Internet e-commerce environment?  See examples of how the portals and
transactional services succeed and fail: Amazon.com, E-Bay, E-Trade, and
Yahoo.  Along the way, you'll build up a list of tips on what works and
what doesn't.

Patricia E. Sabosik
“Next Generation of Internet Publishing:  Packaging Content, Context,
and Commerce”
:
Patricia E. Sabosik is Vice President and General Manager of
ScienceDirect, Elsevier's Internet publishing initiative, where she is
responsible for product development, business development and licensing,
and marketing for ScienceDirect, ScienceDirect OnSite, the ScienceServer

:
ABSTRACT: Content alone will not make a successful web site or Internet
business today.  Packaging content, whether scientific journals
articles, research reports, abstract databases, stock quotes, or news in
a contextual setting to stimulate usage or drive a purchase–the context
and commerce scenario–is the hallmark of the next generation of Internet
publishing.  Linking strategies, whether to internal content or to
external databases, will help shape the context discussion; Web page
design and consumer behavior will shape the e-commerce discussion.  This
presentation will cover new Web-based publishing technologies and
personalization software, customization and the benefits of serving
dynamic HTML, capturing credit card information and building customer
profiles.

“Shortening the Internet Publishing Cycle with Web- Based Distributed
Authoring Systems”
:
Keith H. Cox is a Principal and co-founder of Corporate Technology
Ventures, a technology consulting and Internet software development
company based in Philadelphia.  He currently also serves as a senior
executive for MedCases, a new venture focused on physician education

Pennsylvania and a M.S. from Cornell University, 1977.
:
ABSTRACT:  Keith Cox will speak about recent innovations in using the
Internet for collaborative authoring of educational content by
physicians working from locations throughout the United States.  The key
to this system is Web-based software that provides structure for the
authoring process and stores work in progress in a commonly accessible
database in a central location.  This system has the obvious benefit of
accelerating the development and review of content and preparing it for
Web distribution.  Experience also indicates that collaborative
authoring via the Web may facilitate innovative collaborative
relationships among authors that would be hard, if not impossible, to
duplicate using traditional content development processes.

Bernadette Williams
“Toolkits: You Don’t Just Pop and Play”
:
Bernadette Williams has been part of the Institute for Scientific
Information (ISI) organization for over 10 years.  At ISI she has been
involved in a number of initiatives relating to data-warehousing and the

department which is specifically responsible for maintaining ISI's main
bibliographic relational data store as well as special projects
incorporating homogeneous Client/Server platforms.  She has worked with
the IBM Almaden research team as well as other ISI partners in various
projects.
:
ABSTRACT:  E-commerce toolkits do offer a "jump-start," but the
implementation demands careful planning and project management from the
moment your organization decides to take it on through the day you take
your first electronic commerce transaction.  How successfully business
units and technical units within the organization are able to
collaborate can be the determining factor in successfully implementing
an e-commerce initiative.  A professional team needs to be able to
harmonize customer and user needs with the business requirements of the
organization–all according to strategic objectives; appropriate
understanding of existing infrastructure and programming resources; and
realistic time frames.  This case study will look at an implementation
from business concept to actuality, beginning with the initial research
effort and continuing through the beta-phase of the e-commerce
initiative.

Information Technology, where he was instrumental in the modernization
of AIP's massive composition service, which produces nearly 300,000
pages of research journals and books each year.  Tim's prior career
opportunities included work in computer systems development for Grumman
Aerospace, office automation for Wang Laboratories, and fifteen years in
physics education, where he was awarded the Distinguished Service
Citation by the American Association of Physics Teachers.  Tim is active
in the Professional and Scholarly Publishing Division of the Association
of American Publishers and the Council of Engineering and Scientific
Society Executives.  He holds a B.S. from Creighton University and an
M.Ed. from the University of Nebraska–Lincoln.
:
ABSTRACT:  After decades of reliance on income from subscription sales,
the emergence of online journals has provided the opportunity and need
for publishers to experiment with different selling models.  The
American Institute of Physics was among the first to offer individual
article sales with immediate online document delivery for its journals.
This presentation will provide a case study of the project, including
early results and lessons learned.  As this is just the first step in
the evolution of AIP's e-commerce initiatives, plans for additional
products and services will also be described.

