The BooksOnline ’10 workshop will be held on October 26, 2010 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, in conjunction with the CIKM 2010 conference. The goal of the workshop is to bring together researchers with interests related to various aspects online reading, including digital collections, user experience, and design and technology. See the Call for Papers for a more detailed description of relevant topics. The workshop is organized by Gabriella Kazai (Microsoft Research, UK) and Peter Brusilovsky (University of Pittsburgh).
This is the third in a series of workshops (the first held in conjunction with CIKM 2008, and the second held in conjunction with ECDL 2009); one interesting addition to this workshop is a £3,000 prize, sponsored by Microsoft Research, to be awarded to one more selected projects.
One of the nice things about this workshop is that its proceedings will be published in the ACM Digital Library, making it an effective venue for disseminating your results.
Another positive is the location: Toronto is a great city with lots of things to do and see, and they don’t roll up their sidewalks at 10 pm. Furthermore, you don’t need a car to get around the downtown core, making it easier to enjoy that nightlife.
