Call for Papers

Joint Conference on Digital Libraries JCDL 2010

June 21-25, 2010  Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia.


The ACM/IEEE-CS Joint Conference on Digital Libraries (JCDL) is the major international research forum focused on digital libraries and associated technical, practical, and social issues. JCDL encompasses the many meanings of the term “digital libraries”, including (but not limited to) new forms of information institutions; operational information systems with all manner of digital content; new means of selecting, collecting, organizing, distributing, and evaluating digital content; and theoretical models of information media, including document genres and electronic publishing. Digital libraries are distinguished from information retrieval systems because they include more types of media, provide additional functionality and services, and include other stages of the information life cycle, from creation through use. Digital libraries can also be viewed as an extension of the services libraries currently provide.

The theme of JCL 2010 is “Digital Libraries – 10 years past, 10 years forward, a 2020 vision”. This theme reflects the fact that the context in which digital libraries were originally conceived has significantly changed in the context of new information models embodied in Web 2.0 and popular social networking applications. In this spirit, we are especially interested in papers that address and demonstrate new models of collaborative, participatory information interaction increasingly ubiquitous in the Web 2.0 context.

JCDL 2010 invites submissions of papers and proposals for posters, demonstrations, tutorials, and workshops that will make the conference an exciting and creative event to attend. As always, the conference welcomes contributions from all the fields that intersect to enable Digital Libraries. Topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Collaborative and participatory information environments
  • Cyberinfrastructure architectures, applications, and deployments
  • Data mining/extraction of structure from networked information
  • Digital library and Web Science curriculum development
  • Evaluation of online information environments
  • Impact and evaluation of digital information in education
  • Information policy and copyright law
  • Personal digital information management
  • Retrieval and browsing
  • Social networks and networked information
  • Social-technical perspectives of digital information
  • Studies of human factors in networked information
  • Systems, algorithms, and models for data preservation
  • Theoretical models of information interaction and organization
  • Visualization of large-scale information environments
