Special Track on Metadata & Semantics for Open Repositories, Research
Information Systems and Data Infrastructures MTSR 2016

** Aim and Scope **

The sharing and re-use of research information is becoming an
increasingly important aspect of scientific activity. Text
publications are traditionally the main way of publishing research
output and challenges still exist for their optimal recording and
dissemination. Scientific communities increasingly recognise the
immense significance of storing, discovering, processing, preserving
and re-using data sets as well as other types of research objects like
workflows and software. Furthermore, Public Sector Information,
potentially valuable for research purposes, is provided openly by
governments although not always in forms that enable re-use.

Metadata is a critical factor in this area, actually providing the
means to promote black-box digital files to discoverable and re-usable
objects. Rich metadata about research output needs to be recorded and
disseminated, including contextual and provenance information (for
example, relationships of publications and data sets with people,
organisations, funding information, facilities and equipment). For
certain use cases, metadata needs to be uniformly accessed across
research domains, to foster collaboration and re-use of data sets
among different disciplines and vertical communities. However, the
recording and utilisation of domain-specific information is also
significant in many circumstances. A range of open research and
technical issues have to be addressed towards these goals, while it is
also recognised that international harmonisation on standards and
technologies is of critical importance.

The aim of this Special Track is to serve as a forum for experts to
present recent results and experiences, establish liaisons with other
groups and reflect on the state-of-the-art of metadata and semantic
aspects of open repositories, research information systems and data
infrastructures.

** Topics **

Topics include but are not limited to contributions dealing with the
following issues:

* Metadata, knowledge representation and relevant standards in open
access repositories, research information systems and research
infrastructures
* Semantic interoperability and information integration in open access
repositories, research information systems and research
infrastructures
* Application of semantic web technologies in open access
repositories, research information systems and research
infrastructures
* Data infrastructures (e.g. scientific data, public sector information)
* Contextual and provenance metadata in open access repositories,
research information systems and research infrastructures
* Metadata interoperability for data infrastructures across disciplines
* Metadata quality in open access repositories, research information
systems and research infrastructures
* Mechanisms, tools and infrastructures for shared services in open
access repositories, research information systems and research
infrastructures
* Digital preservation workflows and mechanisms and impact on metadata
* Value-added services based on open access repositories, research
information systems and research infrastructures

** Important dates **

* May 15th 2016: Paper submission deadline
* June 30th 2016: Acceptance/rejection notification
* July 10th 2016: Camera-ready papers due
* November 22th-25th 2016: Conference at Food and Agriculture
Organization of the United Nations (Rome, Italy)

** Submissions **

Interested authors can submit to EasyChair
(https://easychair.org/account/signin.cgi?key=35520254.WZiwH12oSYOWyECx)

The following types of presentation are invited:

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

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.


** Publication **

The submissions to the Special Track will be reviewed by at least two
members of the Program Committee.

Accepted papers will be published Proceedings will be published by
Springer in the Communications in Computer and Information Science
(CCIS) book series (http://www.springer.com/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).


** Special Track Chairs **

* Imma Subirats, Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (Italy)
* Nikos Houssos, RedLink (Greece)

** About MTSR'16 **

The 10th Metadata and Semantics Research Conference  will be hosted by
Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations  from 22 to 25
November, 2016. MTSR'16 aims to bring together scholars and
practitioners that share a common interest in the interdisciplinary
field of metadata, semantics, linked data and ontologies.

** Still in preparation **
