The Dublin Core™ Metadata Initiative supports innovation in metadata design and best practices. DCMI is supported by its members and is a project of ASIS&T.
This is an important announcement regarding the DCMI 2020 International Conference on Metadata, Ottawa.
With regret, due to the Covid-19 pandemic and the consequent uncertainty and disruption which will continue for the medium term, the DCMI 2020 Organising Committee has taken the decision to postpone the DCMI 2020 International Conference on Metadata until Autumn 2021. We have now closed the Call For Participation for this year, and will write to those who had already submitted a proposal. We apologise to those of you who may have begun preparing for this, and trust that you understand that this is unavoidable.
Now for some more positive news! We are planning an alternative event for September 2020. We are calling this DCMI Virtual. This will be a programme of virtual, invited, moderated sessions including presentations, tutorials, expert panel discussions and keynotes. We will do our best to make these as interactive as possible, with moderated question and answer sessions.
