AIM & TOPICS

 

The 6th Edition of the Special Track on Metadata and Semantics for
Agriculture, 

Food & Environment is hosted as part of MTSR 2013, and aims to bring
together 

researchers and practitioners that are working on agricultural, food-related
and 

environmental knowledge production, organization, and exchange from a
Semantic Web 

perspective. 

 

It aims to serve as a discussion forum where interested experts will 

present the results of their work, and establish liaisons with other groups
that 

are working on related subjects. In addition, it aims to outline the rich
potential 

of these subjects as an application field for advanced metadata- and
semantic-driven 

systems and services.  

 

 

 

Topics include but are not limited to contributions dealing with the
following

issues in the context of agriculture, food & environment:

 

* Information standards and specifications

* Metadata schemas and application profiles

* Multilingual vocabularies, taxonomies, glossaries and thesauri

* Metadata generation, harvesting, and exchange

* Knowledge acquisition, elicitation and extraction

* Infrastructures, systems and services for knowledge organization

* Knowledge repositories and archives

* Ontology approaches, models, theories, and languages

* Ontology development, integration, lifecycle, and evaluation

* Management of large ontology-driven knowledge bases
