the call for papers for OSCOM III is now out. here is the intro paragraph:

Open Source CMS Conference III
Harvard University
April 16-18, 2003 -- , Boston, MA


Call for Participation
Proposals Due: January 15, 2003

The theme of the next OSCOM is "Leveraging content with CMS: authoring and syndication towards the semantic web"
Content management treats content as something static more often than not. Content can be much more than that, though. OSCOM III will show attendees how to make more out of the content that is stored in their CMS, how to make content discoverable, provide annotation and other advanced services. OSCOM III will also explore the frontiers with a look at semantic web technologies, and what they might add to content management in the future.

The theme has several aspects:

  • Content Annotation
  • Content Authoring API
  • Blogger API
  • RDF
  • Dublin Core
  • Multichannel publishing
  • Content discovery
  • Searching
  • Semantic web in general
  • Copyrights, Creative Commons
  • Digital Rights Management
