About the Event
Two years into the pandemic, the changes and rising needs for information justice and equity prompted the metadata community to reexamine how the metadata community address the biases and prejudice existed in the metadata tools and practices. Creating just, equitable representation of data and information resources and entities plays a significant role in promoting diversity and inclusion. These social and cultural changes coupled with the data-intensive, data-dependent, and data-driven environment demand metadata to be innovative, intelligent, interoperable, sharable, and reusable. Metadata as one of the underpinning dimensions for the digital data era has never been more critical than today. Fashionable fields such as linked (open) data, research data, artificial intelligence, machine learning, digital humanities and open science are dependent upon quality metadata to operate and perform effectively. Besides supporting information and data management, discovery, sharing, conservation, and reuse, metadata has become an invaluable source for analytics and knowledge discovery and make information more accessible for diverse communities. The parallel growth of data and metadata offers new challenges and opportunities for the metadata community to rethink and reposition metadata research and practice in order to stay ahead of the next wave of developments in data-driven environments and diverse cultures.
The DCMI 2022 Conference schedule has been updated with an exciting program. The highlights include:
- Opening keynote by Dr. Hongfang Liu (Mayo Clinic): "Clinical Data Standardization for Learning Healthcare Systems."
- Closing keynote by Dr. Carole Palmer (University of Washington iSchool), "Data Stewardship Principles and Potentials: Knowledge Organization for Contextual Integrity and Convergence."
- Three open sessions: 1) DCMI Community Updates, 2) Student Forum, and 3) Tutorial on Using Dublin Core Tabular Application Profiles (DCTAP).
