Hey all,

If you are doing Wikidata + GLAM looks like a great opportunity!

Cheers,

Alex

Possibly of interest; it would certainly be good to have Wikidata
represented there in some way:

SPECIAL TRACK on METADATA & SEMANTICS for CULTURAL COLLECTIONS &
APPLICATIONS

Part of the 12th International Conference on Metadata and Semantics
Research (MTSR 2018),
October 23 –  2018, Limassol, Cyprus.

Submission deadline: June 15th, 2018
Proceedings will be published in Springer CCIS series

AIM AND SCOPE
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
conceptualization 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.


TOPICS
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 resources
* 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
resources

SUBMISSION GUIDELINES
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.
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). 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).


IMPORTANT DATES
June 15th, 2018: Submission deadline
July 27th, 2018: Notification of Acceptance/rejection
August 24th, 2018: Camera-ready papers due
October 23rd – October 26th, 2018: Conference at Cyprus University of
Technology, Limassol, Cyprus
