1st International Workshop on Temporal Dynamics in Digital Libraries (TDDL2017)

at 21st International Conference on Theory and Practice of Digital Libraries (TPDL2017)
Thessaloniki, Greece, September 18-21, 2017



Paper submission deadline: June 2, 2017 (11:59pm Hawaii time)
Notification of paper acceptance: July 14, 2017
Camera-ready version deadline: July 28, 2017
Workshop (at TPDL 2017): September 21, 2017


In Digital Libraries, which can often span several epochs, time is a critical factor. It is the means by which understanding, searching, and exploring these collections of data.
Temporal dynamics, i.e. time-based patterns and trends, underpin language usage, entity references, and cultural and economic trends. Users accessing the information contained in Digital Libraries have to deal with their partial knowledge of these phenomena (word meaning variation, entity temporal ambiguity, specific events and time-related trends), as well as their own temporal evolution, i.e. their change in interests, preferences, and goals over time. Intercepting, representing, and predicting these dynamics is fundamental to the intelligent information access in Digital Libraries.
This workshop proposes to bring together researchers and practitioners from different backgrounds in order to identify and discuss research trends, challenges, and new opportunities related to the time-aware intelligent access to Digital Libraries.

We invite papers that pertain to the workshop theme including but not limited to:
- Diachronic analysis of language
- Time-aware Information Retrieval for Digital Libraries
- Time-aware Recommender Systems for Digital Libraries
- Timeline Summarization
- Time-aware User Modeling for Digital Libraries
- Event detection
- Time-aware entity disambiguation
- Topic detection and tracking
- Temporal clustering
- Timeline interfaces
- Temporal queries
- Historical studies and computational history
- Topic and entity evolution
- Opinion changes over time
- Web archive-related topics

Position and Short papers: 4 pages
Demos: 4 pages
Long papers: 12 pages

We encourage submissions that describe new theoretical models, applied techniques, and research in progress. Submissions should not have been published or submitted for publication elsewhere and should be prepared according to the main conference format (Springer-Verlag Lecture Notes in Computer Science). All submissions should be written in English and submitted as PDF. Submissions will be peer reviewed (single-blind) by the program committee members. Evaluation criteria will include novelty, significance for theory/practice, technical soundness, and quality of presentation. All the submissions should be submitted via EasyChair:
At least one author of an accepted paper must attend the workshop to present the work.
The accepted papers will be published in the workshop proceedings via CEUR Workshop Proceedings. We will also consider editing a special issue on the International Journal on Digital Libraries after the workshop by encouraging the participants to extend their papers.
