technologies, which are in turn transforming scholarly communications,
practices and publishing across the disciplines and around the world.
ELPUB 2007 is devoted to examining the full spectrum of "openness" in
digital publishing, from open source applications for content creation to
open distribution of content, and open standards to facilitate sharing and
open access. We welcome papers with theoretical analysis, description of

* Middleware infrastructure to facilitate awareness and discovery
* Personalisation technologies (e.g. social tagging, folksonomies, RSS,
* Metadata creation, usage and interoperability
* Semantic web issues
