18th Italian Research Conference on Digital Libraries (IRCDL 2022)
Information and Research Science connecting to Digital and Library Science

Padua, Italy - 24-25 February 2022
Venue: Department of Information Engineering, University of Padua, Italy



Since 2005 the Italian Research Conference on Digital Libraries is a yearly date for researchers on Digital Libraries and related topics, organized by the Italian Research Community. Over the years IRCDL has become an important national forum focused on digital libraries and associated technical, practical, and social issues. IRCDL encompasses the many meanings of the term “digital libraries”, including new forms of information institutions; operational information systems with all manner of digital content; new means of selecting, collecting, organizing, and distributing digital content; and theoretical models of information media, including document genres and electronic publishing. Digital libraries may be viewed as a new form of information institution or as an extension of the services libraries currently provide.

Representatives from academia, government, industry, research communities, research infrastructures, and others are invited to participate in this annual conference. The conference draws from a broad and multidisciplinary array of research areas including computer science, information science, librarianship, archival science and practice, museum studies and practice, technology, social sciences, cultural heritage and humanities, and scientific communities.

This year its focus is on bridging the wide field of Research and Information Science with the related field of Digital Libraries. Indeed, IRCDL historically approached on “Digital libraries” embracing the field at large also comprehending three key areas of interest that can be synthesized as scholarly communication (e.g. research data, research software, digital experiments, digital libraries),e-science/computationally-intense research (e.g. scientific workflows, Virtual Research Environments, reproducibility) and library, archive and information science (e.g. governance, policies, open access, open science).

Submissions are welcome concerning theory, architectures, data models, tools, services, infrastructures about the following topics (but not limited to):

- Applications of Digital Libraries
- Applications of Machine Learning Techniques to Research Data and DL
- Citation Analysis and Scientometrics
- Cultural Heritage Access and Analysis
- Data Citation, Provenance and Pricing
- Data and Information Lifecycle (creation, store, share and reuse)
- Data and Metadata Quality
- Data Repositories and Archives
- Digital Preservation and Curation
- Document Analysis (Layout, Text, Images)
- Knowledge Acquisition from scientific papers
- Knowledge Discovery and Representation in Digital Libraries
- Human-Computer Interaction and User Experience
- Information Extraction from tables and figures in scientific literature
- Information Retrieval and Access
- Metadata (definition, management, curation, integration)
- Multi-media handling
- Ontologies
- Open Data and FAIR Data
- Open Science: models, practices, mandates, and policies
- Quality and evaluation of digital libraries
- Research Infrastructures
- Scholarly Communication
- Semantic Web Technologies and Linked Data for DLs
- Services for Digital Arts and Humanities
- Standards and Interoperability
- User Participation
