10th Annual Open Forum for Metadata Registries

The 10th Annual Open Forum for Metadata Registries will take place in New York from July 9-11, 2007. For further information, please visit http://metadataopenforum.org/

Participants will hear a mix of plenaries, case studies, implementation experiences, practical applications, research projects, and advanced development activities. The main theme of the meeting is the value added by using several standards together in applications. Too often, people become adherents to a standard, and start to believe it can solve all the world’s problems. The purpose of the conference is to show that the opposite is true. Using standards for the purpose for which they were designed and using multiple ones in appropriate ways is a more effective approach.
