Open Scholarship: Authority, Community and Sustainability in the Age of Web 2.0

Scholarly communications, in particular scholarly publications, are
undergoing tremendous changes. Researchers, universities, funding
bodies, research libraries and publishers are responding in different
ways, from active experimentation, adaptation, to strong resistance.
The ELPUB2008 conference will focus on key issues on the future of
scholarly communications resulting from the intersection of semantic
web technologies, the development of cyberinfrastructure for
humanities and the sciences, and new dissemination channels and
business models. We welcome a wide variety of papers from members of
these communities whose research and experiments are transforming the
nature of scholarly communications. Topics include but are not restricted to:

* New Publishing models, tools, services and roles
* New scholarly constructs and discourse methods
* Innovative business models for scholarly publishing
* Multilingual and multimodal interfaces
* Services and technology for specific user communities, media, and content
* Content search, analysis and retrieval
* Interoperability, scalability and middleware infrastructure to
facilitate awareness and discovery
* Personalisation technologies (e.g. social tagging, folksonomies,
RSS, microformats)
* Metadata creation, usage and interoperability
* Semantic web issues
* Data mining, text harvesting, and dynamic formatting
* User generated content and its relation to publisher's content
* Usage and citation impact
* Security, privacy and copyright issues
* Digital preservation, content authentication
* Recommendations, guidelines, interoperability standards
