Description:
Science, Technology and Medical (STM) publishing is moving rapidly toward the use of XML, and in particular, toward the use of MathML for the encoding of mathematical data. As a result of this shift, best practices are in flux. Once workflows are established, however, the decisions made today may have wideranging implications for the longterm value of XML document collections. This is particularly true in the areas of metadata, searching and indexing.
To take advantage of this unusual window of opportunity for improving the infrastructure for searching STM documents, the National Science Digital Library program at the National Science Foundation is sponsoring two conferences over the next two years. This workshop, the first of the two, seeks to bring together experts on searching techniques and managers of STM document collections from both academics and industry.
The purpose of the workshop is twofold:
The workshop will consist of both presented papers and working sessions. The conclusions of the workshop will be summarized in a position paper, which will be circulated and publicized in the STM community.
