Digital libraries, in the central view of the term, focus on storing and
organizing digital objects and providing access to these objects through
professional or user-generated metadata or content-based search (full
text, image content, full musical score). In an expanded view, DLs also
support annotation, generation or editing of digital objects and provide
tools for processing digital objects. The semantic Web focuses on the
formal representation of data for more precise retrieval and, more
importantly, for reasoning so that many often disparate items of data can
be combined to directly answer a user's question or to devise a plan of
action. ICDLSW addresses two main questions:

(1) How can digital libraries support Semantic Web functionality?

(2) How can Semantic Web technology improve digital libraries?

Ultimately the goal is an environment in which all functionality is
available to the user without the perception of different systems or
system boundaries. Contributions are sought that address one or both of
the main questions or steps towards the ultimate system.

SPECIFIC TOPICS that address one or both of the main questions can be
found at:

FULL CALL FOR PAPERS available at:

The conference will explore the area of digital libraries and the semantic
web through tutorials, workshops, demonstrations, invited talks and
presentations. The conference will also serve as a working platform for
communities to discuss and agree on joint work. We also encourage the
submission of WORKSHOP proposals for this purpose.

A person with ubuntu is open and available to others, affirming of others, does not feel threatened that others are able and good, for he or she has a proper self-assurance that comes from knowing that he or she belongs in a greater whole and is diminished when others are humiliated or diminished, when others are tortured or oppressed. ~ Archbishop Desmond Tutu, 1999
