Call For Papers

The 25th conference on Theory and Practice of Digital Libraries ( takes place under the general theme of “Linking Theory and Practice”. This emphasises TPDL’s role over the last 25 years as a forum that brings together researchers and practitioners whose work intersects with Digital Libraries. Regardless of how your work connects with Digital Libraries, we invite you to submit your work as a full, practitioner, short, demo, or poster paper. We also invite submissions for workshops, tutorials, and our doctoral consortium.

Due to the global situation TPDL 2021 will take place online from 13. to 17. September 2021. This is also an important statement towards making academia environmentally responsible and lowers the barriers towards participation. To ensure that you do not miss out on the in-the-corridor chats, the conference will include a full virtual social programme.
