Next Generation Professionals (Special Session)

A session at DC 2014: International Conference on Dublin Core and Metadata Applications

Thursday 9th October, 2014

10:30am to 12:00pm (CST)

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.
