XI All-Russian Scientific Conference RCDL?2009
?Digital Libraries: Advanced Methods and Technologies, Digital Collections?

Petrozavodsk, September 17 ? 21, 2009

The deadline for extended abstracts: April 15th, 2009

The Conference is open for international participation.

RCDL'2009 is the eleventh conference in the series of All-Russian scientific conferences ?Digital
Libraries: Advanced Methods and Technologies, Digital Collections?. Hundreds of scientists from the
leading scientific centers of Austria, Germany, Greece, Italy, New Zealand, Russia, the USA, Ukraine
and other countries have taken part at the RCDL conferences over the period of 10 years.
Traditionally, Russian Information Retrieval Evaluation Seminars - ROMIP ( are held
together with RCDL. In 2009 the RCDL conference is planned to co-locate not only with ROMIP
Seminars but also with the 3rd Russian Summer School for Young Scientists in Information Retrieval
- RuSSIR?2009 ( During RuSSIR?2009 leading Russian and foreign scholars
would give survey lectures about the important issues of the development of digital data retrieval
methods for basic and applied problems solving.

Conference Objectives
Digital Libraries (DL) is a field of research and development aiming to promote the theory and
practice of processing, dissemination, storage, search and analysis of various digital data. Digital
Libraries acting as knowledge depositories can be considered as complex information systems,
development and use of which require solutions of numerous scientific, technological,
methodological, economic, legal and other issues. Development of Digital Libraries technologies is
becoming more and more essential for raising standards of health care, education, science and
economy, as well as the quality of life on the whole. Projects devoted to the generation of ? digital
form of the information concerning the Earth, Universe, Literature, Art, Environment and Humans,
accumulated by the humanity, are examples of the intensive development of global information

The information about the first ten RCDL conferences (1999 ? St. Petersburg, 2000 ? Protvino, 2001
? Petrozavodsk, 2002 ? Dubna, 2003 - St. Petersburg, 2004 ? Puschino, 2005 ? Yaroslavl, 2006 ?
Suzdal, 2007 ? Pereslavl-Zalessky, 2008 ? Dubna) can be found at
The principal objective of the series of the conferences is to promote the constituting of a community
of Russian experts involved in research related to digital libraries. The Conference offers such a
community an opportunity to discuss ideas and outcomes and to make contacts for closer
cooperation. The Conference also promotes the study of international experience, the development
of the international cooperation on Digital Libraries. That is the reason why papers describing the
advanced directions of research and development are especially welcomed. Young authors or co-
authors of the projects, presented at the Conferences, can ask for RFBR support in the framework of
the annual contest ?mob 3 ros? (participation of young scientists in scientific procedures, held in
Russia). Taking into consideration the fact that RCDL?2009 and RUSSIR?2009 would be co-located,
special measures to involve young participants of RUSSIR?2009 to the active attendance of
RCDL?2009 are planned. More information about such measures will be published at the RCDL?2009

Considerable attention in the RCDL agenda is devoted to practical projects solving complicated
problems. RCDL places much focus on the researches aimed to develop Very Large Digital Libraries
(VLDL), including application of service-oriented and grid-oriented architectures, maintenance of their
quality, promotion of VLDL interoperability and sustainability, development of VLDL management
models. The special interest is given to the application of modern scientific approaches in the context
of high loads: hundreds of thousands of users, tens of gigabytes of data, terabytes of traffic.
The RCDL program traditionally includes tutorials devoted to the analysis of an up-to-date state in
one of the related areas. The significant RCDL aim is to attract young scientists and students to work
on actual problems in this sphere: informal opinion exchange between the representatives of science,
higher school and industry is planned. The best RCDL papers, prepared by students or
postgraduates, will be awarded.

We expect the participation of researchers from Europe and USA, which would contribute to the
international information exchange and cooperation.
The Conference Proceedings will be published as a collection of full accepted papers, short
presentations and abstracts of posters as well as an electronic publication at the Conference Web-

Conference topics include the following guidelines and developments in digital libraries:
1. Methods and models for information representation.
2. Metadata, ontologies and instruments for knowledge representation.
3. Perspective infrastructures of digital libraries, digital libraries in grid-environment.
4. Virtual research environments.
5. Social nets and digital libraries.
6. Tools for digital libraries and digital collections creation.
7. Methods and technologies of working with text, multimedia and semistructured information.
8. Information preservation methods and digital archives.
9. Interoperability and integration of information.
10. Scientometrics in digital libraries.
11. Information security.
12. User interfaces, human factors.
13. Digital libraries in science, education, culture, medicine and economics.
14. Technology standards of digital libraries.
