First outline of topics:

  • News Exchange and Editorial System Vendors
    IPTC invites system vendors to discuss with news providers issues in the workflow of news exchange: What kinds of metadata (structures, formats) are used or needed by them, what missing things should be added to IPTC standards, the role of advertisment in the IPTC formats, other formats/standards they have to deal with.
  • Metadata in 2017: how values are created, how metadata is communicated, received and processed.
    IPTC will discuss new ways of adding knowledge to news content.
