ΑΙΜ / SCOPE

The sharing and re-use of research information is becoming an increasingly important aspect of scientific activity. Text publications are – and will be at least for the near future – the predominant way of publishing research output and challenges still exist for their optimal recording and dissemination. Meanwhile, scientific communities 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. A key requirement is capturing and disseminating rich descriptions of research output in standard, semantically clear forms, including contextual and provenance information, such as relationships of publications and data sets with people, organisations, funding information, facilities and equipment. This metadata needs to be some extent independent of a particular research domain, to foster collaboration and re-use of data sets across disciplines and vertical communities, while still allowing the recording and utilisation of domain-specific information. A range of open issues have to be addressed towards these goals.

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 aspectsof open repositories, research information systems and data infrastructures.

SUBMISSIONS

Interested authors can submit either full papers (12 pages) or short papers (6 pages) reporting on either mature or ongoing research. Papers should be original and not previously submitted to other venues. Submission will be available through the EasyChair submission system.

If you haven't an EasyChair account yet, you'll be asked to create it before you can access the MTSR'13 page.

PUBLICATION

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

Accepted papers will be published in the book of MTSR'12 proceedings by Springer (CCIS Series). The proceedings will be abstracted/indexed in: Scopus, EI-Compendex, DBLP, Google Scholar, Mathematical Reviews, SCImago. 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), and Program: Electronic library and information systems (Emerald) (list incomplete)
