>Subject: ICSD 2009
>Desidero segnalarVi la Conferenza sulle Biblioteche Elettroniche ed il Web
>Semantico (ICSD 2009) che si terrá a Trento il prossimo settembre.
>La Conferenza tratterá anche temi legati all'Open Access come specificato nei
>"topics" del sito web: www.icsd-conference.org.

>International Conference for Digital Libraries and the Semantic Web
>September 8-11, 2009  -  University of Trento, Trento (ITALY)
>Digital libraries, in the central view of the term, focus on storing and
>organizing digital objects and providing access to  these objects through
>professional or user-generated metadata or content-based search (full text,
>image content, full musical  score). In an expanded view, DLs also support
>annotation, generation or editing of digital objects and provide tools for
>processing digital objects. The semantic Web focuses on the formal
>representation of data for more precise retrieval and, more importantly, for
>reasoning so that many often disparate items of data can be combined to
>directly answer a user's question or to devise a plan of action. ICDLSW
>addresses two main questions:
>(1) How can digital libraries support Semantic Web functionality?
>(2) How can Semantic Web technology improve digital libraries?
>Ultimately the goal is an environment in which all functionality is available
>to the user without the perception of different systems or system boundaries.
>Contributions are sought that address one or both of the main questions or
>steps towards the ultimate system.  Some example topics are listed below, but
>the purpose of this list is just to stimulate thinking.
>SPECIFIC TOPICS that address one or both of the main questions:
>* Digital objects that provide formal representation of data ready for
>reasoning, possibly in addition to text, images, or  sound.
>* Knowledge acquisition: Editing tools that assist subject experts in the
>creation of formal representations of data.
>* Digital objects that interact with the user or software agents.
>* Standards and specifications for digital objects.
>* Organization and retrieval of software agents and Semantic Web services.
>* Semantic search. Use of ontologies and knowledge bases (such as topic maps)
>to improve search for digital objects.
>* Question answering from text, from data/knowledge bases, or a combination.
>* Next generation OPACs.
>* The structure and creation of ontologies to support these functions.
>* Using the intellectual capital available in traditional KOS such as Dewey
>Decimal Classification (DDC), UDC, or MeSH in the construction of ontologies
>that support truly semantic search and reasoning.
>* Vocabulary and taxonomy development.
>* Multilingual issues in Digital Libraries.
>* Semantics of bibliographical databases.
>* Metadata standards, Interoperability and Crosswalks.
>* Digital Library and Semantic Web Projects and Case Studies.
>We invite original papers in English on all relevant topics as mentioned
>above. Papers will be reviewed based on  originality  of work, quality and
>relevance to the main theme of the conference. Peer reviewed and accepted
>papers will be published in the conference proceedings. The papers should
>follow the SUBMISSION INSTRUCTIONS provided on the conference website.
>The conference will explore the area of digital libraries and the semantic
>web through tutorials, workshops, demonstrations, invited talks and
>presentations. The conference will also serve as a working platform for
>communities to discuss and agree on joint work. We also encourage the
>submission of workshop proposals for this purpose.

solution, but having the right 10% can be a major benefit (Les Carr).
