Reviews, DBLP, Google Scholar. CCIS volumes are also submitted for inclusion in 
ISI Proceedings.

Other Publication Opportunities

Selected papers might be considered for a revised and extended version to be
published in a range of international journals, including the International Journal 
of Metadata, Semantics and Ontologies (Inderscience) and Data Technologies and 
Applications (Emerald), previously published as Program.


There are two types of awards: the Best Paper award and the Best Student Paper
award, both sponsored by euroCRIS (

- Best Paper award: This award will be presented to the authors of the best full
research paper submitted and presented to the conference.
-  Best Student Paper award: MTSR sponsors a paper competition to recognize
excellence in a conference paper contribution whose primary author is a student 
(normally at a PhD or MRes level). The student is required to present the paper 
at the MTSR 2022 conference. Submissions are evaluated on their originality, 
scientific merits, structure, and clarity of composition.

The author of an awarded paper, and co-authors if any, will be entitled to:
- Receive a signed and stamped official award certificate by the conference
- Promote their achievement on MTSR conference webpage, and MTSR Social Media
- Get invited to submit an extended and revised version of the awarded paper for
publication in the International Journal of Metadata, Semantics and Ontologies 

* Each award comes with the price of a free access/registration to next year’s
Including all conference materials, together with the printed/digital conference
* This voucher, in case of many co-authors, is valid only for one author of the
awarded paper, and only for the MTSR conference that follows the year after receiving
