CFP: ECDL 2008 (European Conference on Research and Advanced Technology for Digital Libraries)
September 14-19, 2008, Aarhus, Denmark

12th European Conference on Research and Advanced Technology for Digital Libraries
September 14-19, 2008
Aarhus, Denmark

Papers, posters and demos are invited for ECDL 2008 in areas including
but are not limited to:
* Concepts of Digital Libraries and digital content
* Collection building, management and integration
* System architectures, integration and interoperability
* Information organisation, search and usage
* Multilingual information access and multimedia content management
* User interfaces for digital libraries
* User studies and system evaluation
* Digital archiving and preservation: methodological, technical and legal issues
* Digital Library applications in e-science, e-learning, e-government, cultural heritage, etc.
* Web 2.0 and associated technologies

The accepted papers and abstract of posters and demos will be published in Springer’s “Lecture Notes on Computer Science” As part of the review process, the best papers and two runner ups will be selected and given a special slot for presentation.

Papers are invited on substantial, original and completed research, applications and development that have not previously been presented elsewhere and that make new contributions to all aspects of Digital Libraries. Papers should present completed work rather than intended
work, and should indicate clearly the state of completion of the reported results. Wherever appropriate, concrete evaluation results should be included. Submissions will be judged on clarity, originality, technical strength, significance and relevance to the conference, and interest to the attendees. Reviewing will be managed by an international Conference Programme Committee which will also take final decisions on the technical program.

Posters and Demos
Poster and Demo presentations offer researchers a unique opportunity
to present late-breaking results, significant work in progress, or
research that is best communicated in an interactive or graphical
format. Poster and demo presentations further provide researchers with
an opportunity to obtain feedback about their work from a wide range
of persons during the poster session.

Accepted posters and demos will be displayed during a dedicated
session, preceded by a plenary poster spotlight presentation session.
The poster and demo session will allow attendees to have first-hand
views of innovative digital library technologies and applications and
to talk informally with system developers and researchers.

The call is also open for contributions to panels, themes, tutorials
and Doctoral Consortium. For more information see the website
