Hi, The subject is not well-defined. It seems the conference is for museum, an organisation that show art and objects to the public. But it could be different when we see some topics we can perhaps choose: - Organizational strategies -> Content management (FreeArchives is a system that manage content but not a "CMS" like Post-Nuke or Spip) - Organizational strategies -> Metadata management (FreeArchives needs metadata to organize documents but these documents are not quite "museum documents" like in Le Louvre, e.g.) - Technical questions -> Development tools and processes (FreeArchives is under development ; one can tell the story of this development) - Technical questions -> Standards and protocols (FreeArchives relies on free software, open standards and protocols ; the subject could be broadened to general documents, cultural heritage, etc.) - Technical questions -> Interfaces and beyond (FreeArchives uses a web interface for its communication with human, but also other kind of interfaces between modules ; but I think they mean stuff like VR, multimedia interactions, etc.).
Since proposals for paper must only explain in >=1 paragraph what will be written in the final paper, we have nothing to loose by writing something. Can we propose a single paper with many topics? One last thing we can do: if FreeArchive will be (nearly) ready in April 2005, we can propose a demonstration "only". It will have less impact, doesn't require to write a paper but require that someone will have to go there.
