Carnegie Mellon University
June 3-4, 1999
seeks proposals for reports of results and observations from the AMICO
University Testbed Project, to be presented to a joint meeting of Testbed
Participants and AMICO Members.
In the fall of 1998, a select group received early access to the digital
library of museum multimedia created by the Art Museum Image Consortium
(AMICO) as delivered by the Research Libraries Group (RLG). Research
projects have been ongoing on each of these campuses exploring the many
issues and challenges of integrating museum multimedia into university
teaching and research. Proposals are invited for papers and presentations
that report on the University Testbed Experience, and address its Research
Objectives. See http://www.amico.org/univ/univtestbed/u.objectives.html
two-day meeting will bring together researchers engaged in the University
Testbed project, and AMICO Members, so that they can report and discuss
their studies and observations. We hope the many participants in the
AMICO University Testbed Project will enjoy an open dialogue with each
other and with AMICO Members that will build a better understanding
of the issues involved in creating and using The AMICO Library. We look
forward to a lively exchange of opinions and observations and the discussion
of conclusions among a group of informed and engaged researchers.
Selected papers from the Research Conference will be published as a
special issue of Archives and Museum Informatics; the cultural
heritage informatics quarterly, a peer-reviewed journal from Kluwer
A one paragraph (500 word) abstract of the proposed paper, demonstration,
or presentation should be emailed to Jennifer
Trant, Executive Director, Art Museum Image Consortium(AMICO). Include
the full name, title and affiliation of the author(s) along with full
address, telephone, fax and email.
Proposals must be received by April 15, 1999. The program will be announced
by April 30, 1999.
The meeting is open to all staff, students and researchers affiliated
with University Testbed Participants, and AMICO Members. Advance registration
(which will be completed via the AMICO University Testbed website) and
a fee of $75 (US) is required to help cover costs.
