Linkage Workshop


DATE: Wednesday, June 9, 1999
TIME: 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
PLACE: The Westin Copley Place
10 Huntington Avenue
Boston, MA


The second invitational workshop on reference linking will be held on June 9, 1999 from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the Westin Copley Place in Boston in conjunction with the annual conference of the Society of Scholarly Publishers. The agenda of the June workshop will focus on the report of the Reference Linking Working Group, and issues arising from the report such as scenarios for implementing standard reference linking systems, ways of dealing with the so-called Harvard problem, and ways to shape an environment that can accommodate a variety of reference linking models, including those that depend on lookup databases as well as those that depend on "calculable" identifiers. The Working Group met as scheduled on April 20 and has drafted a report which is circulating among the group members and will be available to the members of this list early next week, almost 3 weeks ahead of schedule. The final agenda for the workshop will depend in large part on the issues raised on this list in response to the Working Group report.
