The conference will bring together researchers from multiple disciplines whose science relates to the development of digital libraries; enable review and discussion of research under way in Europe, the USA, Japan, and other countries on digital libraries; stimulate researchers, especially young scientists, to explore new areas of interest in digital library development; establish a forum for discussion of issues specific to Europe such as interoperability, multilinguality and intellectual property policy and information commerce.
The Conference will be held at the Palazzo dei Congressi in Pisa. Full details on the scientific programme of the Conference will published on our Web site by 1 July 1997. Demos of on-going DL activities will be given by some of the most important US, European Union and national initiatives. The Proceedings will be published by Springer as a volume in their Lecture Notes in Computer Science series and will be distributed at the Conference.
A tutorial day will be held immediately before the Conference on Sunday, 31 August 1997. The aim is to give participants at the Conference the chance to become better acquainted with some of the most relevant areas in DL related research. A series of tutorials have thus been organised by experts in the following fields.
Tutorials will be guaranteed if a minimum of ten participants are registered by 31 July 1997.
