ECDL 2002 is the 6th conference in the series of European Digital
conferences. ECDL has become the major European forum focusing on
libraries and associated technical, practical, and social issues. ECDL
is continuing the tradition already established by the previous
in meeting the needs of a large and diverse constituency, which includes
practitioners, researchers, educators, policy makers and users.

The focus of ECDL 2002 is on underlying principles, methods, systems and
tools to build and make available to final users effective digital
libraries. Integration of methods, services, systems and
across different data structures, metadata and components are key issues
that will be addressed by ECDL 2002. This annual event is going to be
combined with a number of satellite scientific events, sponsored and
organized by the DELOS Network of Excellence on Digital Libraries, an
initiative funded by the EU FP5 Information Society Technologies
which aims at contributing to the creation of a European digital library
research community, encompassing all the different technology and
application fields.

Submissions on all topic areas are welcome and will receive full and
consideration. Submissions may be full and short papers, posters,
tutorials, or workshops. Although submissions are not restricted in
or scope, we expect that submissions will fall into one or more of the
following broad areas.

  - Research. Significant research results on all aspects of digital
    focusing on integration of methods, interoperability across
    data and metadata structures and algorithms, information and text
    knowledge and multimedia content management, validation also through
    implementation and use, as well as evaluation.

-  Policy. Discussion of significant policy issues related to the
    and economics of digital libraries.

-  System. Systems issues in design, implementation, and building of
    digital libraries, preferably based on prototypes and strongly
backed by
    practical experience.

-  Experience/Evaluation. Analysis of actual implementations of and user
    interaction with digital libraries in different application areas,
possibly including
    contributions from the humanities, semiotics, and other areas.

-  Fundamentals. Studies associating digital libraries with previous
areas of
    thought and discourse. This explicitly includes topics ranging from
    library/information science to philosophy. However, contributions in
    area, as with the other areas, must be accessible to the range of
    attendees, including the more practical outlook of system

ECDL 2002 provides a forum for discussing applications of digital
concepts and techniques in areas not yet really considered as being part
the Digital Library world, such as education and health care
digital earth-sky-law-art and music, humanities, social sciences,
environment monitoring, natural sciences, and historical and scientific
