11th International Conference on Electronic Publishing 13 to 15 June
2007, Vienna (Austria)

Submission deadline: Jan. 10, 2007


Openness in Digital Publishing: Awareness, Discovery and Access

"Openness" is a broad philosophical as well as technical tenet that
underlies much of the innovation in the creation and consumption of
Internet technologies, which are in turn transforming scholarly
communications, practices and publishing across the disciplines and
around the world.

ELPUB 2007 is devoted to examining the full spectrum of "openness" in
digital publishing, from open source applications for content
creation to open distribution of content, and open standards to
facilitate sharing and open access. We welcome papers with
theoretical analysis, description of models and services, or new and
innovative technical results on:

* Publishing models, tools, services and roles
* Digital publication value chain
* Multilingual and multimodal interfaces
* Services and technology for specific user communities, media, and content
* Interoperability and scalability
* Middleware infrastructure to facilitate awareness and discovery
* Personalisation technologies (e.g. social tagging, folksonomies,
RSS, microformats)
* Metadata creation, usage and interoperability
* Semantic web issues
* Security, privacy and copyright issues
* Digital reservation, contents authentication
* Recommendations, guidelines, standards

Contributions are invited for the following categories:

- Single papers (abstract minimum of 1,000 and maximum of 1500 words)
- Tutorial (abstract minimum of 500 and maximum of 1500 words)
- Workshop (abstract max of 1000 words)
- Poster (abstract max of 500 words)
- Demonstration (abstract max of 500 words)

Abstracts must be submitted following the instructions on the
conference website <http://www.elpub.net>


January 10th 2007: Deadline for submission of abstracts (in all categories).

February 28, 2007: Authors will be notified of the acceptance of
submitted papers and workshop proposal.

April 11th, 2007: Final papers must be received. See website for
detailed author instructions.

Posters (A1-format) and demonstration materials should be brought by
their authors at the conference time. Only abstracts of these
contributions will be published in the conference proceedings.
Information on requirements for Workshops and tutorials proposals
will be posted shortly on the website.

The ELPUB 2007 conference will keep the tradition of the ten previous
international conferences on electronic publishing, held in the
United Kingdom (in 1997 and 2001), Hungary (1998), Sweden (1999),
Russia (2000), the Czech Republic (2002), Portugal (2003), Brazil
(2004), Belgium (2005) and Bulgaria (2006), which is to bring
together researchers, lecturers, librarians, developers, businessmen,
entrepreneurs, managers, users and all those interested on issues
regarding electronic publishing in widely differing contexts. These
include the human, cultural, economic, social, technological, legal,
commercial and other relevant aspects that such an exciting theme encompasses.

Three distinguished features of this conference are: broad scope of
topics which creates a unique atmosphere of active exchange and
learning about various aspects of electronic publishing; combination
of general and technical issues; and a condensed procedure of
submission, revision and publication of proceedings which guarantees
presentations of most recent work.


Vienna, the capital of Austria, is one of Europe's most fascinating
cities with a rich history and various cultural attractions and
reasonable living costs. The campus of Vienna University of
Technology is located near the historic downtown of Vienna.
