The aim of the Special Track on Metadata and Semantics for Agriculture, Food & Environment
of MTSR-10 is to bring together researchers and practitioners that are working on
agricultural and food & environment knowledge production, organization, and exchange
from a Semantic Web perspective.

It aims to serve as a 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 & 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 organisation
* Knowledge repositories and archives
* Ontology approaches, models, theories, and languages
* Ontology development, integration, lifecycle, and evaluation
* Management of large ontology-driven knowledge bases
