Singapore, Central Singapore

The DC-2007 theme focuses on the theory and practice of developing application profiles. Application profiles provide the means to document the use of metadata terms within specific contexts and to combine terms from disparate namespaces. Application profiles may apply to communities of practice (e.g. cooperation projects) as well as to organizations in the public and private sectors. Emerging experience in the creation of application profiles reveals layers of complexity involved in combining terms from mixed abstract models. DC-2007 seeks to explore the conceptual and practical issues in the development and deployment of application profiles to meet the needs of specific communities of practice.

In addition to contributions focusing on the DC-2007 conference theme, papers and workshop proposals are welcome on a wide range of metadata topics, such as:

* Accessibility
* Business Models for Metadata
* Conceptual Models
* Cross-domain Processes (e.g., Recordkeeping, Preservation, Institutional Repositories)
* Domain Metadata (e.g., Commerce, Corporate/Enterprise, Cultural Heritage Institutions (Museums, Libaries, and Archives), Education, Geo-Spatial, Government, Social Spaces)
* Metadata Generation Processes (e.g., Human, Automatic, and Hybrid)
* Metadata Harvesting
* Multilingual Issues
* Interoperability
* Knowledge Organization Systems (e.g., Ontologies, Taxonomies, and Thesauri)
* Localization and Internationalization
