Continuing the successful mission of previous MTSR Conferences (MTSR'05, MTSR'07, MTSR'09, MTSR'10, MTSR'11, MTSR’12, MTSR'13 and MTSR’14), the ninth International Conference on Metadata and Semantics Research (MTSR'15) aims to bring together scholars and practitioners that share a common interest in the interdisciplinary field of metadata, semantics, linked data and ontologies. Participants will share novel knowledge and best practice in the implementation of these semantic technologies across diverse types of Information Environments and applications. These include Cultural Informatics; Open Access Repositories & Digital Libraries; E-learning applications; Search Engine Optimization & Information Retrieval; Research Information Systems and Infrastructures; e-Science and e-Social Science applications; Agriculture, Food and Environment; Bio-Health & Medical Information Systems.
Scope and Topics
Contributions are welcome on every topic related to Metadata and their relationships with Ontologies, Semantic Web, Open-Access Repositories & Digital Libraries, Knowledge Management and Software Engineering, including but not limited to:
Typology of metadata and metadata implementations
The value and cost of metadata
Quality evaluation in the use of Metadata
Empirical studies on metadata and/or ontologies usage
Languages and Framework for Metadata Management
SGML, XML, UML in theory and practiceLanguages and Frameworks for Ontology ManagementMetadata and the Semantic WebMetadata and Knowledge ManagementMetadata and Software EngineeringMetadata application of Semantic Web technologiesOntologies and Ontology-based Knowledge Management Systems
Case StudiesMetadata and ontologies for librarianship, management of historical archives and archeological researchMetadata and ontologies for the design of innovative products and processesMetadata and ontologies for health, biological and clinical information managementMetadata and ontologies in finance, tourism and public administrationsMetadata and ontologies in industryMetadata and ontologies in educationMetadata and ontologies in agriculture, food and environment

- full papers (12 pages) reporting complete research
- short papers (6 pages) presenting ongoing or preliminary research
- posters (4 pages)
Papers should be original and not previously submitted to other Conferences or Journals. All submissions will be reviewed on the basis of relevance, originality, importance and clarity following a double-blind peer review process. Submitted papers have to follow the LNCS proceedings formatting style and guidelines. Authors of accepted papers will be asked to register to the Conference and present their work in the form of either oral presentation or poster presentation. The Conference welcomes Workshops and Tutorial on any issues concerning the main themes of MTSR such as metadata, ontologies, semantic Web, knowledge management, software engineering and digital libraries.
