 Record Control Number : 11619 
                             Date : 1998-11-19 

Category : Event

General Information : 

A workshop on the recent developments in standards for electronic
publishing will be held in Paris, France, on 21 and 22 January 1999.
This will form part of the Information Engineering concertation
activities (IESERV) and will be sponsored by EDIFRANCE and AFNOR
(French standardisation bodies) through the GISEDI project. This
project aims to demonstrate electronic applications and services for
faster, more effective exchange of geographical data between suppliers
and users, and is funded within the EU's Telematics Applications

The workshop will cover issues related to metadata, in the context of
electronic publishing and intellectual property rights, indexing and
retrieval, interoperability, electronic commerce and security. The
overlap with Extensible Markup Language (XML) and related processing
systems for metadata will also be discussed. Standards such as CORBA
and JAVA to aid distributed processing will provide the focus for
discussions during the workshop, as well as other standards for
creating web statistics that will underlie the emerging digital
information society. 

The workshop will also cover the development of new content standards
for virtual environments which are currently being developed
(VRML,IEEE DIS) and extensions to existing foundations such as MPEG
(MPEG7), as well as retrieval standards such as Z39.50 and Resource
Description Framework (RDF). 

Projects which are not directly concerned with developing standards
may be of interest to the workshop. Presentations from participants
involved in other Telematics Applications projects, describing their
experience on the application of standards in their projects or
organisations are currently sought by the organisers of the workshop.
