The 4th International Workshop on Metadata and Semantics for Agriculture, Food and Environment will be a special track of the Metadata and Semantics Research Conference (MTSR) 2011. This will bring together researchers and practitioners working on agricultural, food-related and environmental knowledge production, organization, and exchange from a Semantic Web perspective and in an international discussion forum.

The Agriculture Information Management Standards (AIMS) newsletter brought this news to our attention in their article, “Metadata and Semantics for Agriculture, Food and Environment.” In this discussion forum, interested experts will present the results of their work and establish liaisons with other groups that are working on related subjects.

This event is scheduled for Wednesday, October 12, 2011 – Friday, October 14, 2011 in Izmir, Turkey. Check out their website for more information.
