CALL FOR PAPERS

ICCC / IFIP
6th INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON ELECTRONIC PUBLISHING
at Karlovy Vary, Czech Republic

ELPUB2002 - "Technology Interactions"
http://www.tu-chemnitz.de/elpub02/

Hosted by the Institute for Print and Media Technology of Chemnitz Technical
University, Germany and by the Department for Computer Science and
Engineering, University of West Bohemia in Pilsen, Czech Republic
November 06 - 09th, 2002


Electronic Publishing is an area that is crossed over other areas such as
E-commerce, Digital Libraries, Distance Learning, etc. New technologies keep
appearing everyday in the Electronic Publishing arena. These interact not
only among them, but also with all these areas, and not always in the same
way. The "What, Where, How, and Why" questions about these technologies
interactions is the main theme of the 2002 ElPub conference.

ELPUB2002 is the 6th in a series of annual international conferences on
Electronic Publishing. The objective of ELPUB2002 is to bring together
researchers, managers, developers, and users working on the issues related
to electronic publishing for public, scientific and commercial applications.
The conference will continue the tradition of the previous conferences
which took place in Great Britain in 1997, Hungary in 1998, Sweden in 1999,
Russia in 2000 and England in 2001.
