(Cyber-infrastructure & Metadata Protocols)

Full-day Workshop: 6 September 2013 @ DC-2013 in Lisbon, Portugal

Web announcement:

A joint Dublin Core-Science and Metadata Community (DC-SAM) <
http://wiki.dublincore.org/index.php/DCMI_Science_And_Metadata> / Research
Data Alliance (RDA) <http://rd-alliance.org/> Metadata Interest Group

Metadata is vital to the discovery and management of scientific data. The
Dublin Core-Science and Metadata Community (DC-SAM), Research Data Alliance
(RDA), and related communities advocate for access to, and shared knowledge
about, metadata standards that support data life-cycle management. CAMP-4-
DATA participants will explore infrastructure design, applications, and
policies that can advance the support of open, collective and sustainable
access to metadata standards used for managing scientific data.


Participation is open to 1.) workshop presenters, and 2.) general
participants/viewers interested in attending the CAMP-4-DATA. Workshop
registration is required.


CAMP-4-DATA seeks contributions in three categories:

1.) Short Papers (1 to 3 pages). A short paper cogently addressing CAMP-4-
DATA goals. Papers may define current challenges, propose a solution, or
report on research underway to advance efforts toward developing a
collective and sustainable metadata directory.

2.) Abstracts about metadata tools and technologies (200 words, maximum).
An abstract summarizing a metadata application or technology that can
address the CAMP-4-DATA goals. Metadata tools and technologies will be
demonstrated during the workshop exhibition period.

3.) Position Statements (250 word/1 page--maximum). A statement defining a
specific infrastructure challenge or policy need that can be discussed
during the CAMP-4-DATA breakout session. Policy statement authors will be
expected to facilitate a discussion on their stated issue and report
discussion results during the workshop synthesis session.
