11th Annual Open Forum for Metadata Registries
Metadata DownUnder - Metadata, Semantics and Interoperability in Practice
Sydney, NSW Australia 19 - 22 May 2008
This Open Forum is the eleventh annual forum in a series of international

aspects and perspectives represented. This forum will focus on the
interoperability of metadata and semantics in prototype and operational

such as healthcare, transportation, manufacturing, statistics and the
environment will be included. Read more...
