We are pleased to announce a Call for Papers for a forthcoming special issue of JoDI on Distributed Information Management Guest editor: David De Roure, University of Southampton, UK The important dates are: Submission deadline: February 2, 2001 Publication date: April 2001 There has been much comment recently about the emergence of Peer-to-Peer (P2P) networks. The broader context for this is Distributed Information Management (DIM). JoDI is producing an authoritative special issue on DIM, and papers are invited for consideration. Below is the guest editor's 'call for papers', which can also be found at http://jodi.ecs.soton.ac.uk/calls/dim.html Submission should be via the form at http://jodi.ecs.soton.ac.uk/form.php3 Scope The increase in scale and complexity of distributed information systems, and in the heterogeneity of their digital content, brings a new set of scientific and engineering challenges. For example, how well do established techniques scale up to very large volumes or huge diversity of information? How do we maintain access to digital content when networked resources are not always available? How do we handle ownership and control issues? Can content be self-organising? The aim of this special issue is to identify challenges and explore solutions in the distributed information management field, by drawing together contributions from experts in the major areas. Topics Papers are invited in the following areas (this list is not exhaustive): - Research issues; e.g. 'Ten issues in distributed information management' - Case studies, e.g. experience of large-scale DIM projects - Survey papers - Futurology - impact of technology trends on distributed information management systems - Scaleable models and techniques for accessing, browsing and searching the distributed multimedia information space - Preservation issues in distributed information systems - Specification and implementation of access policies - Methodologies for building distributed multimedia information systems - Management of information evolution and of inconsistency - Emergent computing techniques applied to DIM - Grid computing - building an information grid - DIM issues in pervasive computing systems - Working with live information - Integration of distributed multimedia information systems - Metadata and ontology issues in the distributed context - Distributed systems issues at the information level - Metrics for evaluation of distributed information systems The Journal of Digital Information is a refereed journal published only via the Web. The journal is currently available free to users.
