JCDL Workshop on Mobility and Digital Libraries
        -- Call for Participation --

This workshop will provide a forum to study and discuss the 
implications of both human mobility and mobile devices for digital 
library research. The organizers represent different research 
communities, each of which would have a useful contribution to the 
workshop.  The event itself will bring together an emerging community 
of interest and provide a springboard to encourage innovative mobile DL 

As we become more mobile in our work and learning so does our 
technology. The increasing ubiquity of mobile devices has been one of 
the most visible developments of information technology in recent 
years.  In many areas of library use this technology is becoming 
increasingly important: e.g. in South Africa mobile devices are 
commonplace whilst desktop computers are rare; emerging reading devices 
such as the paper display Sony Reader provide new reading opportunities 
for digital texts; and widespread wireless access means that library 
subscribers increasingly require access from off-site, unpredictable 
locations whilst roaming, creating challenges for authentication and 
rights management etc.

Papers and position papers are invited on the following topics:
   * Provision of existing DL facilities to mobile devices
   * Impact of place and mobility on DL use
   * New DL services that particularly exploit mobility and/or mobile 
   * Hosting DL content on mobile devices; distributed storage, security
   * Social issues of DL and Mobility; privacy, trust.

Submissions on similar, related topics are also welcomed.
Attendees wishing to give a full presentation will be expected to 
submit a four page paper in ACM conference format for review.  Those 
with provisional and early work and wanting to give a short 
presentation should submit a two page ACM format paper for review.  
Submissions should be emailed to George Buchanan 
([log in to unmask]) on or before the 17th April 2006.

Full presentations and position papers will be reviewed for inclusion 
in the workshop proceedings.  The committee will make a selection of up 
to 8 papers for presentation at the workshop.  Position papers are not 
mandatory for attendance at the workshop, but are encouraged by all 

The workshop proceedings will be distributed in print during the 
workshop and electronically via the workshop website.  A journal 
special edition based on the same theme is in preparation, and 
participants will be encouraged to submit extended versions of their 

Submission deadline: 17th April 2006
Acceptance Notification: 7th May 2006
Final Versions: 21st May 2006
Workshop: 15th June 2006

The workshop will be run at the ACM/IEEE Joint Conference - held this 
year at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill.  See for details.
