TPDL 2016 - International Conference on Theory and Practice of Digital Libraries

5-9 September 2016
Hannover, Germany
Twitter: @TPDL2016

The International Conference on Theory and Practice of Digital Libraries (TPDL) constitutes a leading scientific forum on digital libraries that brings together researchers, developers, content providers and users in the field of digital libraries. TPDL 2016 will take place in Hannover, Germany on September 5-9, 2016. The conference will be jointly organized by the L3S Research Center and the German National Library of Science and Technology.

2016 is not only the 20th edition of the conference; it is also the 300th anniversary of the death of the German polymath and philosopher Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz in Hannover.

Aims and scope
Valuable and rapidly increasing volumes of data are created or transformed into digital form by all fields of scientific, educational, cultural, and governmental and industry activities. For this purpose the digital libraries community has developed long-term and interdisciplinary research agendas, providing significant results, such as development of Digital Libraries, solving practical problems, accommodating research data and satisfying the needs of specific user communities.

The advent of the technologies that enhance the exchange of information with rich semantics is of particular interest in 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.

TPDL 2016 under the general theme "Overcoming the Limits of Digital Archives", invites submissions for scientific and research work in the following categories: Full Papers, Short Papers, Posters and Demonstrations, Workshops and Tutorials, Panels and Doctoral Consortium.

Industry submissions are especially welcome, and a dedicated conference track is designed for them.

General areas of interests include, but are not limited to, the following topics:

Connecting digital libraries
- exploring semantic web and linked data
- data mining and extraction of structure from networked information
- multilingual information retrieval
- temporal aspects
- metadata aggregation models
- interoperability and information integration
- ontologies and knowledge organization systems, networked information
- applications of digital libraries

Practice of digital libraries
