DCMI 2023: Call for Participation
Metadata Innovation: Enabling Knowledge in a Data-Intensive World
November 6-10, Daegu, Korea
For more than two decades, the Dublin Core community has been a fertile ground for researchers, educators, practitioners, and developers to exchange and share ideas, knowledge, experience, and innovative projects on metadata.
After three years of pandemic conditions and three all-virtual conferences, many of us look forward to meeting again in person, so we are planning for an in-person meeting in early November, in Daegu, Korea.
DCMI 2023, the twenty-first International Conference on Dublin Core and Metadata Applications, will embrace the whole spectrum of innovation in metadata design, implementation, and best practices, with a special focus on challenges and opportunities in a data-intensive world.
Today's data-driven, data-dependent, and data-intensive environment requires metadata that is findable, accessible, interoperable, and reusable (FAIR), which is the underpinning of data and knowledge ecosystems.
Metadata has never been more crucial than today. Trending fields related to digital transformation such as connected data catalogs, collaboration and remote work, artificial intelligence and machine learning, digital history and ethics, and open science depend on high-quality metadata.
The parallel growth of data and metadata challenges the metadata community to rethink its research and practices in order to stay ahead of emerging trends.
DCMI 2023 is a venue for discussing "innovative practice" - new solutions to practical problems. It draws participants from universities, research institutions, and LAMs (libraries, archives, museums), as well as corporations, non-profit organizations, and government agencies.
The organizers of DCMI 2023 seek inspirational submissions on innovative ideas, practices, and solutions that are built on theoretical models, empirical evidence, and ethical and just foundations of metadata.
Submissions in the form of papers (long and short), posters, panels, tutorials, and student forums are welcome in the following broad categories of metadata design, deployment, and best practices:
Full papers either describe innovative work in detail or provide critical, well-referenced overviews of key developments or good practices.
Short papers are narrower in scope than full papers and may be either a description of work in progress, or a project report that concisely describes a specific model, application, or activity.
Posters are for the presentation of projects, research under development, or late-breaking results.
Panel sessions are organized by experts in a specific area of metadata. Each panel serves as a focused exchange regarding the latest research and/or best practice in the area.
Tutorials introduce specific topics of current interest in metadata practice, optionally including hands-on practice. Proposals for tutorials must include:
The student forum aims at providing an opportunity for master’s and doctoral students to share their experiences and exchange ideas of best practices, research in progress, and findings in areas related to metadata innovation.
* Student forum will be in a hybrid format. In-person participation is encouraged with the option of virtual.
CONSULTATION: STANDARD FOR MANAGING METADATA PRODDUCT SUITE AND DRAFT GUIDANCE ON DIGITAL FILE FORMATS (JUNE 19 - 30)
We want to hear from you! Consultation on the Standard for Managing Metadata Product Suite and the draft Guidance on Digital File Formats.
As a result of the What We Heard report from our February 2023 consultation on the draft Standard for Managing Metadata, the Information and Data Governance Team within OCIO has tweaked the Standard and developed three supplementary guidance documents to support its implementation. We’re now ready to go back out and consult with GC employees and communities once again, to ensure that we got it right and capture their final review of the documents.
In parallel, we are asking GC employees and communities to review and provide feedback on the draft Guidance on Digital File Formats, which was developed as part of feedback received from GC departments related to the Standard for Systems that Manage Information and Data (SStMID).
From now until June 30, 2023, you can provide your direct input on these draft documents by clicking the links below:
Consultation on the Standard for Managing Metadata product suite
Consultation on the draft Guidance on Digital File Formats

We want your feedback – Overview of the GC Digital Talent Strategy / Nous voulons votre rétroaction – Aperçu de la Stratégie en matière de talents numériques du GC
Over the past few months, Treasury Board of Canada Secretariat (TBS)'s Office of the Chief Information Officer (OCIO) has been developing the Government of Canada (GC) Digital Talent Strategy, which seeks to increase the GC’s ability to deliver secure, reliable, and user-centric digital services by attracting, retaining, and developing digital talent across the GC.
By digital talent, we mean folks across classifications and domains who develop or deliver digital initiatives, products, or services, including application developers, cloud engineers, cyber security practitioners, user experience designers, and so many more roles.
The Strategy is made up of four (4) missions:
· Mission #1 – Attract and recruit digital talent
· Mission #2 - Develop and retain digital talent
· Mission #3 – Set digital talent and the enterprise up for success through fit-for-purpose processes, policies, and tools
· Mission #4 - Create a digital culture defined by diversity, equity, and inclusion and putting people first to drive service excellence
Each mission is comprised of actions that are designed to be achievable within a three-year period. After the Strategy is published in late summer/early fall, a roadmap will be released to departments and agencies with further detail surrounding actions, sub-actions, expected outcomes, and accountable organizations.
Here is a GC Digital Talent Strategy presentation which outlines the purpose, context, missions and associated actions. English deck (comment only): https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/11G6eNGDpwOH_XBkQ85DR6PX74RrD27L_Ix8nDs5mfCk/edit?usp=sharing

Bonjour à tous!
Au cours des derniers mois, le Bureau de la dirigeante principale de l’information (BDPI) du Secrétariat du Conseil du Trésor du Canada (SCT) a élaboré la Stratégie en matière de talents numériques du gouvernement du Canada (GC), qui vise à accroître la capacité du GC à fournir des services numériques sécurisés, fiables et centrés sur l’utilisateur en attirant, en retenant et en perfectionnant les talents numériques à l’échelle du GC.
Par talents numériques, nous entendons les personnes qui, dans toutes les classifications et tous les domaines, élaborent ou fournissent des initiatives, des produits ou des services numériques, y compris les développeurs d’applications, les ingénieurs de l’informatique en nuage, les praticiens de la cybersécurité, les concepteurs de l’expérience utilisateur, et bien d’autres rôles encore.
La Stratégie est composée de quatre (4) missions :
Mission no 1 – Attirer et recruter des talents numériques.
Mission no 2 – Perfectionner et retenir les talents numériques.
Mission no 3 – Préparer les talents numériques et l’organisation à la réussite grâce à des processus, des politiques et des outils adaptés.
Mission no 4 – Créer une culture numérique définie par la diversité, l’équité et l’inclusion et donner la priorité aux personnes pour favoriser l’excellence des services.
Chaque mission est composée d’actions conçues pour être réalisables dans un délai de trois ans. Après la publication de la Stratégie à la fin de l’été ou au début de l’automne, on communiquera une feuille de route aux ministères et aux agences, avec des détails supplémentaires sur les actions, les sous-actions, les résultats escomptés et les organisations responsables.
Vous trouverez une présentation de la Stratégie en matière de talents numériques du GC qui décrit l’objectif, le contexte, les missions et les actions associées.
