MOTIVATION

Handling metadata and semantics in open access repositories and
infrastructures is becoming increasingly challenging due to emerging
requirements like repositories of scientific data sets, interoperability
of repositories with external services and applications, capturing
research context (projects, funding programmes, research infrastructures)
in addition to research output, metadata management in research
infrastructures across disciplines, application of semantic web
technologies in repositories, digital preservation.
Taming the complexity of metadata and semantics in open access
infrastructures is a major challenge and the subject of intense ongoing
activities worldwide. The impact of these efforts can be very significant,
including aspects like enhanced interoperability of open access
repositories with repositories, aggregators as well as external services
and applications, reduced cost of information exchange and integration,
wide re-use of repository data and services across disciplines and
availability of high quality, reliable value-added services over
repositories.

AIM

The aim of this Special Track is to bring together researchers and
practitioners that are working on open access repositories and data
management in research infrastructures.
The track will serve as a discussion 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 access
repositories and infrastructures.

TOPICS

Topics include but are not limited to the following:

- Information standards and specifications for open access repositories
- Information exchange, aggregation and integration in open access
infrastructures
- Interoperability in open access infrastructures
- Open access infrastructures for scientific data
- Metadata schemas and application profiles
- Multilingual vocabularies, taxonomies, glossaries and thesauri
- Support of advanced features for repository metadata: compound objects,
complex relationships, handling heterogeneous content, versioning, etc.
- Information mining and extraction in open access repositories
- Application of semantic web technologies in open access repositories and
infrastructures
- Metadata quality in repositories and infrastructures
- Mechanisms and infrastructures for persistent identification of entities
(e.g. digital objects, people, organisations) and authority control in
metadata
- Digital preservation workflows and mechanisms and impact on metadata
- Metadata and knowledge representation in research infrastructures across
disciplines
- Metadata and semantics for grey literature repositories
- Metadata and semantics for research information – interoperability
of open access repositories and CRIS
- Value-added services based on repository metadata
