MOTIVATION

The 12th International Conference on Metadata and Semantics Research (MTSR'18) will be held at Cyprus University of Technology in Cyprus, between 23-26 October 2018.
MTSR is an annual international inter-disciplinary conference which brings together academics, researchers and practitioners in the specialized fields of metadata, ontologies and semantics research. 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 Open Access Repositories and Digital Libraries, Cultural Informatics, Digital Humanities, 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.

AWARDS

There are two types of awards: the Best paper award and the Best student paper award, both sponsored by euroCRIS (http://www.eurocris.org/).

• Best paper award: This award will be presented to the authors of the best full research paper submitted and presented to the conference.

• Best student paper award: MTSR sponsors a paper competition to recognize excellence in a conference paper contribution whose primary author is a student (normally at a PhD or MRes level). The student is required to present the paper at the MTSR 2016 conference. Submissions are evaluated on their originality, scientific merits, structure, and clarity of composition.

The author of an awarded paper, and co-authors if any, will be entitled to:

• Receive a signed and stamped official award certificate by the conference organizers
• Promote their achievement on MTSR conference webpage, and MTSR Social Media
• Get invited to submit an extended and revised version of the awarded paper for publication in the International Journal of Metadata, Semantics and Ontologies (Inderscience) (http://www.inderscience.com/jhome.php?jcode=ijmso)
Each award comes with the prize of a free access/registration to next years’ MTSR, including all conference materials, together with the printed/digital conference proceedings
This voucher for each award for free registration is valid only for one author, in case of many co-authors, of the awarded paper, and only for the MTSR conference that follows the year after receiving the award.
