17th International Conference on Theory and Practice of Digital Libraries

*  *  *

Résumé

Valuable and rapidly increasing volumes of data are produced or transformed into digital form by all fields of science, education, culture, business and government. For this purpose the digital libraries community has developed long-term and interdisciplinary research agendas, providing significant results such as conceptual models, added value infrastructures, software tools, standards and services.

Annonce

The International Conference on Theory and Practice of Digital Libraries constitutes a leading European scientific forum on digital libraries that brings together researchers, developers, content providers and users in the field of digital libraries. The 17th International Conference on Theory and Practice of Digital Libraries (TPDL 2013) is organized by the University of Malta and it will be held in Valetta, Malta on September 22-26, 2013.

Argument

Valuable and rapidly increasing volumes of data are produced or transformed into digital form by all fields of science, education, culture, business and government. For this purpose the digital libraries community has developed long-term and interdisciplinary research agendas, providing significant results such as conceptual models, added value infrastructures, software tools, standards and services.

The advent of the technologies that enhance the exchange of information with rich semantics is on the centre of the discussions of the community. Information providers inter-link their metadata with user contributed data and offer new services outlooking to the  development of a web of data and addressing the interoperability and long-term preservation challenges.

Topics

General areas of interests include, but are not limited to, the following topics, organized in four categories, according to a conceptualization that coincides with the four arms of the Maltese Cross:

 Foundations

  • Information models
  • Digital Library conceptual models and formal issues
  • Digital Library 2.0
  • Digital library education curricula
  • Economic and legal (e.g. rights management), landscape for digital libraries
  • Theoretical models of information interaction and organization
  • Information policies
  • Studies of human factors in networked information
  • Scholarly primitives
  • Novel research tools and methods with emphasis on digital humanities
  • User behavior analysis and modeling
  • Social-technical perspectives of digital information

Infrastructures

  • Digital Library architectures

  • Interoperability and Information integration
  • Digital Curation and related workflows
  • Preservation, authenticity and provenance
  • Web archiving
  • Social media, and dynamically generated content for particular uses/communities (education, science, public, etc.)
  • Crowdsourcing
  • 3D models indexing and retrieval
  • Authority management issues

Services

  • Information Retrieval and browsing
  • Multilingual and Multimedia Information Retrieval
  • Personalization in digital libraries
  • Context awareness in information access

Submission guidelines

TPDL 2013 under the general theme "sharing meaningful information", invites submissions describing original, unpublished research and not (and will not be) simultaneously under consideration for publication elsewhere, for the proliferation of scientific and research osmosis in the following categories: Full Papers, Short Papers, Posters and Demonstrations, Workshops and Tutorials, Panels and Doctoral Consortium.

All submissions will be reviewed on the basis of relevance, originality, importance and clarity in a triple peer review process.

The TPDL 2013 proceedings will be published by Springer-Verlag in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series (http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs). Therefore all submissions should conform to the formatting instructions described in the "For Authors" webpage (http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs?SGWID=0-164-6-793341-0).

According to the Registration Regulation for TPDL 2013, inclusion of papers in the Proceedings is conditional upon registration of at least one author per paper.

The authors of the best research papers presented to TPDL2013 will be invited to submit substantially extended versions of their paper for publication in a Focused Issue of the International Journal on Digital Libraries (http://www.springer.com/computer/database+management+%26+information+retrieval/journal/799).

Doctoral Consortium papers will be published by the Bulletin of the IEEE Technical Committee on Digital Libraries (IEEE-TCDL Bulletin, http://www.ieee-tcdl.org/Bulletin/current/index.html). For Doctoral Consortium, papers are expected to have a maximum of 8-10 pages, including references. Papers is recommended to be formatted according to Springer LNCS guidelines.

Full papers (12 pages), short-papers (6 pages), posters and demonstrations (4 pages) must be written in English and submitted in PDF format.
