>      ELVIRA 4 : The 4th UK Digital Libraries Conference
>     (Electronic Library and Visual Information Research)
>               Milton Keynes, 6-8 May 1997
>The ELVIRA series of electronic library conferences has reached its
>4th year. It is now well established as a key European forum for
>developments and research in the rapidly expanding field of
>electronic resources. This year's conference promises to build on
>the solid foundations already established. It will also be the most
>exciting yet, with the addition of parallel sessions, specialist
>workshops, a full social programme and other exciting features.
>The conference is hosted by De Montfort University's International
>Institute for Electronic Library Research, and will again be set in
>the attractive green parkland of Britain's newest city, Milton
>Keynes. Details of the venue and accommodation, and extensive local
>information, will be made available nearer the conference date.
>This year the conference aims to provide a varied and flexible
>programme, to allow different specialist areas to present their work
>in the way their practitioners find most appropriate. Proposals are
>currently sought for workshops, panel discussions, exhibits and
>presentation sessions on specific areas, as well as abstracts of
>traditional papers. Paper abstracts and poster submissions will be
>peer-reviewed; acceptance of other types of submission will be
>contingent on available time and relevance to the conference themes.
>Based on feedback from previous conferences, and on current trends in
>the field, topics which are particularly sought for this year's
>conference include:
>Content of digital resources
>Social and psychological issues, and related research studies
>Management issues
>User interface and general system design
>Economic aspects and copyright
>Storage and retrieval of images and other non-text materials
>However, any submissions related to electronic library developments
>and research will also be very welcome.
>5 pm (UK time) on FRIDAY 15th NOVEMBER 1996.
>Extended 1000-word abstracts should be submitted to the address
>below (electronically if possible), to arrive by the above closing
>date. Authors will be notified of acceptance by the end of January
>1997, and will be required to produce fuller papers (approx. 3000
>words) by Friday 14th March. These will be made available at the
>conference; the extended abstracts will be made available online.
>Selected authors may be invited to revise and extend their papers
>after the conference, for publication in a journal special issue or
>hard-copy book.
>Researchers and practitioners in academia and industry are invited
>to submit proposals for themed sessions in any format. Where a
>special-interest group or well-defined community already exists in a
>topic, they may wish to organise sessions involving a set of related
>presentations, or to hold panel discussions or workshops. Proposals
>for whole sessions of these types should be submitted to the address
>below (electronically if possible). For workshops or panel
>discussions, a 1000-word description is required. For sessions
>consisting of a set of presentations, a 500-word description of the
>session should be submitted, accompanied by a 500-word abstract of
>each intended presentation. All submissions must arrive by the above
>closing date. Proposers will be notified of acceptance by mid-January
>1997. Abstracts and descriptions will be made available online, and
>it will be the responsibility of session organisers to supply updated
>information if session plans alter.
>Poster displays of research in progress are invited for any work
>where a full paper may not be deemed appropriate. In addition,
>demonstrations and exhibits are invited both from industry and from
>academic institutions (commercial exhibitors will be charged for
>exhibition space and use of facilities). For academic proposers in
>either category, 500-word abstracts or descriptions of the proposed
>item must be submitted to the address below (electronically if
>possible), to arrive by the above closing date. These will be
>peer-reviewed as for papers, and authors will be notified of
>acceptance by the end of January. Abstracts will be made available
>online. Commercial exhibitors and demonstrators should contact the
>conference organisers directly at the address below.
>All proposers in any of the above categories must provide affiliation
>details of all named authors or participants, and full contact
>details (including e-mail addresses where possible) of the main
>person for contact. In addition, all proposers in any category must
>specify their probable requirements for presentation facilities such
>as Internet connections, overhead projection (with or without direct
>connection to a computer), slide projection, space, exhibition boards
>and any other specific needs. All proposers will be expected to
>provide their own computing equipment and exhibit materials where
>relevant; any proposers for whom this will be difficult should make
>this clear in their submission.
>It will speed the organisation and review processes considerably if
>submissions are sent electronically, rather than on paper or
>diskette. This can be done by e-mail to the address below, or via
>the World-Wide Web submission form (URL below).
>If diskette submissions are absolutely necessary, the diskette must
>be clearly marked with the submission category, the name of the main
>contact person, and the title. Diskettes should also be accompanied
>by a letter specifying their contents and format; PC and Macintosh
>diskettes will both be acceptable, but files must be in Microsoft
>Word, RTF, HTML or ASCII formats.
>If paper submissions are absolutely necessary, 5 copies of the
>submission must be sent. Typing should be clear, at least 12-point in
>size, and double-spaced. Submissions will not be accepted by fax.
