Well, the 2003 Joint Conference on Digital Libraries hasn't yet taken place 
(It's in Houston in at the end of May, see www.jcdl.org for details) but we 
already have available the call for papers for JCDL 2004. Once again, ASIST 
is pleased to be "in cooperation" with   important meeting.

                      Call for Papers: JCDL 2004
             Joint Conference on Digital Libraries (JCDL) 2004
                    Global Reach and Diverse Impact
                            June 7-11, 2004
                          Tucson, Arizona, USA

Jointly sponsored by
       Association for Computing Machinery (ACM)
       Special Interest Group on Information Retrieval (SIGIR)
       Special Interest Group on Hypertext, Hypermedia, and the Web
       (ACM SIGWEB)

In cooperation with
       The American Society for Information Science and Technology (ASIS&T)
       Coalition for Networked Information

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; digital preservation and archiving; and theoretical
models of information media, including document genres and electronic

The intended community for this conference includes those interested in
aspects of digital libraries such as infrastructure; institutions;
metadata;  content; services;  digital preservation; system design;
implementation; interface design;  human- computer interaction;
performance evaluation; usability evaluation;  collection development;
intellectual property; privacy; electronic publishing;  document genres;
multimedia; social, institutional, and policy issues; user communities;
and associated theoretical topics.

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, electrical engineering,
information science, information systems, librarianship, archival science
and practice, museum studies and practices, technology, education,
medicine, intelligence analysis, social sciences, and humanities. All
domains - academia, government, industry, and others - are encouraged to
participate as presenters or attendees.

In addition to the listed digital library research topics, JCDL 2004
encourages submission of papers that illustrate digital library's global
reach and diverse impact. Examples include (but are not limited to): major
national or cross-regional digital library projects; case studies
exemplifying successful international collaboration and impact; innovative
cultural preservation and dissemination projects aimed at preserving
unique and indigenous knowledge; the development and use of digital
library technologies for national (and international)  security;  digital
library research for intelligence and security informatics;  digital
library techniques, content, and services based on cyberinfrastructure;
digital library research for enhancing e-learning and education; and other
novel and high-impact digital library projects.

January 15, 2004:     Full papers, panel, and tutorial proposals due
February 10, 2004:    Short papers, posters, proposals for workshops
                       and demonstrations due
March 31, 2004:       Final submissions due

Full and short papers will be included in the conference proceedings and
will be presented at the conference. Papers must be in English with a
limit of 10 pages (approximately 5000 words) for full papers and 2 pages
for short papers.  All papers must be original contributions (i.e., not
have been previously published or currently under review for publication
elsewhere). All contributions are to be submitted in electronic form via
the JCDL conference web site, following ACM format guidelines and using
the template provided
(http://www.acm.org/sigs/pubs/proceed/template.html).  Preferred
submission formats are PDF or Microsoft Word. The conference will award
the Vannevar Bush Award to the best full paper.

Panels and posters provide opportunities to present work-in-progress,
late- breaking results, or other efforts that would benefit from
discussion with the community. Successful panel proposals should involve a
controversial or emerging topic and articulate and entertaining panelists.
Panel proposals must consist of a title, a 1-page extended abstract
explaining the topic and goals of the session along with a list of titles
of individual presentations and/or viewpoints and contact information for
the organizer, moderator, and panelists. Posters permit presentation of
late-breaking results in an informal, interactive manner.  Poster
proposals should consist of a title, a 1-page extended abstract, and
contact information for the authors. Accepted posters will be displayed at
the conference and may include additional materials, space permitting.
Abstracts of panels and posters will appear in the proceedings.
Demonstrations will allow attendees to have first-hand views of innovative
digital libraries technology and applications and to talk informally with
system developers and researchers.  Demonstration proposals should consist
of a title, a 1-page extended abstract, and contact information for the
authors. Abstracts of demonstrations will appear in the proceedings. All
contributions are to be submitted in electronic form via the JCDL
conference web site.

Proposals for tutorials and workshops are also solicited. Tutorials are
intended to present a single topic in detail over either a half-day or a
full day.  Tutorial proposals should include: a tutorial title; an
abstract (1-2 paragraphs, to be used in conference programs); a
description or topical outline of tutorial (1-2 paragraphs, to be used for
evaluation); duration (half- or full-day); expected number of
participants; target audience, including level of experience
(introductory, intermediate, advanced); learning objectives; a brief
biographical sketch of the presenter(s); and contact information for the
presenter(s). Tutorial proposals should be emailed directly to the
tutorial chair. For further information please contact the tutorial chair.

Workshops are intended to draw together communities of interest in a new
or emerging issue and provide a forum for discussion and exploration.
Submissions should include: a workshop title and short description; a
statement of objectives for the workshop; a topical outline for the
workshop; identification of the expected audience; a description of the
planned format, duration (half- or full-day), and expected number of
attendees; information about how the attendees will be identified,
notified of the workshop, and, if necessary, selected from among
applicants; as well as contact and biographical information about the
organizers.  Finally, if a workshop has been held previously, information
about the earlier sessions should be provided -- dates, locations,
outcomes, attendance, etc.  Workshop proposals should be emailed directly
to the workshop chair. For further information please contact the workshop

JCDL 2004 will be held in Tucson, Arizona on June 7-11, 2003. Warmed by an
abundance of desert sunshine, the meeting will be held in a rejuvenating
resort environment inspired by the beauty of its pristine natural
surroundings.  Home to an amazing variety of birds, plants and wildlife,
Tucson is an ideal choice for nature lovers, families, or those simply
seeking a serene escape from daily pressures. It also is an inspiring
setting for productive professional meetings.  Outdoor enthusiasts may
enjoy horseback riding, hiking, biking, birding and swimming, plus golf
nearby. Weather in early June in Tucson is warm, but comfortable and
pleasant. The Hilton El Conquistado will be the JCDL 2004 conference
hotel. It is a 4-Star, 4-Diamond resort nested at the base of the Catalina
Mountains. It features 428 newly renovated guest rooms with upscale
southwestern dcor and private balconies with gorgeous mountain views.
There are additional 90 rooms (also Hilton) available nearby for overflow
guests. This hotel has a spacious, open lobby that is perfect for
networking. Many activities including horseback riding, jeep tours, and
bicycle rentals, are available on site.
