    International Conference on Dublin Core
    and Metadata Applications 2001


    Date: 22 - 26 October 2001
    Venue: National Institute of Informatics, Tokyo, Japan
    Sponsors: National Institute of Informatics (NII,

    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 Conference track of DC-2001 (Wednesday-Friday, 24-26 October)
    invites submissions of papers in the following areas:

    -- Conceptual models for metadata
    -- Implementation of systems and tools for metadata applications
    -- Surveys and case studies of metadata applications
    -- Novel activities based on metadata
    -- Interoperability among metadata systems
    -- Relationships among various metadata standards

    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

    Future of Fair Use Seminar- June 15th, 2001
    University of Maryland University College Inn and Conference Center,
    Adelphi MD

    The Center for Intellectual Property is hosting a one-day face to face
    seminar on June 15, 2001 on the Future of Fair Use. Many wonder whether
    there is a need for Fair Use in the digital age, or if a Fair Use should
    also be a free use. This one-day seminar will explore the role of Fair Use
    in the new Information Society where new technologies make digital rights
    management possible and may impact whether Fair Use continues to exist.

    This one-day seminar will provide an in-depth discussion of the copyright
    legal framework and the role of Fair Use in a digitally-based society.
    Break-out sessions are included to give participants the opportunity to
    discuss the application of case law and statutory provisions to particular
    factual scenarios. The seminar will conclude with a panel discussion on
    the merits of the fair use doctrine and its proper application in the
    digital environment.

    The presenters for the seminar are Kimberly B. Kelley Associate Provost
    and Executive Director of the Center for Intellectual Property and
    Copyright in the Digital Environment, University of Maryland University
    College, and Rodney J. Petersen, Director, Policy and Planning and Project
    NEThics, Office of Information Technology, University of Maryland, College
