 Venue:      National Institute of Informatics, Tokyo, Japan
 Sponsors:   National Institute of Informatics (NII, http://www.nii.ac.jp/)

 Providing machine-understandable data on the Web has become a priority
 not just for publishers and scientific communities, but for a wide
 range of commercial ventures and services.  Resource discovery across a
 diversity of services on the emerging Semantic Web is facilitated by
 the use of shared metadata vocabularies such as the Dublin Core
 Metadata Element Set.

 The Dublin Core workshop series has provided a forum for international,
 cross-disciplinary metadata development since 1995.  DC-2001, ninth in
 this series, will include an international conference for the broader
 metadata community with three principal missions:

 -- to provide a forum to discuss further development of the Dublin Core
    and related metadata standards
 -- to provide a forum to present and exchange new ideas about metadata
    and applications, not limited to Dublin Core, and
 -- to provide tutorials on the creation, management, and use of
    metadata applications.

 DC-2001 is the first event in the DC Workshop series to be hosted in
 Asia and is also the first event to include conference and tutorial
 tracks in addition to the workshop.

 The Workshop track (Monday-Wednesday, 22-24 October), will feature
 technical meetings of ongoing working groups of the Dublin Core
 Metadata Initiative.  The agenda for the workshop track is under
 development in DCMI Working Groups.  All active members of working
 groups, and others who would like to become active, are invited to

 The Conference track (Wednesday-Friday, 24-26 October), will feature
 paper presentations, tutorials and special sessions dedicated in
 specific topics, e.g. Education and Government Information.
 The advance program is attached below. DC-2001 is planning to
 extend the conference program for a special session dedicated in
 the Semantic Web activity of the World Wide Web consortium in
 the afternoon on Friday October 26.
