ECDL2010, 6-10 September 2010, Glasgow, Scotland


2nd WorkshopMaking Digital Libraries Interoperable: Challenges & Approaches, 9-10 September 2010 during the 14th European Conference on Digital Libraries (ECDL2010), Glasgow, Scotland, UK

The Workshop explores Digital Library (DL) interoperability from multi-faceted perspectives spanning content, functionality, user, policy, quality and architecture and offers a forum for a fruitful exchange of ideas on DL interoperability challenges and approaches. (Digital Library Interoperability, Best Practices & Modelling Foundations) is soliciting two types of contributions: Research & Project papers for our 2nd Workshop:

Research Papers

Authors are invited to submit original research papers addressing current approaches and new research directions for  tackling multi-faceted digital library interoperability issues.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Theoretical Foundations of Interoperability in Digital Library
  • Emerging interoperability issues
  • Standard-based approaches toward interoperability
  • Technologies promoting interoperability
  • Mediator-based approaches toward interoperability
  • Concrete implementations and exploitations of interoperability solution
  • Evaluation of interoperability approaches and solutions
  • Interoperability Models
  • Ontology driven interoperability
  • Metadata interoperability
  • Interoperability levels

Research papers will have a full-length oral presentation and will be published in a high-quality proceedings volume. Each submitted paper must not exceed 10 pages in total.

Project Papers
Authors are invited to submit papers focusing on DL interoperability approaches and solutions adopted and lessons learned when implementing interoperable DL systems in the context of European, international and national projects.
These papers will have a short oral presentation and will be included in the “Project Papers” section of the Workshop proceedings. Each submitted paper must not exceed 8 pages in total.

Reviewing Process

The reviewing process will be carried out by the members of the Workshop International Programme Committee. Two referees will review each paper. Members of the Programme Committee include Tiziana Catarci, University of Rome “La Sapienza”, Italy; Jane Hunter, University of Queensland, Australia; Ronald Larsen, University of Pittsburgh, U.S.; John Mylopoulos, University of Toronto, Canada; Fabio Simeoni, University of Strathclyde, Scotland, UK; Dagobert Soergel, University at Buffalo, U.S.
