The First on-Line conference on Metadata and Semantics Research (MTSR'05) aims at bringing together researchers and practitioners that share a common interest in metadata, its representation, its semantics and its diverse applications to Information Systems.

Concretely, a focus is given to four interconnected research areas: Semantic Web and Information Systems, Reusable Learning Objects applications, Knowledge Management approaches in Information Systems and concepts, and Cultural Heritage Metadata applications and schemas. The topics covered by the conference are not limited to these four areas, but other "metadata and semantics"-related topics are also of interest.

The on-line format of the conference encourages demonstration of systems and prototypes and it enables the provision of artifacts that are important for discussion like schemas, ontologies, learning objects or sample metadata records. The commitment of authors to share their artifacts or implementations with conference participants will be supported by the on-line conferencing system.

The Conference will publish on-line pre-proceedings to maximize the possibilities of virtual interaction and discussion. Post-proceedings including all presented papers, extended to include the eventual results of discussion, will be published by an international editor. In addition, best papers will be selected for publishing extended versions at several International Journals covering the diversity of topics of the Conference.

MTSR'05 is sponsored by AIS SIGSEMIS , AIS SIGRLO and AIS SIGODIS(members will benefit from reduced registration fees).
