Creating and Using Virtual Reality: a Guide for the Arts and Humanities, edited by Kate Fernie and Julian D. Richards
"Creating and Using Virtual Reality is intended for those who are interested in how virtual reality can be used within the arts and humanities. This Guide to Good Practice concentrates on accessible desk-top virtual reality which may be distributed and viewed on-line via the World Wide Web. It is concerned with the variety of virtual reality models that may be produced and how to ensure that these can be delivered successfully to users and preserved for future reuse."
"This Guide introduces virtual reality by considering its history, philosophy and theory and discusses good practice in planning virtual reality projects. It does not attempt to cover all virtual reality technologies this is a rapidly developing field and new methods are continually emerging. The techniques that are introduced are those which are being used in the Arts and Humanities and for which standards are emerging. Ensuring that the models produced can be used and enjoyed by the audiences for which they are intended is the most important consideration for virtual reality projects. The data, management and documentation procedures required to enable models to be maintained and to continue to be enjoyed are introduced in this Guide. Preservation in the longer term is an emerging field; this Guide explores strategies for archiving and considers how to avoid the loss of virtual reality models as technology changes."

Revolutionizing Science and Engineering Through Cyber-infrastructure: Report of the National Science Foundation Blue-Ribbon Advisory Panel on Cyberinfrastructure, January 2003
As directly quoted from the NSF Assistant Director for CISE letter of announcement: "The path forward that this report envisions extensive cyberinfrastructure to enable all levels of S&E research and education, geographic and institution independence, cross-discipline sharing of data and insights, and technical depth in all dimensions, not just processor speed truly has the potential to revolutionize all fields of research and education. As they point out, however, this path must be opened up by increased fundamental research in computer science and engineering. Reaching the goal they set will require the good will and efforts of all areas of S&E, cooperation with other agencies and foreign institutions, and a level of collaboration beyond that seen today."
"By highlighting these aspects of what may eventually be seen as more of a revolution in the behavior of scientists and engineers than in the technology they use underscores the wisdom the Committee has brought to their task. While revolutions such as they outline are rarely the product of a single event, the one outlined in the Committee's report serves a great purpose by focusing our attention on the opportunities before us."

ISMIR 2002 Conference Proceedings, 3rd International Conference on Music Information Retrieval, Paris, France, October 13 - 17, 2002
Recently reviewed in the D-Lib Magazine November 2002 issue (see Report on the Third International Conference on Music Information Retrieval), the annual ISMIR Conference is an "international forum for those involved in the tremendous growth of music-related contents available digitally, locally or remotely, through networks...This area presents vast challenges for those who need to organize and structure, provide tools to search and retrieve, and use them efficiently: music representation, when it exists, is multi-dimensional and time-dependent; audio instantiations are voluminous objects requiring particular care for storage and transmission while preserving quality; descriptive information about what is musically significant addresses a large spectrum of internal and external characteristics, from acoustic to musicological ones; intellectual property rights about what can be made available and how are complex, involve a variety of individuals and organizations, and vary from country to country."
"All of these concerns are of interest to education, academia, entertainment and industry. This conference thus aims at providing a place for the exchange of news, issues and results, by bringing together researchers and developers, educators and librarians, students and professional users, working in fields that may contribute significantly to this multidisciplinary domain, by presenting original theoretical or practical work in peer-reviewed contributions (papers, posters/short papers), serve as a discussion forum (panels), provide in-depth information in specific domains (tutorials) and show current products (exhibit)."

Long-term Preservation of Databases, ERPANET, Electronic Resource Preservation and Access Network, 9 - 11 April 2003, Bern, Switzerland.
"Databases have been, and continue to be, a key technology for the storage, organisation, and interrogation of information. While the value of other types of digital information has been highlighted in recent years, databases and the information they contain have been sidelined. Their preservation is of high concern as they are often either irreplaceable or of such value that replacement would be prohibitively expensive."
"The workshop will cover the entire process of database preservation: selection, appraisal, preservation, description, and access. Technical solutions will occupy an important place in the workshop and archival requirements will also be addressed."
"Different institutional approaches will be presented and key areas of difficulty and success offered. Breakout sessions will focus on some of these identified areas, and attempt to posit solutions and strategies for this difficult challenge."
"Erpaworkshops are expert[-level] meetings to promote and develop new approaches to preservation challenges. Participation is encouraged from specialists in the archival, scientific, and IT spheres, and those with theoretical and/or practical experience in the field of database preservation."

