SHARP 2007 Conference: Open the Book, Open the Mind

* Plenary speakers will include Adrian Johns and Louise Erdrich *

The fifteenth annual conference of the Society for the History of
Authorship, Reading, and Publishing (SHARP) will be held in
Minneapolis at the University of Minnesota on July 11-15, 2007. SHARP
is the leading international association for historians of print
culture, enlisting more than 1,200 scholars world-wide; its members
study "the creation, dissemination, and reception of script and
print, including newspapers, periodicals, and ephemera," as well as
the history of books. The forthcoming conference is organized in
cooperation with the College of Liberal Arts, University of
Minnesota; University of Minnesota Libraries; Minneapolis Public
Library; Minnesota Historical Society, and Minnesota Center for Book
Arts -- a part of Open Book.

The conference theme, "Open the Book, Open the Mind," will highlight
how books develop and extend minds and cultures, and also how they
are opened to new media and new purposes. However, individual papers
or sessions may address any aspect of book history and print or
manuscript culture.

The conference organizers invite proposals for individual
presentations, and also for complete panels of three presentations on
a unifying topic. As is the SHARP custom, each session of 90 minutes
will feature three papers of up to 20 minutes, providing time for
substantive discussion with members of the audience. Proposals should
be submitted via the online conference website by November 30, 2006:
please go to http://purl.oclc.org/NET/SHARP2007proposals and follow
the directions provided there.

Each individual proposal should contain a title, an abstract of no
more than 300 words, and brief biographical information about the
author or co-authors. Session proposals should explain the theme and
goals, as well as include the three individual abstracts.

In keeping with the theme of the conference, a "pre-conference" of
practical workshops and a plenary session devoted to book arts and
artists' books will be held at the Minnesota Center for Book Arts at
Open Book, near the University of Minnesota campus, on Tuesday, July
10, 2007. Details about that pre-conference and about the main
conference program, registration, and housing arrangements will be
made available early in 2007 at the general conference web site,
http://www.cce.umn.edu/conferences/sharp. Much information about
SHARP 2007 and its location, including hotel-reservation information,
is already available there.

         Subject: CfP: ESWC 2007 - 4th European Semantic Web Conference


          ESWC 2007
          4th European Semantic Web Conference

          3 - 7 June 2007
          Innsbruck (Austria)

The vision of the Semantic Web is to enhance today's web via the
exploitation of machine-processable meta data. The explicit
representation of the semantics of data, enriched with domain theories
(Ontologies), will enable a web that provides a qualitatively new
level of service. It will weave together a large network of human
knowledge and makes this knowledge machine-processable. Various
automated services will help the users to achieve their goals by
accessing and processing information in machine-understandable
form. This network of knowledge systems will ultimately lead to truly
intelligent systems, which will be employed for various specialized
reasoning subsystems to accomplish complex tasks. Many technologies
and methodologies are being developed within Artificial Intelligence,
Natural Language Processing, Machine Learning, Databases, Multimedia
Systems, Distributed Systems, Software Engineering and Information
Systems that can contribute towards the realization of this vision.

The 4th Annual European Semantic Web Conference (ESWC 2007) will
present the latest results in research and application of Semantic Web
technologies, including knowledge mark-up languages, Semantic Web
services, and ontology management. ESWC 2007 will also feature a
special industry-oriented event, a forum for gaining a better
understanding of these new technologies and their business
aspects. The conference will offer a tutorial program to get up to
speed with European and global developments in this exciting new area.

Several distinguished scientists will give an invited talk at the
conference; among them, prof. Stefano Ceri (Tech. Univ. of Milan,
Italy), prof. Georg Gottlob (Oxford Univ., UK), prof. Ning Zhong
(Maebashi Institute of Technology, Japan).

ESWC 2007 is sponsored by ESSI - a group of European Commission 6th
Framework Programme projects. Together these projects aim to improve
world-wide research and standardisation in the area of the Semantic
Web. For more information on ESSI, please visit www.essi-cluster.org.


ESWC 2007 welcomes the submission of excellent original research and
application papers dealing with all aspects of the Semantic Web,
particularly those related to the subject areas indicated by the
topics below. We particularly encourage the submission of papers on
industrial efforts and experiences with Semantic Web projects. We
encourage theoretical, methodological, empirical, and applications

The proceedings of this conference will be published in Springer=92s
Lecture Notes in Computer Science series. Paper submission and
reviewing for ESWC 2007 will be electronic, via the conference Web
site: http://www.eswc2007.org/. Papers, due 15 December, 2006, should
not exceed fifteen (15) pages in Springer LNCS format.

Papers may be accepted as (i) full papers, or as (ii) short papers
with poster presentation.
