The MTSR 16 Conference will have a special track on Metadata & Semantics for Open Repositories, Research Information Systems and Data Infrastructures.
The sharing and re-use of research information is becoming an increasingly important aspect of scientific activity. Text publications are traditionally the main way of publishing research output and challenges still exist for their optimal recording and dissemination. Scientific communities increasingly recognise the immense significance of storing, discovering, processing, preserving and re-using data sets as well as other types of research objects like workflows and software. Metadata is a critical factor in this area.
The aim of this Special Track is to serve as a forum for experts to present recent results and experiences, establish liaisons with other groups and reflect on the state-of-the-art of metadata and semantic aspects of open repositories, research information systems and data infrastructures.
The deadline for submitting papers is May 15th, 2016. Interested authors can submit to EasyChair. The following types of presentation are invited:
* full papers (12 pages) reporting complete research
* short papers (6 pages) presenting ongoing or preliminary research
