Metadata and Semantics for Agriculture, Food and Environment

The 4th International Workshop on Metadata and Semantics for Agriculture, Food and Environment is hosted as a special track of MTSR 2011, and aims to bring together researchers and practitioners that are working on agricultural, food-related and environmental knowledge production, organization, and exchange from a Semantic Web perspective.

It is an international discussion forum, where interested experts will present the results of their work, and establish liaisons with other groups that are working on related subjects. In addition, it aims to outline the rich potential of these subjects as an application field for advanced metadata- and semantic-driven systems and services. Topics include but are not limited to contributions dealing with the following issues in the context of agriculture, food and environment:

  • Information standards and specifications
  • Metadata schemas and application profiles
  • Multilingual vocabularies, taxonomies, glossaries and thesauri
  • Metadata generation, harvesting, and exchange
  • Knowledge acquisition, elicitation and extraction
  • Infrastructures, systems and services for knowledge organization
  • Knowledge repositories and archives
  • Ontology approaches, models, theories, and languages
  • Ontology development, integration, lifecycle, and evaluation
  • Management of large ontology-driven knowledge bases
