The Document Academy presents:

DOCAM '04 on:

Documents in Convergent Media Environments

The Second International Conference on Document Research and 
Development in Sciences, Arts and Business

October 22-24, 2004 University of California, Berkeley

DOCAM '04 is the second annual meeting of The Document Academy, an 
international network chaired and cosponsored by The Program of 
Documentation Studies, University of Tromsoe, Norway and The School 
of  Information Management and Systems, UC Berkeley.

This year we have the pleasure of presenting our French partner:

Key-note speaker:
Jean-Michel Salaün, ENSSIB - RTP-DOC
the chief manager of the «Réseau Thématique Pluridisciplinaire 33», 
"Documents et contenu : création, indexation, navigation" (2002 -  ), 
a national network in Information and Communication Sciences and 
Technologies, CNRS (http://rtp-doc.enssib.fr).

The main goal for DOCAM '04 is to develop a space and offer time for 
interdisciplinary and international research cooperation.
The multidisciplinary approach in the project enables us to study the 
problem of converging media from different perspectives, both 
theoretical and experimental. The international environment enables 
presentation and exchange of different scientific traditions as well 
as different social and cultural experiences with convergent media
