As we discussed at the meeting in Amsterdam in November, I said I would send you the dates of the libraries and Semantic Web event I mentioned, to help schedule the next meeting of the frbr-crm group - I think we were offered Paris or Heraklion. Both are easy to get to from London. It would be good if we can schedule the next meeting to follow this event in London, as it will be far more convenient, and cheaper, for anyone with long distances to travel to London. 




April 2012 marks the fifth anniversary of the Data Model Meeting [1] at the British Library, London attended by participants interested in the fit between RDA: resource description and access and the models used in other metadata communities, especially those working in the Semantic Web environment. This meeting, informally known as the “London Meeting”, has proved to be a critical point in the trajectory of libraries from the traditional data view to linked data and the Semantic Web. 

DCMI (Dublin Core Metadata Initiative) and others will host a one-day seminar on Friday 27 April 2012 to describe progress since 2007, mark the anniversary, and look to further collaboration in the future. 

Speakers will include participants at the 2007 meeting and other significant players in library data and the Semantic Web. Papers from the seminar will be published by DCMI and available freely online. 

The seminar will be preceded by inaugural meetings of the new DCMI Vocabulary Management Community [2] and DCMI Bibliographic Metadata Task Group [3] on Thursday 28 April 2012 which will be open to all. 

The venue for both days is the British Library, St Pancras, London. 

The London Meeting stimulated significant development of Semantic Web representations of the major international bibliographic metadata models, including IFLA’s Functional Requirements family and the International Standard Bibliographic Description (ISBD), and MARC as well as RDA itself. Attention is now beginning to focus on the management and sustainability of this activity, and the development of high-level semantic and data structures to support library applications. 

This is a preliminary announcement; further information will be circulated in due course and published via [2] and [3].
