The 7th International Congress of  European University Information
Systems Berlin, Humboldt University, March 26 - 30, 2001

We proudly announce an event on Computing, Networking and Libraries the
7 International Congress of European University Information Systems in
Berlin, March 26 - 30, 2001 . The Changing Universities - The Role of
This three-day Congress brings together university leaders in higher
education information technology, heads of libraries and media centers
from hundreds of European universities and other organisations to
explore new directions in research, teaching and administration.
EUNIS is an international, nonprofit association whose mission is to
support and enable transformational change in higher education by
introducing, using, and managing information resources and technologies
in teaching, learning, scholarship, research, and institutional

Submissions of papers covering the following six areas are welcome:

1. Co-operation Between European Universities
European Universities in the 21 Century will benefit from cooperation
across national boundaries. What are the main areas in which such
co-operation should be promoted? What examples of cooperation are there
existing? Which experiences of succesful cooperations have already been

2. Supporting change in Learning and Teaching
Under the impact of international influences and new media new
approaches were made to the way in which the learning process takes
places in Universities. The web is the mediawhich is bringing about most

of these changes. This conference will consider these new approaches and

the support issues we are all face.
We welcome contributions which examine the opportunities and challenges
presented by on-line learning, web based instruction and distance

3. Changes in University Organisation and Structure
The application of technology leads to significant changes in the
Universities' administrative processes. This will also have an impact on

the structure of management within the University. Security and staffing

issues are also affected.
Contributions which describe how these changes have been implemented,
how they have affected University administrative staff and their working

practices are welcome.
The funding of the information technology will also be an issue of the

4. New Technologies, New Capabilities and New Opportunities
Our business is changing as new technologies arrive. High performance
computing and networking including supercomputing, cluster computing,
computational grids and metacomputing, or visualization including
realtime applications like video-on-demand or virtual reality, are
examples of capabilities which become even much more important for
scientific computing at universities in the future.
Which emerging technologies and capabilities  are there? How should we
as promoters of information systems in our Universities respond? How can

we support the ever-growing list of new areas of application and new
Which cooperation possibilities are there on national or European levels

aiming at latest high-end technology in a period of small budgets?

5. Libraries and Multimedia in the Digital Age
In the digital age the activities of libraries, multimedia centres and
computer centres increasingly overlap. This has not only an impact on
the work of these individual departments within the Universities, but
also leads to questions of whether some convergence of structure should
be considered. What are the main opportunities for collaboration between

these separate functions? Which examples of collaboration are already
there and from which others can benefit?

6. IT and Network Computing Security
Universities are confronted with a multitude of potential security
problems using IT in teaching and research and using networks,
originating from the inside as well as from malevolent attackers
What procedures can be established to deal with security-related
How can training and education in Network Computing Security improve the

reliability of digital services?
What new concepts and trends in Information Security will affect our
universities in teaching and research in the near future?
Authors are encouraged to submit abstracts containing results related to

the above mentioned subjects to the Chairman of the Programme Committee.

Abstracts must be submitted in electronic form to the email address
