An open 2-day conference organised by the GISEDI and IESERV2 projects, sponsored by European Commission DGXIII-E (Lux) held on 21 - 22 January 1999 in Paris, France and hosted by AFNOR and EDIFRANCE.

Aims of the meeting

Standards play a critical role in the emerging electronic publishing market.  Many EU funded projects and industry groups have been actively developing and promoting standards.  The conference provided a forum for presentations of the key issues covering in particular Metadata for Context, Content, and Commerce. This event aimed to assist developers of electronic publishing products and services to address specific business objectives related to standards. 

Day one provided presentations on context and content issues with case studies and discussions of language and discovery issues.  The focus of the conference on day two was on standards related to commerce and covers aspects of ownership and transactions.  The day also included a presentation by the European Commission on developments of the workplan for the 5th Framework Programme and the focus of forthcoming Calls for proposals.
