Due to unfortunate circumstances, the KED Workshop has been unavoidably postponed and will not take place at ECDL2005. Further information on the KED relocation will be posted on this page in November 2005. Alternatively you can contact lac @ ecs.soton.ac.uk
As digital libraries proliferate and online dissemination is increasingly considered the norm, the challenges facing librarians are no longer those of basic access and resource discovery by naive textual query. Instead, systems that analyse a literature in terms of relevant citations, authorships, affiliations, acknowledgements, publishers, projects, funders and patents provide new kinds of understanding of a literature and of the context in which it was produced. This in turn yields new types of access to that literature. This workshop addresses the requirements on digital libraries and repositories to facilitate these kinds of analyses and to provide integrated access to value-added services. The workshop is sponsored by the Knowledge Extraction and Semantic Interoperability cluster of the DELOS FP6 Digital Libraries Network of Excellence.
Relevant issues include (but are not limited to) metadata provision and quality control, automatic metadata extraction, document schemas and formats, knowledge mining, bibliographic extraction, onotology harmonization, Semantic Web annotation, semantic services, enhanced searching, digitometric analyses, knowledge visualisation. All of the above must be applied in the context of a digital library or repository.
Submissions for the workshop should be sent to the chair (firstname.lastname@example.org) by August 26th. (changed)
