16th International Conference on Electronic Publishing
June 14-15, 2012, Guimarães, Portugal

Social Shaping of Digital Publishing: 
Exploring the interplay between Culture and Technology

Since the advent of the Web the processes and forms of electronic 
publishing have been changing. The Open Access movement has been a major 
driver of change in recent years in regard to scholarly communication. 
However, on other fields of application, such as e-government or 
e-learning, the changes are also evident. These are, in most cases, driven 
by technological advances, but there are many cases where social reality 
change pushes technology development. The social and the mobile Web and 
linked data are currently shaping the edge of research on digital 
publishing. Liquid publishing is on the more daring agendas. Digital 
Preservation is an issue that poses great challenges, still far from 
solved. The legal issues, security and trust continue to deserve our full 
attention.  We need new visualization techniques and Innovative Interfaces 
that keep pace with the global dimension of information. This is the 
current scenario, but what will follow? What technologies and social and 
communication paradigms will we be discussing in ten or twenty years?
Elpub 2012 will be focusing on the social shaping of digital publishing by 
exploring the interplay between culture and technology. It is fitting that 
we are hosting the conference in the European Capital of Culture for 2012, 
We welcome a wide variety of papers from members of the communities whose 
research and experiments are transforming the nature of electronic 
publishing and scholarly communications. Topics include but are not 
restricted to these seven main areas:
1 - Digital Scholarship, Open Access and Open Science
Concepts, models and innovative applications in the field of scholarly 
communication. Results of recent studies on current practices. New tools 
and / or results of studies of their applicability. Positioning on new 
2 ?Interoperability and the Intelligent Web 
Concepts, models and innovative applications that are based on the 
paradigms of the Semantic Web. Metadata, linked data and open linked data, 
text mining, traceability, scalability, rules,  inference and agents on 
open environments. Cloud computing and related applications, services and 
studies. Demonstration applications. Results of field studies and software 
3 ? The Social and Mobile Web
Concepts, models and innovative applications for the social Web and for 
the mobile Web. Challenges and achievements of electronic publishing in 
mobile environments. Context-aware pervasive systems. Geo-location and 
electronic publication. Information retrieval. The social Web in mobile 
environments. Results of field studies and software applications.
4 ? The legal, secure and trustful Web 
Copyright and legal issues. Convergence, divergence and relationships 
between existing copyright models. Machine-readable information and 
interoperability on copyright. Authentication. Security and privacy on 
publishing and in cloud computing. Theoretical models or tools to ensure 
the reliability of sources. Results of field studies and software 
5 ? Innovative interfaces, interaction and visualization
New models of interfaces for electronic publication. New interfaces for 
impaired people. Models and visualization applications for Web 3.0 and 4.0 
and for cloud computing. Results of field studies and software 
6 ? Failures and learnings
Papers that report experimentations that did not work and lessons learned 
from those failures.

Position papers with new insights for the future. New scholarly constructs 
and discourse methods. Innovative business models for electronic

of today’s continually evolving online and mediated technological
environment, “CHANGES” has been chosen as the theme for LIDA 2012,
which is divided into two parts. The first part addresses advances in
applications and practice and the second part covers research and
development. LIDA 2012 brings together researchers, educators,
practitioners, and developers from all over the world in a forum for
personal exchanges, discussions, and learning, made memorable by being
held in an enchanting and spectacularly beautiful city on the shore of
the Adriatic Sea.
