APPLICATIONS <http://www.ionio.gr/labs/dbis/mtsr2018/>

Part of the 12th International Conference on Metadata and Semantics
Research (MTSR 2018) <http://www.mtsr-conf.org/>, October 23 – 26 2018,
Limassol, Cyprus.

NEW Submission deadline: JULY 1st, 2018

Proceedings will be published in Springer CCIS series


Cultural Heritage collections are essential knowledge infrastructures that
provide a solid representation of the historical background of human
communities. These knowledge infrastructures are constructed from and
integrate cultural information derived from diverse memory institutions, mainly
libraries, archives and museums. Each individual community has spent a lot
of effort in order to develop, support and promote its own  systems, tools
and metadata for the management of cultural information, mainly related to
its particular resources and use.

In this framework, the management of the cultural information has to deal
with challenges related to (i) metadata modeling, specification,
standardization, extraction, (semantic) enrichment, mapping, integration,
effective use, and evaluation, (ii) knowledge representation as
to provide the context for unambiguously interpreting metadata, and (iii)
information integration from different contexts for the provision of
integrated access, reuse and advanced services to users.

At the same time, there are also inter-domain efforts targeted to
semantically align data (research data, educational data, public sector
information etc.) to cultural information. New challenges are also emerged
from the need to incorporate cultural information into the new publication
paradigms, where a variety of resources (data, metadata, processes,
results, etc) are linked and integrated, providing better shareability and
reusability. Currently, Linked (Open) Data, as part of the Semantic Web
Technology, is having a major role in modernizing cultural heritage
collections. Providing to users the possibility to re-use and integrate
data into their own systems is currently more than a need, given that
transparency and access to information is a prerequisite. A critical factor
to the effectiveness of many aspects of all the above efforts is the
quality of metadata, as interpreted by its context and use and evaluated by
the proper measures and methods. Many institutions and aggregate
infrastructures are dealing with the poor quality of metadata that
inevitably results in poor integration, search and reuse, while their
enrichment, in terms of  contextualization, co-referencing, alignment, etc,
is really challenging.

The aim of this Special Track is to maintain a dialogue where researchers
and practitioners working on all the aspects of the cultural information
will come together and exchange ideas about open issues at all stages of
the cultural heritage information life cycle. The track also welcomes works
related to semantics and applications for new approaches to cultural
information publication and sharing, as well as to interlinking to other
datasets published in the Semantic Web universe.


The papers in this special track should be original and of high quality,
addressing issues in areas

such as:

* Cultural Heritage metadata models, standards, ontologies, knowledge
organization and representation systems

* Cultural Heritage information integration, interoperability and mappings

* Automated extraction of metadata, entities, and patterns from Cultural
Heritage resources

* Metadata manual or automated (Semantic) enrichment and search

* Metadata quality metrics, tools and services

* Linked Open Data approaches in the Cultural Heritage domain

* Publication, linking and citation of Cultural Heritage information and

* Large volume content management

* 3D models-indexing, storage and retrieval approaches

* Infrastructures for sharing content

* Digital Curation workflows and models

* Provenance and preservation metadata for Cultural Heritage digital


Authors can submit either full papers (12 pages) or short papers (6 pages).
Submitted papers have to follow the LNCS proceedings formatting style and
guidelines <http://www.mtsr-conf.org/index.php/paper-submission>.

The submitted papers will undergo the same peer review as the submissions
for MTSR 2018 and accepted contributions will be published in the MTSR 2018
proceedings (Springer CCIS series <https://www.springer.com/series/7899>).
Authors of accepted papers will be asked to register to the Conference and
present their work.

Authors of the best papers will be invited to submit extended and revised
versions of their papers for possible publication in selected international
journals, including the International Journal of Metadata, Semantics and
Ontologies (Inderscience), and Program (Emerald).

More information on submission can be found at the MTSR 2018 call for
papers web page <http://www.mtsr-conf.org/index.php/call-for-papers>.
