The Fifth Annual Metadata Summit is for experts, by experts — the program will amplify the importance of data, provide a high level forum for discussion, and attract key participants. For more information about the Metadata Summit, please click here.

The music industry has a great way of creating standards, but not necessarily implementing them exactly in the same way. How big is the disconnect? What causes problems? What is being done or can be done to resolve the disconnect? Mark Isherwood from DDEX will lead a thoughtful and provocative discussion with featured speakers and the audience.

Metadata Summit Supporting Sponsors include Berklee Institute for Creative Entrepreneurship/Open Music Initiative, DataArt, Digimarc, NPREX, OpenPlay, Quantone, SOCAN, SoundExchange, and TiVo.
