Call for Special Track on "Content"

The 13th European Conference on Digital Libraries, under the general theme "Digital Societies", plans to host a special track on Content managed in Digital Libraries.

The papers in this special track should be original and of high quality, addressing issues in areas such as:

  • Composite content and how both compound objects and their components and interrelationships, can be discovered, managed, re-used and exploited through flexible access;
  • Time-dependent content (for example,  sensor data, podcasts, YouTube), and how its temporal characteristics present challenges associated with  storage, querying and visualization;
  • Large volume content, such as scientific data sets or high resolution image data sets (for example from satellites or electron microscopes) and the specific requirements they impose;
  • Dynamically-generated content that is in a constant state of flux and incorporates near-real-time data and information (e.g., blogs, environmental or stock market reports) and how such content can be archived, searched and managed;
  • 3D-4D content - increasingly 3, 4 or more dimensions are being used to represent digital objects particularly in the cultural and scientific domains. Indexing, storage, retrieval and preservation of such rich, multidimensional data sets requires innovative approaches;
  • License issues for digital library content and how they are evolving along creative commons and related "open access" approaches;
  • Preservation issues and how they impact on the architecture of digital library systems, as well as on the workflows of its users;
  • Authority issues - how digital libraries are adapting to manage the increasing amounts of content being generated from non-authoritative sources (e.g., through citizen science or social networking projects, YouTube, Flickr).

The aim of this track is to document the state-of-the-art in content for digital libraries and to discuss the main open research issues, so that more effective progress can be made in this area.

"Content" Special Track Chairs:

  • Jane Hunter, University of Queensland, Australia.
  • Erik Duval, Katholieke Universiteit Leuven.
