International Symposium on Digital Libraries 1999 (ISDL'99)
Digital Libraries are widely recognized as a crucial component of a Global Information Infrastructure for the next century. Research and development projects in many parts of the world are testing new ways of using advanced information technologies such as high-performance computers, multimedia, hypermedia, and artificial intelligence to organize and share information over networks. The success of digital libraries depends not just on technology, but on social and cultural factors such as intellectual property rights and collection policies. Digital Libraries are often discussed as research projects for the future, but many projects have already learned significant lessons from deployment. As the largest producers and consumers of scientific information, universities play a crucial role in the digital library environment.
This symposium will provide an international forum for papers and discussions by researchers, developers and practitioners in and for Digital Libraries. The symposium topics are not limited, and may include
