Next EC SIG meeting

The next meeting of will be a joint meeting between the Metadata SIG and the EC SIG. The meeting will focus on two standards that are of interest to both communities - namely METS (the Metadata Encoding and Transmission Standard) and Topic maps.

The programme will include:

  • Introduction to the SIGs: an overview of the domain covered by each of the SIGs and why these standards are relevant to both of them.
  • Update on the IEEE Learning Technology Standards Committee's work towards a content aggregation standard, and how this is relevant to Topic Maps and METS.
  • Overview of METS and how it is used.
  • Overview of Topic Maps and how they are used.
There is no charge for attending the meeting and lunch will be provided.
