                      CALL FOR PAPERS - TMRA'05
   - International Workshop on Topic Map Research and Applications -
          Villa Ida, Leipzig, Germany, 6-7th October 2005

        Extended abstract submission due: 2nd May 2005

TMRA'05 - "Charting the Topic Map Research and Applications Landscape"
======================================================================

TMRA'05 - International Workshop on Topic Map Research and Applications -
provides a forum for community building in the field of Topic Map research
and applications. A main objective of TMRA'05 is to chart the landscape of
Topic Map research. Together we want to identify the primary open issues,
who is working on what, bring together researchers and application pioneers,
stimulate the systematic tackling of such issues, and foster the exchange of
ideas in a non-commercial and stimulating setting. Besides the scientific
track, open-space sessions are foreseen as playgrounds for visionaries.

TMRA'05 will take place in Villa Ida, Leipzig, Germany, which provides an
intimate and exciting atmosphere for Topic Maps researchers and application
pioneers. It is organised by the University of Leipzig. We are looking for
papers with substantial contributions to bring the Topic Map community
together. The workshop language is English.

CHALLENGES of TMRA'05

We invite papers about Topic Map research and sophisticated applications.
You should substantially contribute to one or more of the following
challenges:

* Connecting Topic Map Theory and Practice
Building the Topic Map research community means to bring together research
from different backgrounds. How can research results developed at
universities be transferred to real-life projects? How can results from
practice be investigated and reused in academic research?

* Charting the Research Landscape
In order to contribute to the connectedness of people and ideas in the Topic
Map community, you can present your own research or present an overview
about an issue in the area of Topic Map research and applications. As a
result, the research community describes itself with a Topic Map.

* Visions with Topic Maps
In order to contribute to the connectedness of people and ideas in the Topic
Map community, you can present your own research or present an overview
about an issue in the area of Topic Map research and applications. As a
result, the research community describes itself with a Topic Map.

* Initiating Projects
We expect that the result of TMRA'05 - the research landscape charted during
the workshop - will help to bring together people and ideas and thus aid
funding of new research projects where Topic Map technologies are used.
