We are pleased to announce that registration is now open for the:

The 2nd Joint Conference on Digital Libraries - JCDL 2002
July 14-18, 2002
Portland, Oregon, USA

To register for JCDL 2002, please visit the conference web site at 
http://www.jcdl2002.org/.  You can register on-line or via fax or 
postal mail.  In addition to the main conference, there are tutorials 
and workshops.

The Joint Conference on Digital Libraries is a major international 
forum focusing on digital libraries and associated technical, 
practical, and social issues. JCDL encompasses the many meanings of 
the term "digital libraries", including (but not limited to) new 
forms of information institutions; operational information systems 
with all manner of digital content; new means of selecting, 
collecting, organizing, and distributing digital content; and 
theoretical models of information media, including document genres 
and electronic publishing.

Participation is sought from all parts of the world and from the full 
range of disciplines and professions involved in digital library 
research and practice, including computer science, information 
science, librarianship, archival science and practice, museum studies 
and practice, technology, medicine, social sciences, and humanities. 
All domains---academe, government, industry, and others---are 
encouraged to attend.

The conference venue is in Portland, Oregon, which has superb access 
to aqua and terra attractions and events.  The conference hotel is 
the Lloyd Center Doubletree Hotel, which is a short ride on the light 
rail across the river to downtown Portland as well as the eclectic 
eateries and galleries of NW 23rd St. July is an excellent month to 
visit the Pacific Northwest, as temperatures are moderate and 
humidity is low.  Within 1-2 hours driving distance are the Oregon 
coast, the myriad of recreational activities in the Cascade 
Mountains, and Mt. St. Helens.
