workshop. All accepted submissions will be given a 15-25 minute slot for
presentation and discussion. Registration information can be foundhere

       Call For Papers

Workshop Description
Libraries, archives, museums, and data repositories often rely upon
conceptual models that provide formal representation information and
identity conditions for digital resources. Examples include conceptual
models traditional to library and information science, such as
Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records (FRBR), data models
from the semantic web, like the Resource Description Framework (RDF), as
well as the development of protocols unique to the exchange of digital
objects, such as the Open Archives Initiative for Object Reuse and
Exchange (OAI-ORE).

We believe that sustaining a rich tradition of research and development
in conceptual modeling requires renewed efforts from the digital library
community. Many of the protocols, data models, and descriptive
frameworks described above are in need of update, revision and extension
to remain useful to the development of new information infrastructures.
We therefore seek to convene a group of researchers and practitioners
interested in developing a collaborative research agenda around
conceptual modeling.

We seek contributions from practitioners and researchers interested in
digital collections in many domains, especially collections from
different epistemologies and traditions of knowledge organization:
natural history museums, art museums, library special collections,
archives, data repositories, earth science informatics, biodiversity
informatics, etc. This may include topics relevant to conceptual
modeling, including but not limited to:

    the history and evolution of conceptual models,
    extensions to, or critiques of, existing conceptual models,
    the development of domain-specific conceptual models (e.g. in the
     earth sciences, in the humanities, etc) applied strategies for
     modeling in development processes,
    critical examination of the social and technical implications of
     conceptual models.

Contributions may be of two varieties:

    Full research papers should present results from completed
     research, or fully developed conceptual analysis. Full research
     papers should be a maximum of 3000 words in length (not including
    Short research papers can present in-progress work, small case
     studies, position statements, or theoretical and conceptual analysis
     that is at an early stage of development. Short research papers
     should be a maximum 1500 words in length (not including citations).


    Submission Deadline is April 25th
    Notifications will be sent no later than April 29th
    Accepted submissions can be revised before May 25th. At the time we
     will post all accepted submissions to the workshop website.
    Workshop will take place June 6th.

Instructions for Submission
Please submit a PDF, DOC, or TXT document to nmweber@uw.edu by April
25th. You may use any format or citation style that you prefer -
However, we do suggest following the conference's ACM template

All Submissions will be reviewed by the organizing committee.

We're also excited to announce that Dr. Karen Wickett will be giving a
keynote lecture at the workshop! We plan to organize a special issue for
an information science journal based on the proceedings. If you have any
questions please feel free to get in contact with any of the organizers
in advance.

        Subject: From print to digital: Professor Cal Lee's visit, Loughborough, 7 May

Dear colleagues,

Professor Cal Lee (U of North Carolina at Chapel Hill) will come to
Loughborough University on Tuesday 7 May, thanks to funding from the
Institute of Advanced Studies.

Two main activities are scheduled:

A public Masterclass (11am to 1pm) during which Professor Lee will
introduce his research, engage in a discussion with staff and
postgraduate students and provide feedback on their projects. The
event offers a rare opportunity to meet an expert who has made
paradigm-changing contributions to the field of archives and digital
records management.

A public lecture (4pm to 5.30pm) will follow the Masterclass. It
will be accessible to a general audience interested in key issues
related to the digital revolution. The transition from print to
digital has created huge challenges, and Professor Lee will offer
big ideas to help us think about the digital and its impact on
archives and cultural memory.

The number of places is strictly limited so please register early:

SHORT BIO: Christopher (Cal) Lee is Professor at the School of
