PROPOSALS FOR PAPERS AND PANEL DISCUSSIONS
Members of DLF institutions are invited to submit proposals for papers
and panel discussions dealing with any aspect of digital library
Suggested areas of particular interest include the following:
* User communities: partnerships with users to build content and context
* Production: challenges, workflow, scale, sustainability
* Tools: creation, delivery, and scholarly use of digital library
* Harvesting data and metadata for new services
Proposals for presentations should be brief (c.250 words) and supply a
title and short abstract. We strongly encourage presentations that pose
a problem for discussion, and that make plain what others can learn from
the experience of the presenter(s).
Proposals for panel discussions should supply a title, briefly outline
its purpose, and supply the panelists' names alongside titles and short
descriptions for their respective contributions. It is particularly
helpful to the program committee to be told how the panelists'
presentations fit together into a logical whole.
"Birds-of-a-feather" sessions can be made available if demand dictates
--these provide for informal discussion between interested parties on a
specific topic. Anyone attending the Forum is eligible to propose and
organize a session.
