11th International Workshop on Research Issues in Data Engineering (RIDE 2001)
|Event Date/Time: Apr 01, 2001||End Date/Time: Apr 02, 2001|
Document Management is a core technology for advanced business and scientific applications. The Web provides a real world infrastructure for document exchange, and it has become the driving force in the development of electronic commerce applications and online information services. Not surprisingly, many of the W3C standardization efforts on XML are targeted at such applications. Documents are not only used for representing multimedia information content but also for many other purposes, like the representation of metainformation and the specification of component interfaces, protocols and processes. As a consequence many new requirements on document mangement emerge from these new applications. Traditional data models for data management are replaced by document models with consequences for all aspects of information management systems. Distributed document processing leads to new requirements on performance, reliability, and scalability. New functional requirements, as those related to security, authenticity or mobility, come into play.
The objective of RIDE-DM'2001 is to bring together researchers, developers, and users working on the issues related to document management for electronic commerce and other advanced multimedia, business, and scientific applications.
