  • Are there Dublin Core enabled search engines?
  • What is a vocabulary-enabled search service?
  • Has anyone measured the costs and benefits before and after Dublin Core has been adopted and used to add metadata to content?
  • What is faceted search and is it really a new technology?
  • Are there some compelling case studies that demonstrate the best practices in metadata and search?

These are some of the questions that the first in a planned series of workshops organized by the DCMI Global Corporate Circles Special Interest Group will address.

This all day workshop will focus on internal or site search technology, as opposed to external, Internet or web search technology (although some technology is applicable to both internal and external search applications). There will be presentations by experts, implementation case studies from our community, demonstrations by search technology vendors, and lots of time for Q&A with our experts, practitioners, vendors, and among ourselves.

Plan to stay on for the Dublin Core 2003 conference which will include a meeting of the Global Corporate Circles Special Interest Group, and help plan future workshops and events. Ideas already raised include a focus on practical issues related to implementing Dublin Core in large organizations, personalization and portals, and metadata creation tools.
