                   ELPUB2001 - "2001 in the Digital Publishing Odyssey"
                 July 5 -7th, 2001: University of Kent at Canterbury, UK
    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
    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
    The list of topics is not meant to be exhaustive and submissions on any
    topic within the overall conference theme will be considered.
