The Dublin Core Metadata Initiative began as a loose association of
individuals formulating consensus standards for resource discovery. As use of DC
metadata has spread, the need for a global and independent host organization has
increased. The DCMI Affiliate program is intended to promote and support DCMI
through financial support, localization and promotion, and governance.
Stuart Weibel will summarize the main features of the program, and lead a
discussion and question & answer period with a panel of representatives of
current DCMI affiliates and the audience.
