MTSR 2015 - 9th Metadata and Semantics Research Conference

Date2015-09-09 - 2015-09-11


VenueManchester Metropolitan University, UK - United Kingdom UK - United Kingdom



Topics/Call fo Papers

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.
