(From the back cover) Metadata and Semantic Research is a growing complex ecosystem of conceptual, theoretical, methodological, and technological frameworks, offering innovative computational solutions in the design and development of computer-based systems. This volume constitutes the selected papers of the fourth international conference on Metadata and Semantic Research, MTSR 2010, held in Alcalá de Henares, Spain, in October 2010. The 28 full papers presented together with 3 invited lectures were carefully reviewed and selected from numerous submissions. Papers focus on theoretical and practical aspects of metadata research in a broad sense: models, languages, standards, applications, etc. and also on the application of Semantic Web technologies or any other kind of advanced metadata expression language to Web applications.
