Call For Papers

** Aim and Scope **

Ontologies are the central components of semantic tools and have been present in the art and cultural area for some time. For instance, the CIDOC Conceptual Reference Model (CRM) supports the integration, communication and the exchange of differently structured information from the cultural heritage field. Meanwhile, there are some projects that already use these semantic technologies. For instance, a project of the British Museum (http://collection.britishmuseum.org), allows the collection of all available data as Linked Open Data (LOD). Also, the implemented EU project Europeana (http://www.europeana.eu/portal/) focuses on the global accessibility of cultural information as LOD. According to the EU Commission, a prominent role for the future of the European knowledge and information society is played by sharing the electronic content. In 2009, the German Federal Government had decided to create a German Digital Library (Deutsche Digitale Bibliothek, www.deutsche-digitale-bibliothek.de), which should link numerous German cultural and scientific facilities and integrate them at European level in the Europeana.

The aim of this Special Track is to discuss the role of semantics and metadata in combination with the personalization and adaptation of information and knowledge. We invite the community to a discussion in which we will try to find new creative ways to handle semantic technologies in cultural heritage, especially in digital humanities and digital curation. Furthermore, DHC aims at improving the exchange of ideas between different communities involved in research concerning, among other history, educational science, digital humanities, visualization, machine learning, information retrieval, data mining, HCI, etc. The Special Track is especially intended for researchers working on multidisciplinary tasks who want to discuss problems and synergies.


**Topics**

The topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following aspects:

* Semantic-based data mining and information retrieval
* Semantic-based profiling, clustering and collaborative filtering
* Use of Semantic-based technologies in cultural heritage
* Information Discovery Systems and Recommendations
* Integration of metadata and semantic research into digital humanities and digital curation
* Open Repositories and Research Infrastructures

The participants are also encouraged to address the following questions:

**Important Dates**

*July 10th 2017: Paper submission deadline (extended)
*July 31st, 2017: Notification of acceptance
*August 27th, 2017: Camera-ready papers due
*November 28th –December 1st, 2017: Conference in Tallinn University, Tallinn (Estonia)


**Paper Submissions**

Interested authors can submit to https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=mtsr2017

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. Submissions associated by any MTSR member (e.g. Chairs and PC members of MTSR or any of its Tracks) will follow a double-blind peer review process by an independent review committee.

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.


**Conference Proceedings**

Proceedings will be published by Springer in Vol. 755 of the Communications in Computer and Information Science (CCIS) book series. CCIS is abstracted/indexed in Scopus, SCImago, EI-Compendex, Mathematical Reviews, DBLP, Google Scholar. CCIS volumes are also submitted for the inclusion in ISI Proceedings.


**Other Publication Opportunities**

Selected papers might be considered for a revised and extended version to be published in a range of international journals, including the International Journal of Metadata, Semantics and Ontologies (Inderscience) and Program (Emerald).


**Awards**

There are two types of awards: the Best Paper Award and the Best Student Paper Award, both sponsored by euroCRIS.

*Best paper award: This award will be presented to the authors of the best full research paper submitted and presented at the conference.
*Best student paper award: MTSR 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 MTSR 2017 conference.
Submissions are evaluated on their originality, scientific merits, structure, and clarity of composition.
