Call for Contributions
19th International Conference on Theory and Practice of Digital Libraries
Poznan„, Poland, September 14-18, 2015

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 2015 will
be organized by Poznan Supercomputing and Networking Center (PSNC)
and it will be held in Poznan, Poland on September 14-18, 2015.

* Aims and scope * Valuable and rapidly increasing volumes of data are
created or transformed into digital form by all fields of scientific,
educational, cultural, 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,
accomodating research data and satisfying the needs of specific user

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 2015 under the general theme "Connecting Digital Collections",
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 planned for them if many quality submissions are

All submissions will be reviewed on the basis of relevance, originality,
importance and clarity in a triple peer review process. The TPDL 2015
proceedings will be published by Springer-Verlag in the Lecture Notes
in Computer Science series (http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs).

The TPDL2015 Program Committee will also nominate papers they consider
highlight work of significance in the field. Authors of these papers
are then invited to submit extended version (at least 30% new material)
of their papers. These submissions then go through the International
of Digital Libraries (IJDL, ISSN 1432-5012) review process before
acceptance in a focused issue of the journal.
