MOTIVATION

Continuing the successful mission of previous MTSR Conferences (MTSR'05, MTSR'07, MTSR'09, MTSR'10, MTSR'11, MTSR’12, MTSR'13 and MTSR’14), the ninth International Conference on Metadata and Semantics Research (MTSR'15) aims to bring together scholars and practitioners that share a common interest in the interdisciplinary field of metadata, semantics, 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.

PAPER SUBMISSION

Interested authors can submit to EasyChair (https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=mtsr2015)
The following types of presentation are invited:

- full papers (12 pages) reporting complete research
- short papers (6 pages) presenting ongoing or preliminary research
- posters (4 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 the main themes of MTSR such as metadata, ontologies, semantic Web, knowledge management, software engineering and digital libraries.

AWARDS

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

The MTSR 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 MTSR2015 conference.
Submissions are evaluated on their originality, scientific merits, structure, and clarity of composition.
