November 27-29, 2014
University of Applied Sciences, Karlsruhe, Germany

****Important Dates****
• July 31th 2014: Paper submission
• August 17th 2014: Acceptance/rejection notification
• August 31st 2014: Camera-ready papers due
• November 27th - 29th 2014: Conference at University of Applied Sciences, Karlsruhe, Germany

Continuing the successful mission of previous MTSR Conferences (MTSR'05,
MTSR'07, MTSR'09, MTSR'10, MTSR'11, MTSR12 and MTSR'13), the eighth
International Conference on Metadata and Semantics Research (MTSR'14)
aims to bring together scholars and practitioners that share a common
interest in the interdisciplinary field of metadata, linked data and
ontologies. Participants will share novel knowledge and best practice in
the implementation of these semantic technologies across diverse types
of Information Environments and applications. These include Cultural
Informatics; Open Access Repositories & Digital Libraries; E-learning
applications; Search Engine Optimization & Information Retrieval;
Research Information Systems and Infrastructures; e-Science and e-Social
Science applications; Agriculture, Food and Environment; Bio-Health &
Medical Information Systems.

****Scope and topics****

You can bring in your ideas for tutorials. If you are interested in a
particular topic, please let us know.

****Paper submission****
Interested authors can submit to EasyChair
The following types of presentation are invited:
• full papers (10-15 pages) reporting complete research
• short papers (4-8 pages) presenting ongoing or preliminary research
• posters (2 pages)
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
metadata, ontologies, semantic Web, knowledge management, software
engineering and digital libraries.

Proceedings will be published by Springer in the Communications in
Computer and Information Science (CCIS) book 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), and Program:
Electronic library and information systems (Emerald) (list incomplete).

Best paper award
This award will be presented to the authors of the best full paper
submitted and presented to the conference.
Best student paper award
The 8th MTSR 14 conference 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 MTSR2014 conference. Submissions are evaluated
on their originality, scientific merits, structure, and clarity of

-We look forward to see you in Karlsruhe, Germany.
