Call For Papers

The annual Joint Conference on Digital Libraries (JCDL) is the primary international event for the inter- and multi-disciplinary community of academics and practitioners in digital libraries coming from computer, information and social sciences, and other related disciplines. JCDL encompasses the many meanings of the term digital libraries, including notions of managing, operating, developing, curating, evaluating, or utilizing collections of data/information/knowledge in various domains.

JCDL 2022 - Bridging Worlds

In this global pandemic that put many of us into lockdown, quarantine, and separation for a long time, we will do our best to bring together communities and people again. As digital libraries are traditionally strong in connecting the digital and the physical world, we will pick up this heritage and establish a hybrid format that is as open as possible to everyone.


Topics of interest, as they relate to digital libraries, include, but are not limited to:

Users and Interactions
Collaborative and participatory information environments
Crowdsourcing and human computation
Human-information Interaction
Information visualization
Social networks, virtual organizations and networked information
Social media, community building, and applications
User behavior and modeling

Search and Recommendation
AI / Machine Learning/ Data mining for DLs
Dataset retrieval
Information and knowledge systems
Information retrieval
Knowledge discovery
Natural language processing
Navigational and exploratory search
Personalization and contextualization

Digital Libraries in Practice
Digital archiving and preservation
Digital humanities and heritage
Knowledge organization systems in practice
Personal digital information management
Performance evaluation
Policy and law
Privacy and Intellectual property
Scientific data management

Content and Structures
Data curation and stewardship
Document genres
Extracting semantics, entities, and patterns from large collections
Infrastructure and service design
Linked data and its applications
Research data management
Web and network science

Research Papers: Variable Page Length
JCDL 2022 will implement a variable paper length policy for research papers. There is no longer a distinction between long and short papers, nor a need of condensing or enlarging medium-length submissions. The maximum paper length is 10 pages in content plus unrestricted space for references. The minimum paper length is 4 pages in content plus unrestricted space for references. Any page length in between is allowed.
Paper length should be commensurate with contribution size and authors should submit a paper whose length reflects what is needed for the content of the work. The reviewers will assess whether the contribution is appropriate for the given length. Longer papers may be given more presentation time during the conference. We hope this new streamlined process will preserve the variety of paper lengths and foster the exchange of ideas without creating an artificial distinction among them. Reviewers will be explicitly advised to judge the quality of a paper and not its length.

Late Breaking, Preliminary Work, Datasets and Demos
Late breaking results present new insights or information about research that was completed after the full paper submission deadline in January.
Preliminary work are submissions that describe preliminary but novel ideas or results not previously published in other venues.

Dataset submissions are a new category that allow description of research relevant datasets. These need to be either fully publicly-available or have to contain a publicly available subset.
Demonstrations showcase innovative digital libraries technology and applications, allowing you to share your work directly with your colleagues in a high-visibility setting.
The presentation type of late breaking, preliminary work, dataset and demo submission will be decided during the reviewing process.

Submission Guidelines
All submissions must be original works, not previously published or under review for publication elsewhere, in English, in PDF format, and in the current ACM two-column conference format. Suitable LaTeX, Word, and Overleaf templates are available from the ACM Website (use "sigconf" proceedings template for LaTeX and the Interim Template for Word).
All submissions will be rigorously peer-reviewed in a double-blind reviewing process. Submissions must be anonymous and all references to authors’ works have to be anonymised. Submissions are to be made via:
All accepted papers will be included in the proceedings and will be presented at the conference. At least one author of each accepted paper is required to register for, and present the work at the conference at sight in Cologne. In case of travelling restrictions, authors will be enabled to present the work remotely.
Selected best papers will be invited for a special issue to be published with the International Journal on Digital Libraries (IJDL), Springer.
