Today’s information integrations systems face real challenges of managing diverse data formats, disparate sources of content and need to derive knowledge from the content on multiple contexts. Current software tools that look at metadata are not sufficient to handle these problems. What is needed is semantic metadata from disparate sources that reveal context as well as non-obvious insights. A new concept which is known as context aware semantic metadata is paving the way to finally realize the full value of enterprise and scientific information. Once documents are properly annotated, it is possible for applications to automatically understand the context and meaning of the content thereby correct decisions can be made.
Syntactic metadata focuses on elements such as size of the document, location of a document or date of document creation which do not provide a level of understanding about what the document conveys or implies. In contrast, semantic metadata describes contextually relevant or domain-specific information about content, based on an enterprise-specific custom metadata model or ontology. Context aware semantic metadata represents any semantic metadata that can be used to characterize the situation of an entity, such as person, place, or object that is considered relevant to the interaction between user, application, services and/or network components.
Context aware semantic metadata management certainly includes traditional data management issues such as modeling, specification, generation, curation, storage and retrieval. Additional properties that are specific to metadata and its context, however, have an impact on its management. Therefore it will also include context and semantics based tasks in annotation, retrieval and management in the context of business, society, healthcare, geology, culture and so on. Information on demand ensures that real-time information is readily available for superior service and increased user satisfaction.
This edited book aims to address the current research and near future trends in metadata management in the dimension of semantics and contexts with the target of achieving the best information on demand interdisciplinary applications and services.
The objective of the proposed book is to compile a reference reading which encourages and facilitates the transfer of technologies and methodologies that intersect the three areas - Metadata, Semantic Web and Context Awareness. In order to do that, each book chapter would constitute an illustrative technique or a specific kind of application or a generic system that interplay with one or more of these three dimensions.
This edited book will be an ideal reference book at university levels to bachelors, masters, research students and faculties in several areas spanning from computer science, business management, information science and knowledge management. Also, it is a must read source for database practitioners and managers who want to unlock the hidden contextual knowledge from the voluminous unstructured data.
This reference handbook will invite submissions describing ongoing innovative work and applications on these interdisciplinary areas coving metadata, semantics and context awareness. Specifically, book chapters include, but not limited to:
Concepts and Techniques:
• Text, multimedia, real sense media and 3D media metadata standards for contextual semantics

Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit on or before June 10, 2010, a 2 to 3 page chapter proposal clearly explaining the missions and concerns of his proposed chapter, as a PDF or DOC file attachment to the editors (email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com ). The proposal should contain the following information:
1. Name of the book chapter
2. Name of author(s), email address and affiliation
3. Technical area covered in the chapter
4. Main contributions which will be made by author(s)
5. Technical novelty of the contribution
6. Detailed table of contents of the chapter
Authors of accepted proposals will be notified by July 10, 2010 about the status of their proposals and sent chapter guidelines. Full chapters are expected to be submitted by September 10, 2010. All submitted chapters will be reviewed on a double-blind review basis.
This book is scheduled to be published by IGI Global (formerly Idea Group Inc.), publisher of the “Information Science Reference” , (formerly Idea Group Reference), “Medical Information Science Reference,” “Business Science Reference,” and “Engineering Science Reference” imprints.