Jim Drier
“Using Openlinks Toolkit: An Aggregator’s Perspective”
:
Jim Drier is currently Vice President, Academic and Corporate Markets,
for Ovid Technologies.  Previously, Jim was the Vice President,
Publisher Relations and before that he was the International Managing
Director for Ovid.  (All in four and a half short years, which Jim
thinks says something about his attention span and the nimbleness of
Ovid.)  Prior to joining Ovid, Mr. Drier worked in the Library
Management Systems world where he was the Sales Director for Notis
Systems and for Geac Computers.  He has also worked for R.R. Bowker and
Baker & Taylor.  Before that Jim was just a kid.  He has a M.A. in
English Literature and a B.A. in Liberal Arts.  Jim enjoys running,
tennis, golf, and basketball.  His favorite movie is It’s a Wonderful
Life.
:
ABSTRACT: This talk will be a case study of how a software
developer/aggregator of bibliographic indexes and electronic journals
deals with the issues of answering the overall information needs of its
customers.  Ovid Technologies is a software developer that has
integrated numerous STM bibliographic indexes and delivers these to the
research community via Ovid software.  Over the past four years, Ovid
has integrated numerous electronic full- text journals into its
offerings.  This allows the researcher to create a search in the
bibliographic index of his/her choice and then link from the reviewed
citation to the electronic article integrated under Ovid's service.
While this has offered tremendous functionality to Ovid’s users it has
also raised their overall expectations. Users now want access to all
full text using Ovid's integrated approach.  The dilemma for Ovid has
been: how do we offer access to the electronic resources we were unable
to integrate into our service because publishers of these resources were
not open to licensing to third party providers?  Ovid has created an
open toolkit for its customers that will allow sites to define links
from popular bibliographic databases to external, non-Ovid resources
using standard metadata available in the bibliographic citations.

:
ABSTRACT:  Privacy protection is a reality in today's online world.
Consumers fears are growing, and Web sites may find themselves in hot
water with their customers, their business partners and the government
without solid privacy policies in place.  In this session, attendees
will learn about the current legal environment, how companies are
addressing privacy concerns, and how differing international norms
affect online activities.  The latest feedback from online consumer
focus groups about their concerns about privacy and Internet marketing
will also be presented.  This session will focus on helping companies be
proactive in addressing consumer concerns while still being able to take
advantage of the benefits of the Internet and e-commerce.

TechTransit.  Ms. Thompson was recently recognized by Federal Computer
Week as a "Federal 100"–a group of 100 executives judged to have had the
greatest impact on the government systems community in the past year.
:
ABSTRACT: The Defense Technical Information Center (DTIC) develops
and/or hosts many Department of Defense Web sites that are high profile
targets for the hacker community.  DTIC has implemented a technical
architecture that improves security, scalability, reliability and
flexibility while maintaining public access to the Web sites.  DTIC
continues to focus on security of the architecture because hacker
traffic targeting our systems has increased in the past five years from
an incident every few months to a dozen or more attacks per day.  No Web
service provider can guarantee that public access Web sites are hacker
proof–however, the practical steps that DTIC has taken have made our Web
sites hacker resistant!

ABSTRACT:  The recent explosion of new companies and new businesses
within existing companies has given us a large number of business models
to look at. Some are intended to be profitable enterprises and some are
experiments.  By examining the models, we can extrapolate and speculate
on what the future will be like for e-business, especially e-businesses
specializing in information distribution.  Our dream in the information
industry was always that everyone would go online.  We finally have
realized our dream, but not exactly the way we wished it to be.

ABSTRACT: Things are done differently by Internet companies than by the
traditional secondary publisher.  Some things are the same methodology
using different tools, some just have new names, but there are some
significant and fundamental differences in the approach to e-commerce
and Internet traffic.  This paper will cover the differences in the
theory and technologies which give rise to new tools for indexing,
vocabulary control, and text management in the SGML/XML environment.