Microfilming and Digitisation for Preservation, LIBER Workshop, 14 - 15 April 2003, The Hague, The Netherlands.
"Over the last years the role of microfilming in collection management has been somewhat overshadowed by the rise of digitization. Digitization has rapidly become popular as a way to open up collections for wider use, but its role in preservation of collections remains as yet debatable. Microfilming has long been an established surrogating method for preservation purposes, but seems less attractive than digitization in terms of access."
"This workshop aims to clarify the position of microfilming and digitization by presenting an overview of the possibilities and requirements for combining the two approaches in preservation projects. It will look at the technical and organizational issues involved in developing methods that exploit the strengths of both approaches in an economical manner. Topics like producing microfilm to standards that allow subsequent digitization and the production of microfilms from digital masters will be discussed."

New Media, Technology and Everyday Life in Europe Conference, 5th RTD Framework Programme of the EU, 23 - 26 April 2003, London, United Kingdom.
"The Fifth RTD Framework Programme of the EU, Creating a User-friendly Information Society, has as its main objective the realisation of the "benefits of the information society for Europe both by accelerating its emergence and by ensuring that the needs of individuals and enterprises are met.'"
"The New Media, Technology and Everyday Life in Europe Conference addresses this agenda directly. It will ask three crucial questions which technology-driven conferences generally fail to address:
"The Conference builds on and expands a range of research activities funded by the EC 4th and 5th Framework Programme (2000-03), COST actions and IST Programmes. It is timely in its situation at the interface between 5th and 6th Framework Programmes. Above all, it draws on the research experience of the EMTEL network (http://www.emtel2.org)."
"The conference is intended as a forum for a high-level encounter between leading European academics in the field of media, new media and society, and more than forty doctoral and post-doctoral researchers (under the age of 36) who will be invited to present their research on the areas and themes covered by the conference."

Networked World: Information Technology and Globalization, 24 April 2003, Santa Clara, California, USA.
"Information and communications technologies (ICT) are an important catalyst for globalization. By collapsing time and distance, they enable individuals and organizations to develop networks of interest that transcend national boundaries. They support the pursuit of private interests that are independent of local or community needs but, in doing so, risk insensitivity to local ways. ICTs increase the integration of production systems and markets, the speed of communications, and the velocity of capital flows with corresponding increases in complexity and volatility. In addition, by reducing the cost of search, the cost of knowledge, and transaction costs they contribute to a more frictionless global capitalist system which favors the swift, the well-educated, and the well-connected, while contributing to growing disparities. In the twenty-first century information infrastructures will differentiate the political and economic influence of countries, the performance of corporations, and the well-being of individuals across diverse cultural contexts."
"In many respects the pace of technological change and globalization are outstripping the pace of social and institutional change. Our networked world presents new challenges for the sociotechnical design of complex systems, for the sovereignty of nation states, and for social cohesion in a world of growing inequalities. These are 'big questions,' and they call for our urgent attention. The Center's April 24 conferenceNetworked World: Information Technology and Globalizationwill address these questions."

Can there be a Social Movement Informatics? 29 April 2003, Leeds, United Kingdom.
"Over the last two decades, the rapid spread of low cost ICT, and most particularly of the Internet, has opened up a range of opportunities for a range of socially-oriented movements and organisations. For example, women's, human rights, community, labour and more recently anti-globalisation and global justice groups are all developing ways of using ICT to further social ends, as have others with less desirable ends such as US hate groups and a variety of cults. Over a similar period, research into the use of information and information systems has highlighted the importance of social and organisational context in influencing patterns of technology use and development."
"The purpose of this workshop is to examine the idea of a 'social movement informatics', and explore whether it constitutes a distinct area of study analogous with, for example, health informatics, community informatics or environmental informatics. We seek to address questions such as: Do the various contexts, values and ways of working of social movements have enough in common with each other, and distinctiveness from the business-oriented mainstream of much informatics research, to warrant specific study? What are the distinguishing features of a social movement informatics? What are the main current topics of interest in such a social movement informatics?"
"The workshop is being organised by...the Social Movement Informatics Research Group a nascent group of researchers, from the School of Information Management, Leeds Metropolitan University."
