Present CFP : 2022

Over the years TPDL was established as an important international forum focused on digital libraries and associated technical, practical, and social issues. TPDL encompasses the many meanings of the term “digital libraries” embracing the whole spectrum of the LAM community; 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, cultural heritage institutions, 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, digital humanities, and scientific communities.

TPDL historically approached “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, museum and information science (e.g. governance, policies, open access, open science). As digital cultural heritage ties into digital humanities, TPDL aims to include this closely connected field as well.

TPDL 2022 is hosted by the University of Padua and will take place in Padua, Italy from 20 to 23 September 2022. We aim at going back to a full in-presence event. This choice does not exclude the possibility to follow talks online, but authors of accepted papers are strongly encouraged to come and present in person. We aim at encouraging discussion both formal after a paper presentation and informal during social events and coffee breaks.
