There are still places available for the Seminar “Five years on”, marking the five years of progress in library linked data since the “London Meeting” of 2007. The Seminar takes place on Friday 27 April 2012, 09.00/30 to 17.00. The venue for the Seminar is the British Library, St. Pancras, London.

The final list of speakers for the Seminar includes:

* Mikael Nilsson, Google
* Edmund Chamberlain, Cambridge University Library
* Alan Danskin, British Library
* Barbara Tillett, Joint Steering Committee for the Development of RDA (JSC)
* Robina Claphan, Europeana
* Mirna Willer, IFLA ISBD Review Group
* Pat Riva, IFLA FRBR Review Group
* Thomas Baker, DCMI
* Gordon Dunsire, IFLA Namespaces Technical Group and DCMI
* Diane Hillmann, DCMI and Metadata Management Associates
* Owen Stephens, JISC

The London Meeting of 31 April/1 May 2007 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.

Registration for the Seminar has been set at USD 190 (including VAT), which includes lunch and refreshments for two breaks. Further information and online registration is available at:

Please note that registration for the DCMI meetings on Thursday 26 April has now closed, as all places have been taken.

Cheers, and apologies for cross-posting.
