Last week, several IE members (in fact almost a full delegation including 2 senior members and 2 PhD students) were in Izmir, Turkey, to attend the Fifth Metadata and Semantics Research Conference (MTSR 2011), an event for researchers in the area of metadata and semantics with an inter-disciplinary focus. This year’s edition was hosted by the YasarUniversity and IE was, as usual, involved in the Organization committee, Scientific committee and Proceedings edition (as in previous editions, MTSR2011 proceedings have been published in the Springer’s CCIS Series).
Below, two videos from from the opening ceremony…
1) Canzonetta sull’aria from Mozart’s Le Nozze de Figaro to end the short opening concert by 2 Arts School students:
2) Miguel Angel Sicilia introducing keynote tutorial speaker Nikos Korfiatis:
