Present CFP : 2010

The 3rd BooksOnline workshop aims to bring together researchers and industry practitioners in information retrieval, digital libraries, ebooks, human computer interaction, publishing industry, and on-line book services to foster progress on addressing challenges and exploring opportunities around large collections of digital books and complementary media. BooksOnline'10 provides a forum to follow community progress, share results, highlight and address issues, and evolve the research agenda.

BooksOnline'10 builds on the previous two workshops: BooksOnline'08 organized at CIKM 2008, and BooksOnline'09 organized at ECDL 2009.
Goals

The goals of the 3rd BooksOnline Workshop are to:

* Provide a forum to present research and ongoing development and to discuss ideas, issues and opportunities
* Connect researchers and practitioners from libraries, archives, academia, publishers, and on-line services
* Create the professional network and support for defining and carrying out joint initiatives in research, design, and technology
* Invite and discuss proposals for projects and initiatives that the BooksOnline community will support and take forward, with seed funding up to £3,000.

The workshop will serve as a forum for the presentation of research papers and the discussion of the challenges and opportunities identified in position papers and project proposals. Participants will be encouraged to jointly create innovative solutions in collaboration around the themes that emerge from the submissions and discussions at the workshop.

A seed fund of £3,000, provided by Microsoft Research, will be awarded to one or more selected projects as judged by the workshop organizers and a selected panel of experts. Seed fund winners will be invited to report on their projects at the following BooksOnline workshop.

Future BooksOnline Workshops will follow the community progress and provide the forum for presenting the results, revisiting the issues, and evolving the agenda.
