       CONFERENCE ANNOUNCEMENT AND INITIAL CALL FOR PAPERS

       DC-2008 -- International Conference on Dublin Core
                  and Metadata Applications
                  http://dc2008.de/

                  "Metadata for Semantic and Social Applications"

                  22-26 September 2008
                  Berlin

The annual Dublin Core conferences bring together leading
metadata researchers and professionals from around the world.
DC-2008 in Berlin will be the eighth in a series of conferences
held previously in Tokyo, Florence, Seattle, Shanghai, Madrid,
Manzanillo, and Singapore.  The conference is organized jointly
by the Competence Centre for Interoperable Metadata (KIM),
Max Planck Digital Library, Goettingen State and University
Library, the German National Library, Humboldt Universitt zu
Berlin, and Dublin Core Metadata Initiative with sponsorship
from Wikimedia Deutschland.

CONFERENCE THEME

Metadata is a key aspect of our evolving infrastructure for
information management, social computing, and scientific
collaboration.

DC-2008 will focus on metadata challenges, solutions, and
innovation in initiatives and activities underlying semantic
and social applications.  Metadata is part of the fabric of
social computing, which includes the use of wikis, blogs,
and tagging for collaboration and participation.   Metadata
also underlies the development of semantic applications,
and the Semantic Web -- the representation and integration
of multimedia knowledge structures on the basis of semantic
models.  These two trends flow together in applications such
as Wikipedia, where authors collectively create structured
information that can be extracted and used to enhance access
to and use of information sources.

Recent discussion has focused on how existing bibliographic
standards can be expressed as Semantic Web vocabularies
to facilitate the integration of library and cultural
heritage data with other types of data.  Harnessing the
efforts of content providers and end-users to link, tag,
edit, and describe their information in interoperable ways
("participatory metadata") is a key step towards providing
knowledge environments that are scalable, self-correcting,
and evolvable.

DC-2008 will explore conceptual and practical issues in the
development and deployment of semantic and social applications
to meet the needs of specific communities of practice.

Papers, reports, and poster submissions are welcome on a wide
range of metadata topics, such as:

+ Metadata generation (methods, tools, and practices)

+ Semantic Web metadata and applications

+ Conceptual models and frameworks (e.g., RDF, DCAM, OAIS)

+ Social tagging

+ Knowledge Organization Systems (KOS) and Simple Knowledge
   Organization Systems (SKOS) (e.g., ontologies, taxonomies,
   authority files, folksonomies, and thesauri)

+ Metadata in e-Science and grid applications

+ Metadata interoperability and internationalization

+ Metadata quality, normalization, and mapping

+ Cross-domain metadata uses (e.g., recordkeeping,
   preservation, institutional repositories)

+ Vocabulary registries and registry services

+ Domain metadata (e.g., for corporations, cultural memory
   institutions, education, government, and scientific fields)

+ Application profiles

+ Accessibility metadata

+ Search engines and metadata

+ Metadata principles, guidelines, and best practices

+ Bibliographic standards (e.g., Resource Description and Access
   (RDA), Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records (FRBR),
   subject headings) as Semantic Web vocabularies

SUBMISSIONS:

All submissions  will be peer-reviewed by the International
Program Committee and published in the conference proceedings.
The Committee is soliciting paper contributions of the
following three 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 (4 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
implementers

    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 Berlin by at least one of their authors.

-- POSTERS (1 page)

    Posters are for the presentation of projects or research under
    development or late-breaking results.  Poster proposals
    should consist of a title, an extended abstract, and
    contact information for the authors.  Accepted posters
    will be displayed at the conference and may include
    additional materials, space permitting.  Abstracts of
    posters will appear in the conference proceedings.

ONLINE SUBMISSION

Authors wishing to submit papers, reports, or poster
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.
