Hi Michael,

I'm not aware of any formal mappings of the CIDOC CRM to the IPTC Core 
fields, but Adobe has tacitly mapped many of the IPTC Core fields to 
Dublin Core in their XMP implementation (e.g. IPTC.Object_Name > 
DC.Title, IPTC.Caption > DC.Description, IPTC.Byline > DC.Creator etc.), 
and there is a mapping of the Dublin Core to the CIDOC CRM on the 
Mappings page of the website:
