Special Track on Metadata and Semantics for Agriculture, Food & Environment (AgroSEM 15): New submission deadline is 5/6/2015!

The new submission deadline for AgroSEM is now the 5th of June 2015.

About AgroSEM'15

The Special Track on Metadata and Semantics for Agriculture, Food & Environment (AgroSEM’15) will take place between 9-11 of September 2015, hosted at the Manchester Metropolitan University, Manchester, United Kingdom. As usual, the Special Track is collocated with the Metadata and Semantics Research (MTSR) Conference and this is also the case this year: The 8th Edition of the Special Track on Metadata and Semantics for Agriculture, Food & Environment is hosted as part of MTSR 2015.

Track Theme

This track aims to bring together researchers and practitioners that are dealing with theoretical, methodological, experimental and application-oriented aspects of knowledge engineering, applied to agriculture, food and environment. It aims to serve as a discussion forum where researchers and 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.

Paper Submissions 

If you want to submit your research paper, you will need to do so by May 19th 2015 (using the Springer LNCS style, PDF file submission) until the 5th of June2015. The following types of presentation are invited:

  • full papers (12 pages) reporting complete research
  • short papers (6 pages) presenting ongoing or preliminary research


If your paper is approved by the reviewers (and you have registered to the Conference), it will be included in the Conference Proceedings to be published by Springer in the Communications in Computer and Information Science (CCIS) book series (7899). CCIS is abstracted/indexed in DBLP, Google Scholar, EI-Compendex, Mathematical Reviews, SCImago, Scopus. CCIS volumes are also submitted for the inclusion in ISI Proceedings. 

Revised and extended versions of best papers will be published in selected international journals, including the International Journal of Metadata, Semantics and Ontologies (Inderscience), the Program: Electronic library and information systems (Emerald) and the International Information & Library Review (Taylor & Francis) (list incomplete).
