.


    Papers submission:       2 April 2007
    Acceptance notification: 1 June 2007
    Camera-ready copy due:   2 July 2007
