Metadata Intersections: Bridging the Archipelago of Cultural Memory
DC-2014 International Conference and Annual Meeting of DCMI
8-11 October 2014 
AT&T Executive Education and Conference Center
   The University of Texas at Austin
Call for Participation: http://purl.org/dcevents/dc-2014/cfp
Researchers, practicing professionals and students with broad interests in principled metadata design and best practices have gathered annually since 1995 under the DCMI banner to exchange ideas, to discover important common ground, and to work on shared problems. As one of the first broadly inclusive efforts at crowdsourcing expertise on the Web, the DCMI community has been a key player in the evolving information environment of the Web of documents and data. 
Metadata is fundamental in enabling ubiquitous access to cultural and scientific resources through galleries, libraries, archives and museums (GLAM). While fundamental, GLAM traditions in documentation and organization lead to significant differences in both their languages of description and domain practices. And yet, the push is on for "radically open cultural heritage data" that bridges these differences as well as those across the humanities and the sciences. DC-2014 will explore the role of metadata in spanning the archipelago of siloed cultural memory in an emerging context of linked access to data repositories as well as repositories of cultural artifacts.
Submissions of papers, reports, and posters are welcome in all areas of innovative metadata design and best practices.
