This conference is the second of a series of European conferences on research and technology for digital libraries funded by the European Commission's TMR Programme. Its objectives are: to bring together researchers from multiple disciplines whose science relates to the development of digital libraries; to provide an opportunity for these scientists to form a research community in Europe specific to digital library development and to enable them to discuss issues and strategies specific to the European context; to assist young researchers in establishing relationships with senior scientists in their areas of interest; to enable review and discussion of research under way in Europe, the US, Japan and other countries on digital libraries; to stimulate researchers, especially young scientists, to explore new areas of interest in digital library development; to establish a forum for discussion of issues specific to Europe such as interoperability, multilinguality, intellectual property policy, and information commerce; to provide an opportunity for researchers in the relevant enabling technologies and information sciences, to discuss issues related to interoperability between world wide distributed digital libraries.

From a technical point of view, the European Conferences series aims to contribute to the definition of those digital library parameters which especially influence issues of access, retrieval, and interaction with information; to identify key problems which must be solved to make digital library services an effective reality; to identify a general structure or framework for integrating research and solutions; and to propose and encourage specific, high priority research directions within such a framework.


The conference organisers solicit papers on topics related to digital libraries, including but not limited to the following list:

  • Digital Library Models, Frameworks, and System Requirements
  • Metadata
  • System Integration and Architecture Issues
  • Interoperability, Scalability
  • Networked Information Discovery, Agent Technologies
  • Information Retrieval, Organisation, Navigation - Tools and Paradigms
  • Multilinguality
  • Role of Knowledge Representation Systems in Digital Library Interactions
  • Collecting, Capturing, Filtering, Cataloging, Indexing,
  • Preserving
  • Intellectual Property Rights, Terms and Conditions, Rights Management
  • Authoring, Electronic Publishing, Electronic Commerce and
  • Information Economies
  • Economic and Social Implications and Issues
  • User Interfaces
  • Handling of Graphics, GIS, Medical Data, Multimedia Information,
  • Experimental Data and
  • Scientific Models

Suggestions for the organisation of panel sessions on one of the proposed topics or on related topics are welcomed. Proposals should include a short CV and position paper for each panelist.


During the conference a space will be reserved for poster sessions. Research projects of any scale are invited to illustrate innovative concepts and prototype systems.

Poster proposals should include title, names of presenters and outline (max. 500 words).


Tutorial days will be held before the Conference, on Saturday the 19th and Sunday the 20th of September 1998. Proposals for tutorials are solicited. Tutorials would be either half day (3 hours) or full day (6 hours). Each proposal should include a title, a summary (intentions, objectives, etc.), duration and a short CV of the instructor(s).


Result demonstrations of on-going projects are strongly encouraged. Those interested should submit a description of the intended Demo to the Programme Chair.


Papers (max 20 pages, double spaced) should be submitted electronically in HTML format, either by e-mail to the Conference Secretariat,, or to our ftp site,


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.

Fellowship for Young Researchers

A limited number of fellowships for the Conference and also for Tutorials are available for young researchers who are citizens of European Union countries or Liechtenstein, Norway and Iceland. The fellowship offers free registration for the participants and, in special cases where necessary and appropriately justified, may pay for or reimburse travel and lodging expenses.
