Aims of the meeting

Standards play a critical role in the emerging electronic publishing market.  Many EU funded projects and industry groups have been actively developing and promoting standards.  The workshop aims to provide a forum for presentations of the key issues covering in particular Metadata for Context, Content, and Commerce. This event will assist developers of electronic publishing products and services to address specific business objectives related to standards. 

Day one provides presentations on context and content issues with case studies and discussions of language and discovery issues.  The focus of the conference on day two is on standards related to commerce and covers aspects of ownership and transactions.  The day also includes a presentation by the European Commission of developments in the workplan for the 5th Framework Programme and the focus of forthcoming Calls for proposals.
