**Aim and Scope**
The aim of the track on European and National Projects of the 13th MTSR 2019 Conference is to promote collaboration, networking, knowledge sharing and output dissemination among EU and non-EU projects related to digital libraries, open repositories, cultural heritage, metadata, semantics, ontologies, research information systems, data infrastructures, linked and big data research. In particular, the objectives of this track are:
● To bring together representatives from different EU and non-EU projects for the purpose of knowledge sharing, problem solving, collaboration and brainstorming.
● To provide the opportunity for representatives of these projects to engage with conference participants, disseminate research output and receive feedback, or seek collaboration and expertise.
● To identify new opportunities for EU and non-EU-funded digital libraries, cultural heritage and open repositories research, metadata, semantics and linked data research.
The following types of submissions are invited:
● Full papers (12 pages, CCIS format) reporting completed research
● Short papers (6 pages, CCIS format) presenting ongoing or preliminary research
● Posters (4 pages)
● Proposals for Tutorials, Workshops, Demos, Panels and Oral presentations (1-3 pages providing a description)
Submissions should be original and not previously submitted, published and under review 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 (https://www.springer.com/gp/computer-science/lncs/conference-proceedings-guidelines). Authors of accepted submissions will be asked to register to the Conference and present their work in the form of either oral presentation or poster presentation.
Interested authors can submit to EasyChair.
Proceedings will be published by Springer in CCIS (Communications in Computer and Information Science) book series (https://www.springer.com/series/7899). 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) (http://www.ingentaconnect.com/content/ind/ijmso) and Data Technologies and Applications (previously published as Program (Emerald).
There are two types of awards: the Best Paper award and the Best Student Paper award, both sponsored by euroCRIS (http://www.eurocris.org/).
● 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: 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 2019 conference. Submissions are evaluated on their originality, scientific merits, structure, and clarity of composition.
The author of an awarded paper, and co-authors if any, will be entitled to:
● Receive a signed and stamped official award certificate by the conference organizers
● Promote their achievement on MTSR conference webpage, and MTSR Social Media
● Get invited to submit an extended and revised version of the awarded paper for publication in the International Journal of Metadata, Semantics and Ontologies (Inderscience) (http://www.inderscience.com/jhome.php?jcode=ijmso);
○ Each award comes with the price of a free access/registration to next year’s MTSR. Including all conference materials, together with the printed/digital conference proceedings.
○ This voucher, in case of many co-authors, is valid only for one author of the awarded paper, and only for the MTSR conference that follows the year after receiving the award.
