- Objectives 

This conference is the second of a series of European conferences on
research and technology for digital libraries funded by the European
Commission's TMR Programme. Its objectives are: to bring together
researchers from multiple disciplines whose science relates to the
development of digital libraries; to provide an opportunity for these
scientists to form a research community in Europe specific to digital
library development and to enable them to discuss issues and
strategies specific to the European context; to assist young
researchers in establishing relationships with senior scientists in
their areas of interest; to enable review and discussion of research
under way in Europe, the US, Japan and other countries on digital
libraries; to stimulate researchers, especially young scientists, to
explore new areas of interest in digital library development; to
establish a forum for discussion of issues specific to Europe such as
interoperability, multilinguality, intellectual property policy, and
information commerce; to provide an opportunity for researchers in the
relevant enabling technologies and information sciences, to discuss
issues related to interoperability between world wide distributed
digital libraries.

>From a technical point of view, the European Conferences series aims
to contribute to the definition of those digital library parameters
which especially influence issues of access, retrieval, and
interaction with information; to identify key problems which must be
solved to make digital library services an effective reality; to
identify a general structure or framework for integrating research and
solutions; and to propose and encourage specific, high priority
research directions within such a framework.
