TPDL 2020
24th International Conference on Theory and Practice of Digital Libraries

Lyon, France, 25-28 August 2020.

TPDL 2020 will be co-located with
- 24th European Conference on Advances in Databases and Information Systems
- 16th EDA days on Business Intelligence & Big Data

Digital libraries and repositories store, manage, represent and disseminate rich and heterogeneous data that are often of enormous cultural, scientific, educational, artistic, and social value. Serving as digital ecosystems for empowering researchers and practitioners they provide unparalleled opportunities for novel knowledge extraction and discovery. New applications rise novel challenges that can only be addressed in an interdisciplinary community of researchers and practioners from various disciplines such as Digital Humanities, Information Sciences and others. TPDL 2020 attempts to facilitate establishing connections and convergences between these communities that could benefit from (and contribute to) the ecosystems offered by digital libraries and repositories. To become especially useful to the diverse research and practitioner communities, digital libraries need to consider special needs and requirements for effective data utilization, management and exploitation.

Following the previous TPDL editions, TPDL 2020 invites submissions for scientific and research work in the following categories: Full Papers, Short Papers, Posters and Demonstrations, Workshops and Tutorials, Panels and Doctoral Consortium submissions.

The proceedings will be published by Springer-Verlag in Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS, ISSN 0302-9743) series.

Paper, poster and demo submissions have to be in English and submitted as a PDF file following the author instructions via the conference’s submission page:

Submissions must not be published or under consideration for publication in a journal or in a conference with proceedings.
Submissions will be evaluated based on originality, significance, technical soundness and clarity.
Inclusion of papers in the program proceedings is conditional upon registration of at least one author per paper.
Full and short papers have an allocated time in the conference program, posters and demos have a slot in a one-minute madness session plus a presentation during a dedicated Posters and Demos session.

A Best Paper award will be designated by the Program Committee, and the Best Poster will be elected by the conference participants.

A selection of the best papers will be invited for publication in International Journal of Digital Libraries (IJDL, Springer, ISSN 1432-5012). Authors considered for the special issue will be required to submit extended versions (at least 30% new material) of their papers that expand upon the description of their work by providing depth and detail on their technical approaches and results. Please note that it is expected that the page length of a regular paper be between 10-30 pages. These submissions would then go through the IJDL review process before acceptance.
