[InetBib] Call for Proposals für ELAG 2011, Prag, Mai 2011

Liebe Kolleginnen und Kollegen,

vom 24. bis 27. Mai 2011 trifft sich bei der Technischen
Nationalbibliothek in Prag die European Library Automation Group (ELAG)
zu ihrer 35. Konferenz. Das Programmkomitee bittet um Vorschläge zu
Vorträgen, Workshops und Bootcamps rund um das Thema "It's the context,
stupid!" (und darüber hinaus). Nähere Details zu den Calls for Proposals
finden Sie in der unten angehängten Email des Programmkomitees und auf
Wir freuen uns auf Ihre Ideen!

Dear colleagues,

The ELAG (European Library Automation Group) conference is Europe’s
premier conference on the application of information technology in
libraries.  For over thirty years, the ELAG Conference has provided
library and IT professionals with the opportunity to discuss new
technologies, to review on-going developments and to exchange best practice.

The title of ELAG 2011 “It’s the context, stupid!” is taken from the
title of a 1994 article by Paul Saffo in Wired magazine. In the article,
Saffo wrote "it is not content but context that will matter most a
decade or so from now. The scarce resource will not be stuff, but point
of view."  More than fifteen years later, context has never been so
important in providing information to library users.

Context is critical in many aspects of library services. Libraries serve
different kinds of organisations and users with different needs and
capabilities. How do we know what information to supply, in what format
and with what relevancy ranking without identifying and adapting to
ever-changing contexts? Even the technical environment --
service-oriented architecture, cloud computing and linked data --
provides a context essential to decisions about current and future services.

To help us make ELAG 2011 happen, we are inviting proposals for:

*Pre-Conference Bootcamps: http://www.elag.org/callbc.htm

Half or full-day hands-on, fast-paced workshops prior to the conference

*Conference Presentations: http://www.elag.org/callp.htm

25 minute presentations with 5 minutes for questions from the audience

*Conference Workshops: http://www.elag.org/callw.htm

4 – 5 hour workshops (split into 2 sessions) with a plenary report on
the final day of the conference

We would like to receive proposals on the following sub-themes:

·       Individual information needs: providing services for specific
user contexts

·       Serving users in specific library contexts

·       Context sensitive relevance ranking

·       Blending the Library Management System

·       Library services in the cloud

·       Libraries and Linked Data

·       Product specifics: Sharing your implementation experiences

Further information about these sub-themes is available at:

Perhaps you have another library technology topic that you would love to
tell us about, but it doesn’t fall neatly into one of the sub-themes.
Don’t be shy; tell us anyway!

The deadline for proposals is Monday 31st January 2011.

The results of the review process will be sent by Friday 18th February 2011.

If you have any questions concerning the Call for Proposals, please contact:

Peter van Boheemen (Peter.vanBoheemen@xxxxxx)

Chair of the ELAG 2011 Programme Committee

We look forward to receiving your proposals!

With best wishes
