10th International Conference on Metadata and Semantics Research
22-25 November 2016, Rome, Italy
The International Conference on Metadata and Semantics Research (MTSR'16) will be held at the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) in Rome (Italy) on November 22-25, 2016. MTSR’16 celebrates the conference’s 10th anniversary with the theme of
bridging the past, present and future of metadata,
data and semantic technologies
The organisers encourage prospective authors and conference participants to reflect on the following questions:
- How the documented evidence produced over the past years can be used as a driver for innovating management and processing of data and information?
- How close are we from the vision of building powerful learning systems that will meet the needs of modern societies through high quality data infrastructures and data-driven interfaces?
- What are the main challenges that modern metadata and semantics research has not addressed yet?
MTSR'16 brings together scholars and practitioners with common interest in the interdisciplinary fields of metadata, data and semantics. The conference provides an opportunity for participants to share knowledge and novel approaches in the implementation of semantic technologies across diverse types of information environments and applications. These include Cultural Informatics, Open Access Repositories and Digital Libraries, E-learning applications, Search Engine Optimization and Information Retrieval, Research Information Systems and Infrastructures, e-Science and e-Social Science applications, Agriculture, Food and Environment, Bio-Health & Medical Information Systems.
Contributions are encouraged on this year’s theme "Learning from the Past, Building the Future", including contributions covering, but not limited to, metadata in general, ontologies, Semantic Web, linked data, data repositories, digital libraries, knowledge management, software engineering, and the following list (see Call for Papers ).
