    dozen of our list editors are participating on panels, so here is an
    opportunity to meet your hardworking editors.  We are also hosting a
    reception and will have a booth in the book exhibit with direct
    internet connections, where you can surf our site, get assistance with
    your subscription, visit with editors and officers, and catch up on our
    many programs and activities.

             Subject: JoDI CfP on Distributed Information Management
    This message is to all registered users of Journal of Digital Information.
    We are pleased to announce a Call for Papers for a forthcoming special
    issue of JoDI on
    Distributed Information Management
    Guest editor: David De Roure, University of Southampton, UK
    The important dates are:
    Submission deadline: February 2, 2001
    Publication date: April 2001
    There has been much comment recently about the emergence of Peer-to-Peer
    (P2P) networks. The broader context for this is Distributed Information
    Management (DIM). JoDI is producing an authoritative special issue on DIM,
    and papers are invited for consideration. Below is the guest editor's 'call
    for papers', which can also be found at
    Submission should be via the form at
    The increase in scale and complexity of distributed information systems,
    and in the heterogeneity of their digital content, brings a new set of
    scientific and engineering challenges. For example, how well do
    established techniques scale up to very large volumes or huge diversity of
    information? How do we maintain access to digital content when networked
    resources are not always available? How do we handle ownership and control
    issues? Can content be self-organising?
    The aim of this special issue is to identify challenges and explore
    solutions in the distributed information management field, by
    drawing together contributions from experts in the major areas.
    Papers are invited in the following areas (this list is not exhaustive):
    - Research issues; e.g. 'Ten issues in distributed information management'
    - Case studies, e.g. experience of large-scale DIM projects
    - Survey papers
    - Futurology - impact of technology trends on distributed information
        management systems
    - Scaleable models and techniques for accessing, browsing and searching
        the distributed multimedia information space
    - Preservation issues in distributed information systems
    - Specification and implementation of access policies
    - Methodologies for building distributed multimedia information systems
    - Management of information evolution and of inconsistency
    - Emergent computing techniques applied to DIM
    - Grid computing - building an information grid
    - DIM issues in pervasive computing systems
    - Working with live information
    - Integration of distributed multimedia information systems
    - Metadata and ontology issues in the distributed context
    - Distributed systems issues at the information level
    - Metrics for evaluation of distributed information systems
    The Journal of Digital Information is a refereed journal published only
    via the Web. The journal is currently available free to users.
