Call for papers--Digital libraries

From: Carl Rauch <rauch<-a>
Date: Saturday, January 29, 2005
9th European Conference on
Research and Advanced Technology for Digital Libraries
Vienna, Austria
September 18-23, 2005


ECDL 2005 is the 9th conference in the series of European Digital
Library conferences. ECDL has become the major European conference
on digital libraries, and associated technical, practical, and
social issues, bringing together researchers, developers, content
providers and users in the field. ECDL 2005 is jointly organized by
the Vienna University of Technology (VUT), the Austrian National
Library (ONB), and the Austrian Computer Society (OCG).

ECDL 2005 invites original contributions focusing on research and
development supporting information access and exploration both from
a technology perspective as well as in different application-domains
such as science, e-government, cultural heritage, etc.

Topics of contributions include (but are not limited to):

    Concepts of Digital Libraries and Digital Documents
    System Architectures, Integration and Interoperability
    Information Organization, Search and Usage
    User Studies and System Evaluation
    Digital Preservation
    Digital Library Applications

Full paper submission: Papers (maximum 12 pages for full papers, max
8 pages for short papers in Springer LNCS format) should report on
original, completed research, applications and development that have
not previously been presented elsewhere and that make new
contributions to the conference topics.

The full text of papers in English (no extended abstracts) is
required at the initial submission stage for review, and must follow
the format guidelines given below. In the spirit of digital
libraries all papers must be submitted electronically via the
conference web page.

The proceedings will be published by Springer in the series of
Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS), in hard copy and
electronic form. The authors must follow the guidelines for the LNCS
format provided by Springer
(<URL:>) already for
the initial full text submission. (We recommend the use of LaTeX2e
for best results and easiest handling of your documents (now and in
the future), but Springer also provides a template for Microsoft
Windows.) It is the responsibility of authors to ensure that their
submission use no unusual format features and are printable on a
standard Postscript printer.

For the initial full text submission for review, authors are
requested to submit the paper as a single PDF file. (If this
constitutes a hardship, or if you have problems submitting the paper
via the web-based conference management review system, please
contact the program chairs by email pc_chairs<-a t->ecdl2005< . >org to
arrange an alternative means of submission.) All papers will be
reviewed by at least 3 members of the Program Committee.

Papers are to be submitted via the ECDL2005 Conference Management
system by the submission deadline.

Final camera-ready submission: If accepted, camera-ready versions of
papers incorporating changes recommended by the Reviewers, are to be
submitted both in PDF as well as in source format (LaTeX, Microsoft
Word or RTF). Detailed information will be provided with the
acceptance notification, and all final versions will have to be
submitted by the submission deadline for final versions. Accepted
papers MUST be presented by an/the author at the conference.
