I'm organizing a JCDL workshop on Semantic Web Technologies for Libraries
and Readers. Consider submitting demos, posters, and research papers (by May
1st), and feel free to write me or the organizing committee (
stlrworkshop2011@gmail.com) with any questions.


The 1st Workshop on Semantic Web Technologies for Libraries and Readers
STLR 2011
June 16 (PM) - 17 (AM) 2011

Co-located with the ACM/IEEE Joint Conference on Digital Libraries (JCDL)
Ottawa, Canada

While Semantic Web technologies are successfully being applied to library
catalogs and digital libraries, the semantic enhancement of books and other
electronic media is ripe for further exploration. Connections between
envisioned and emerging scholarly objects (which are doubtless social and
semantic) and the digital libraries in which these items will be housed,
encountered, and explored have yet to be made and implemented. Likewise,
mobile reading brings new opportunities for personalized, context-aware
interactions between reader and material, enriched by information such as
location, time of day and access history.

This full-day workshop, motivated by the idea that reading is mobile,
interactive, social, and material, will be focused on semantically enhancing
electronic media as well as on the mobile and social aspects of the Semantic
Web for electronic media, libraries and their users. It aims to bring
together practitioners and developers involved in semantically enhancing
electronic media (including documents, books, research objects, multimedia
materials and digital libraries) as well as academics researching more
formal aspects of the interactions between such resources and their users.
We also particularly invite entrepreneurs and developers interested in
enhancing electronic media using Semantic Web technologies with a
user-centered approach.

We invite the submission of papers, demonstrations and posters which
describe implementations or original research that are related (but are not
limited) to the following areas of interest:

- Strategies for semantic publishing (technical, social, and economic)
- Approaches for consuming semantic representations of digital documents and
electronic media
- Open and shared semantic bookmarks and annotations for mobile and
device-independent use
- User-centered approaches for semantically annotating reading lists and/or
library catalogues
- Applications of Semantic Web technologies for building personal or
context-aware media libraries
- Approaches for interacting with context-aware electronic media (e.g.
location-aware storytelling, context-sensitive mobile applications, use of
geolocation, personalization, etc.)
- Applications for media recommendations and filtering using Semantic Web
- Applications integrating natural language processing with approaches for
semantic annotation of reading materials
- Applications leveraging the interoperability of semantic annotations for
aggregation and crowd-sourcing
- Approaches for discipline-specific or task-specific information sharing
and collaboration
- Social semantic approaches for using, publishing, and filtering scholarly
objects and personal electronic media
