MTSR 2018

The 12th International Conference on Metadata and Semantics Research (MTSR'18) will be held at Cyprus University of Technology in Cyprus, between 23-26 October 2018.

MTSR is an annual international inter-disciplinary conference, which brings together academics, researchers and practitioners in the specialized fields of metadata, ontologies and semantics research. The conference provides an opportunity for participants to share knowledge and novel approaches in the implementation of semantic technologies across diverse types of information environments and applications. These include Open Access Repositories and Digital Libraries, Cultural Informatics, Digital Humanities, E-learning applications, Search Engine Optimization and Information Retrieval, Research Information Systems and Infrastructures, e-Science and e-Social Science applications, Agriculture, Food and Environment, Bio-Health & Medical Information Systems.

THE SERPENTINE GALLERIES
‘From Institution to Platform: Organisational Structures and Arts Practices in Network Cultures’
This is a three-year funded, full-time PhD bursary for a collaborative doctorate between The Serpentine Galleries and the Centre for the Study of the Networked Image in the School of Arts and Creative Industries at London South Bank University.

The Project
The Serpentine Galleries in London is one of the world’s foremost contemporary art and architecture institutions,which is in the process of developing a digital strategy within its organisation. One problem the Serpentine has identified is a lack of capacity for the arts to influence the direction of new technologies because organisational networks, through which new ways of thinking about the future of the arts can travel and flourish, remain nascent. One of the overarching issues for the research would be to identify the barriers to greater art and technology cooperation at the institutional level and to identify practices which could act as catalysts for future cooperation on an inter-institutional level.
The person appointed will undertake a three year full time research project, with either a practice-based or discursive methodology involving fieldwork at the Serpentine Galleries, leading to the
submission of a thesis/portfolio submission in 2021.

The Research
We welcome expressions of interest and proposals from suitably qualified persons for a research project which supports the Serpentine’s need to understand how its emerging digital strategy can
learn from the digital strategies pursued in the public arts field over the last decade and how might it enmesh with and impact upon public policy and practice. Further we welcome research which asks how R&D functions within the arts/institutional space, and what are its precedents in the fields of both art and computer science.
The research is interested in the following questions:
-What might cultural distribution look like within the framework of digital curatorial practice/production and digital/networked art practices?
-What does an audience for contemporary art look like in a distributed system?
-What role might artists and cultural practitioners play in the early
stage development of advanced technologies?

Closing Date for Application: 23 April

Interview Dates: 1-3 May
