    Coverage write-up

  • Positioning DCMI & Dublin Core in the Metadata Ecosystem (Tutorial)

    Note: Tutorial fee applies

    Abstract: In March 2015, "Dublin Core" celebrates its 20th anniversary. What will it celebrate? What is "Dublin Core"? This tutorial will provide both an historical overview and a context for understanding the various facets the Dublin Core Metadata Initiative (DCMI), its community, its accomplishments, and its institutional relationships and influence. The goals of the tutorial will be to align the events shaping the history of the Initiative with the evolving technologies shaping the Internet, Web and the semantic metadata.

  • RDF Validation in the Cultural Heritage Community (Tutorial)

    by Kai Eckert, Valentine CHARLES and Karen Coyle

    Note: Tutorial fee applies

    Abstract: Resource Description Framework (RDF) does not natively provide rules for structuring descriptions or validating instance data. This tutorial will present the problems of of data structuring and validation in RDF. There will be a discussion of current techniques that are being proposed as solutions (SPIN, Data Shapes, ICV, etc.). Using examples from the cultural heritage community (Europeana Data Model, DPLA data model, etc.), speakers will present actual cases where validation and record-like structuring is needed. It will relate these efforts to the concept of application profiles, drawing on some existing examples, such as Dublin Core Application Profiles and BIBFRAME Profiles.

  • Next Generation Professionals (Special Session)

    AT&T: Room 102

    This special session will highlight the presence at the conference of the students and early-career professionals as well as their sponsors and to provide the students and professionals with the opportunity to meet and interact with some of the key researchers, thought leaders and practitioner of metadata. The intention of the session is to get early-career professionals and students excited by the opportunities and challenges they will have in "metadata work" after they complete their programs and apprenticeships.

    In addition to one-on-one interactions, a select panel of metadata practitioners, researchers and consultants from across the continuum of metadata practice—design, policy, implementation, and principled practice—will explore with session participants:

    Drivers. What are today's and tomorrow's drivers shaping the changes and challenges in metadata innovation and innovative practice?

    Enablers. Which enablers—whether technology or non-technology—are relevant to public- and private-sector innovation in metadata? How will these enablers shape practice and, equally important, how the practitioner advances his or her professional development in light of the enablers?

    Focus. Which focus areas of metadata innovation should drive the emergent practitioners' choices in terms of self-directed development in the short- and long-term? What opportunities, communities, emergent tools, resources and experiences will help shape those choices.

  • RDF Application Profiles and Tools for Metadata Validation and Quality Control (Special Session)

    by Mark A. Matienzo

    Special Session
    Day/Time: Wednesday, 1:30-5:00

    This session will focus on establishing requirements for implementing Application Profiles from the perspective of software developers. In particular, our interests include the requirements necessary for performing validation and quality checks within tools, and the extent to which established and developing constraint languages remain valuable in our context.

    Scope and Motivation: Over the last fourteen years, the DCMI community has focused much of its efforts on the development of Application Profiles as a means to enable reuse of properties across multiple schemas, as well as constraint languages to express those profiles. Building on the DC-2013 special session « Application Profiles as an Alternative to OWL Ontologies », this session will explore the requirements for defining and implementing Application Profiles from the perspective of software developers and other implementers. In particular, our session will focus on the requirements necessary for performing validation and quality checks within tools, and the extent to which established and developing constraint languages, such as Description Set Profiles and Shape Expressions, remain valuable in our context.

  • Schema.org, SchemaBibExtend—Structured Data on the Web (Special Session)

    AT&T: Room 102

    Special Session
    Day/Time: Friday, 8:30-10:30

    Abstract: Schema.org a structured data markup vocabulary, backed by Google, Yahoo!, Bing and Yandex that is apparently used on 15% of the Web, is an obvious success. Underpinning, what the SEO community call, semantic search is starting to become a de facto approach to simply sharing structured data on the Web for search engines and others to access. As a broad generic vocabulary, from the start it has invited enhancement proposals from interested groups and individuals. One of these groups is Schema Bib Extend who came together to build consensus around and proposals for enhancements to increase Schema.org's capability for representing bibliographic resources.

    Join panelists from: (1) Yandex, one of the Schema.org backing organisations, (2) from the « Schema Bib Extend W3C Group » Chair from OCLC who is publishing hundreds of millions of bibliographic resources using the Schema.org vocabulary, and (3) a member realising the potential by enabling Open Source Library Systems to natively publish Schema.org described data through their user interfaces.

    In addition to individual presentations from the panelists, there will be significant time allocated to discussion and questions on all aspects of Schema.org, its extension and application.

  • Training the Trainers for Linked Data (Workshop)

    AT&T Executive Education and Conference Center Room 102

    Workshop Leads: Seth van Hooland & Ruben Verborgh

    Note: Workshop fee applies

    Abstract: Linked Data has gained momentum, and practitioners are eager to use its principles to derive more value from metadata. Available handbooks and training materials focus on an audience with a computer science background. However, people with a non-technical education find it hard to understand what Linked Data can mean for them. This full-day, hands-on workshop will provide an overview of methods and case studies from the handbook "Linked Data for Libraries, Archives and Museums" (2014, ALA/Neal-Schuman). Using freely available tools and data, this workshop will teach you how to clean, reconcile, enrich, and publish your metadata. Participants will learn about concepts, methods, and tools that they can use on their own, or to teach others within their own institutions, to get more value from metadata.

    At 8:30am to 5:00pm, Saturday 11th October
