  1. DELOS NoE DELOS Network of Excellence on Digital Libraries Vittore Casarosa CNR-IEI, Pisa, Italy

  2. DELOS NoE - Objectives • Contribute towards improving effectiveness of European research in this important area • Provide forum where researchers, practitioners, representatives of interested applications and industries can exchange ideas and experiences • Co-operate with on-going standardisation activities in relevant fields for the DL domain • Facilitate take-up of DL technologies in all interested application communities • Improve international cooperation in DL research areas

  3. NoE Activity Organisation • The Network activities are organised in a set of Forums: • Research Forum • Evaluation Forum • Standardisation Forum • Training and Knowledge/Technology Transfer Forum • International Co-operation Forum

  4. Digital Library Research Forum Objectives: • to stimulate and co-ordinate actions aiming at the advancement of research in the DL domain • to improve scientific collaboration between European and worldwide research teams working in this area Actions: • Thematic Workshop Series • European Conference on Digital Libraries Series • Brainstorming Workshops • DELOS-NSF Joint Working Groups

  5. Research ForumThematic Workshops Series • “Information Seeking, Searching, and Querying in Digital Libraries”, Zurich,11-12 Dec. 2000 • “Personalization andRecommendation Systems in Digital Libraries”, Dublin, 18-20 June 2001 • “Interoperability in Digital Libraries”, Darmstadt, 8-9 September 2001 • “Evaluation of DLs: Testbeds, Measurements, and Metrics”, Budapest, 6-7 June 2002 • “DLs:Users and User Behaviour” (proposed) • “Non-Traditional Data In Digital Libraries” (proposed) • “Agents and Roles in Digital Libraries” (proposed)

  6. Research ForumEuropean Conference onDL European Conference on Digital Libraries, “ECDL 2000” Lisbon, 18-20 September 2000 European Conference on Digital Libraries, “ECDL 2001” Darmstadt,5-7 September 2001 European Conference on Digital Libraries, “ECDL 2002” Rome, 18-20 September 2002 European Conference on Digital Libraries, “ECDL 2003” Trondheim, 17-22 August 2003 European Conference on Digital Libraries, “ECDL 2004” UK, September 2004

  8. Research ForumDELOS/NSF Joint Working Groups • Digital Imaging for Significant Cultural and Historical Materials • Spoken-Word Digital Audio Collections • Information Extraction from Digital Libraries • Personalization and Recommender Systems in Digital Libraries • Emerging Language Technologies andRediscovery of the Past • Preservation and Archiving • Evaluation and Test Suites • Agents in Digital Libraries

  9. Digital Library Evaluation Forum Objectives: • to accelerate and enhance research into digital libraries • to provide appropriate testbeds for evaluating research in the DL domain Actions: • Digital Library Test Suite • Cross-Language Evaluation • Evaluation of Cross-Language Spoken Document Retrieval System (feasibility study)

  10. Evaluation ForumTest Suite • A DL Test Suite WG has been set-up • Description scheme for digital collections • Survey on existing DL test collections • Building of a metalibrary of DL test collections • Further development of the metalibrary of DL test collections • Evaluation of XML document retrieval

  11. Evaluation ForumCross-Language Evaluation • CLEF 2001Evaluation Campaign (January - August 2001) • Multilingual information retrieval (5 languages) • Bilingual information retrieval • Monolingual information retrieval • Mono- and bilingual domain-specific system evaluation • Interactive system evaluation (experimental track) • CLEF 2001 Workshop • Cross-Language Retrieval andEvaluation, Darmstadt, 3-4 September 2001 • CLEF now established as an independent activity separately funded by the European Commission • CLEF 2002 Workshop in connection with ECDL 2002
