CfP: 17th International Conference on Electronic Publishing "Mining the Digital Information Networks"

7 Jan 2013 - 00:00

June 13-14, 2013, Blekinge Institute of Technology, Karlskrona, Sweden

The main theme of the 17th International Conference on Electronic Publishing (ELPUB, will be extracting and processing data from the vast wealth of digital publishing and the ways to use and reuse this information in innovative social contexts in a sustainable way. We will bring together researchers and practitioners to discuss data mining, digital publishing and social networks along with their implications for scholarly communication, information services, e-learning, e-businesses, the cultural heritage sector and other areas where electronic publishing is imperative.

Electronic publishing is continuously changing, inviting new actors and challenging traditional players. New technologies open new ways for individuals, scholars, communities and networks to establish contacts, exchange data, produce information, share knowledge in a large variety of devices, from personal computers to mobile media.

There is an urgent need to rethink electronic publishing, in order to develop and use new communication paradigms and technologies. It is a matter of transforming and transmitting information not just into an equivalent of paper but to develop a truly digital format, to allow machine processing and new services, and to face the future of mobile life. The /ELPUB 2013/ conference will focus on key issues concernin the development of methods for gathering and processing information and on the means for making these data useful and accessible for the digital community.

To address those questions we need competence and knowledge from many different fields. We welcome submissions from members of the communities whose research is transforming the nature of electronic publishing and scholarly communication. Topics include:

Data Mining and Knowledge Discovery

  • Text Mining (Natural language processing, text harvesting, dynamic formatting)
  • Open Data, Open Linked Data (Solutions, methods, tools)
  • Web Mining (Knowledge discovery in web documents)
  • Association Mining (Knowledge linking, discovery, presentation)
  • Information Retrieval (Content search, analysis and retrieval)
  • Visualization (Clustering, Graphs, Augmented reality)
  • Stream Mining (Video tagging, Audiobook tagging)

Publishing and Access

  • New publishing models (Business models, tools, services and roles)
  • Open access (Publishing solutions, mandates, recommendations)
  • Mobile information services (e-contents, e-books, etc.)
  • Interoperability (Scalability and middleware infrastructure)
  • Legal issues (Security, privacy and copyright issues)
  • Digital preservation (Cultural heritage, content authentication)
