ECDL is the 5th in the annual European Digital Libraries conferences. This
gives a good opportunity to review the impact Digital Libraries have on
science, technology, and society in general. In this perspective the
conference will emphasise applications of Digital Library systems and their
integration in the user communities. Future perspectives, such as the
convergence of libraries, museums, and archives into Collective Memories,
will be discussed.

The scientific program includes:
* Submitted scientific papers, including short papers and submitted poster
* Presentations of prototypes, operational systems, and associated use
* Invited papers and panel discussions.


LIBRARIES; MUSEUMS; ARCHIVES - convergence in the digital world?
This focus will explore the on-going convergence of libraries, archives,
and museums into integrated digital information spaces on science, art, and
history. Contributions may discuss:
* How to organise these spaces and how to help people to find their way in
* The chances and limitations of blurring the roles of people involved -
are they visitors, users, librarians, archivists, researchers?
* The roles of real artefacts and of their digital counterparts. Will
digital images replace or enhance physical objects?

Future forms of collaboration in information spaces can be discussed under
various scenarios:
* Scientific research on and annotation of rare and fragile objects can be
combined with the curiosity of interested lay persons.
* Digital objects allow "hands on" experience that is not possible with the
real artefacts.
* Diverse interpretations and views now spread over various publications
can be documented and brought together.

COLLECTIVE MEMORY - A global institution?
Global availability of digital Collective Memories makes the physical
location of Libraries, Museums, and Archives less important. However, the
local and regional idiosyncrasies of users will adapt only slowly to a
global view - especially when Collective Memories go beyond the domains of
science and large organisations. As a European conference, ECDL 2001 must
pay close attention to these aspects of globalisation with regard to
multilinguality, preservation of the diverse cultural heritage, traditions,
views, and approaches.

In those three areas scientific papers are called for especially in, but
not restricted to:
* Applications in science, technology, and society
* Integration in user communities
* User interfaces, user models
* Technologies supporting knowledge management
* Information and knowledge environments
* Collaboration in information spaces
* Information retrieval, filtering, personalisation, and enrichment
* Multimedia digital libraries
* Digitalisation and annotation of real world artefacts
* Data models, metadata models, ontologies


Authors of regular papers are invited to submit original contributions, not
exceeding 5000 words. The authors must follow the instructions found at
The ECDL 2001 home page http://www.ecdl2001.org will contain further
details on electronic submissions.

We solicit proposals for workshops related to the conference topics. The
workshops will be organised during September 8th 2001.

We solicit proposals for panels sessions related to the conference topics.
We strongly encourage panels that have a mixture of 2 academic and 2
practitioners/ users (plus the chair).

We solicit proposals for tutorials related to the conference topics. The
tutorials will be organised during September 4th 2001. Proposals should
identify the intended audience and provide a scope of what will be covered.

The conference organisers solicit proposals for demonstrations of
innovative results, projects and products, and also for high quality
posters. A permanent space for those purposes will be available during the
conference. The Demonstrations co-chairs can answer technical or practical
questions beforehand.

The proceedings will be published by Springer in the series of Lecture
Notes in Computer Science
(http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/index.html). The proceedings will be
published as printed books as well as a full-text electronic version.
