The Dublin Core Metadata Initiative (DCMI) annual international conference in 2018 will be co-located with the Theory and Practice of Digital Libraries (TPDL) annual international conference, and will be hosted by the University of Porto in Portugal, September 10–13, 2018.

The conferences will deliver two, parallel programmes of peer-reviewed papers, tutorials and workshops. Delegates will register once, and will then be free to choose between the two programmes, with some plenary sessions (keynotes) and social events bringing all delegates together.

For a single registration you will be able to choose from a range of talks, workshops and tutorials!

DC-2018 Conference theme

DC-2018 asks how metadata technologies and practices must further evolve to support open knowledge, often at scale, given current budget realities. Where do we need to innovate, and where do we need to consolidate existing good practice?

DC-2018 brings together researchers, teachers, students, practitioners and developers working with metadata for a few intense days of demonstration, discussion and collaboration. Dublin Core conferences draw not only from universities, libraries, and research institutions, but also commercial businesses working in the open knowledge space.
