2001 in the Digital Publishing Odyssey


at University of Kent at Canterbury, UK

July 5 -7th, 2001

In the world of digital publishing, formerly separate disciplines are merging and overlapping. Informational exchange on a technical as well as on a cultural level will provide important guidance for the future odyssey in new opportunities for digital publishing. This is serious argument for participating in ELPUB 2001 in Canterbury!

ELPUB2001 is the 5th in a series of annual international conferences on Electronic Publishing. The objective of ELPUB2001 is to bring together researchers, managers, developers, and users working on the issues related to electronic publishing for public, scientific and commercial applications. The conference will continue the tradition of the previous conferences which took place in Great Britain in 1997, Hungary in 1998, Sweden in 1999 and Russia in 2000.



Submitted scientific papers, presentations of prototypes, operational systems, and associated experiences.

The focus is on electronic publishing for academic and industrial purposes and for the general public. We welcome speakers on non-technical and technical problems.

Three main topics with several subsections are addressed:

I. New Publishing Models XML and further standards, interchange networks, distributed systems, document input, document delivery, e-books and new output media. Global co-operation in publishing, scientific demands (Citing, Linking), education and training, user needs and user profiles.

II. Digital Libraries Architecture, knowledge management, multimedia in digital libraries, multi-lingualism, Navigation and information retrieval. New library services, content management, user interfaces, cataloguing and archives

III. E-Commerce for Publishing Copyright saving and security systems, new business models, author-publisher-librarian: costs&payments; legal issues.

Each topic has two tracks: 1. Technical focus 2. Human and cultural focus Proceedings of the conference will be published both as a book and electronically.

The list of topics is not meant to be exhaustive and submissions on any topic within the overall conference theme will be considered.
