Seminar with Michele Barbera

Michele Barbera (Net7, Pisa) visits the Wittgenstein Archives 14 June, 2007. In this context, a seminar is organized:

Wednesday, 14 June, 10:30-12.00, Wittgenstein Archives, AKSIS (since 2009 "Uni Digital"), Allégt. 27, meeting room, 1st floor: "HyperJournal"

"I will present HyperJournal, which is an Open Source web application for publishing online Open Access scholarly journals. The presentation will not be a live demonstration of the application nor a guided tour through its features. I will instead focus on what makes HyperJournal different from other journal publishing apps. I will introduce our point of view on the problems posed by the transposition of the traditional scientific publishing model from the paper to the web. We will discuss its weakness and inefficiencies and some possible approaches and technologies that could help to overcome these weaknesses."

Michele Barbera leads the R&D team of Net7 Internet Open Solution, a small italian enterprise whose core business is the development of Open Source software for eScience. His research interests include Compilers and Functional Languages, Semantic Web, Digital Libraries and Humanities Computing.
