Call for Papers - TMRA'05
[get PDF Version] TMRA'05 - International Workshop on Topic Maps Research and Applications - provides a forum for community building in the field of Topic Maps research and applications. A main objective of TMRA'05 is to chart the landscape of Topic Maps research. Together we want to identify the primary open issues, who is working on what, bring together researchers and application pioneers, stimulate the systematic tackling of such issues, and foster the exchange of ideas in a non-commercial and stimulating setting. Besides the scientific track, open-space sessions are foreseen as playgrounds for visionaries.
TMRA'05 will take place in The Westin, Leipzig, Germany. TMRA'05 provides an intimate and exciting atmosphere for Topic Maps researchers and application pioneers. It is organised by the Institut für Informations-, Wissens- und Dienstleistungsmanagement, an incorporated non-profit society associated to the University of Leipzig. We are looking for papers with substantial contributions to bring the Topic Maps community together. The workshop language is English.
