ICADL, which started in Hong Kong in 1998 and traveled many countries in the Asia-Pacific, is known as a major digital library conference. Along with JCDL and TPDL, ICADL will be held in Malacca, the historic city of Malaysia from November 5 to 7, 2019. Many emerging research areas such as Social Informatics, Digital Humanities, Open Sciences originated from digital library research over the past decades. ICADL 2019 is planned as a forum for researchers to exchange ideas and discuss together across domains for innovative digital information environment for the future. An important feature of ICADL is the diversity of the Asia-Pacific region in many aspects - language, culture, social systems, development levels, etc. This diversity will bring new ideas and thoughts to the participants.

 

ICADL 2019 will be co-located with the 9th Asia-Pacific Conference on Library Information Education and Practice (A-LIEP 2019; http://aliep2019.org/). ICADL and A-LIEP share some common research interests, for example, research data in various domains such as STEM, health information, humanities and social sciences, from different perspectives such as data analytics and research data management. Annual meeting of Asia-Pacific chapter of iSchools (AP-iSchools; https://ischools.org/) will be also co-located with ICADL. ICADL 2019 will provide an excellent international forum to meet people with different backgrounds but common research interests in digital information for the future.

 

Proceedings of ICADL 2019 will be published by Springer as a LNCS, which is indexed by Scopus.

Panel proposals should include corresponding organizer(s), panelists and panel descriptions.

Call for Doctoral Consortium Papers is in preparation.

 

Inclusion of papers in the program proceedings is conditional upon registration of at least one author per paper. Full and short papers will be allocated time in the conference program for oral presentations, while posters/demos will have a slot in a 1-minute madness session plus a board and stand for presentations during a specific Posters/Demos session.

 

Workshop organizers are provided with logistic support by the conference organization, and are expected to independently manage all aspects of the workshop program, including calls, invitations and any special requirements.


A Best Paper and Best Student awards will be designated by the Program Committee.

 

Workshops/Tutorials Proposals

We cordially invite researchers and professionals of the digital library community to submit a proposal for a workshop or tutorial. A workshop is intended to bring together groups interested in well-established or emerging topics, while a tutorial is more instructional, aimed at educating or informing members of the digital library community who are unfamiliar with a relevant set of technologies or concepts.

Workshops are usually more interactive, and proposers are free to decide how to structure and design them. Tutorials offer in-depth education on a well-established or "cutting-edge" topic relevant to research or practice in digital libraries, preferably addressing a specific topic associated with the conference theme. Each workshop/tutorial proposal should be planned as either a half-day or a full day, to a level that attendees will have sufficient knowledge to follow and further pursue the material beyond the tutorial or workshop.

Proposals must detail the subject, scope, program strand and intended content. Acceptance will be based on the merits of the proposal and the requirements for its organization. Each proposal should be no more than 4 pages and include the following information:

  • Workshop/Tutorial title: Give the workshop or tutorial a name, be as precise as possible.
  • Type: Indicate if this is a workshop or a tutorial
  • Presenter(s)/Instructor(s): Indicate the name, professional title, affiliation, contact details and expertise of each speaker (no more than three sentences per speaker).
  • Conference Theme Addressed: Please note how this workshop or tutorial aligns with the Conference theme(s).
  • Description: Provide a detailed description of the workshop/tutorial, including a proposed agenda outline and content to be covered.
  • Format: A description of the planned format and duration (half (3 hours) or full-day (6 hours))
  • Goals/learning objectives:  List 3 of the central goals of the workshop/tutorial (e.g., improve knowledge about the xy domain, show the new technical possibilities for accessing data, search for solutions through discussion and sharing of experiences, roundtable discussion on a topic of interest.)
  • Target audience: Indicate the target audience for the workshop (e.g., librarians, technologists, researchers, audio technicians, documentarists, management, archivists, etc.)
  • Conditions/required knowledge: Indicate knowledge/minimal requirements (if applicable) needed to attend the workshop. Please also indicate any software/hardware that participants are required to bring.

 

The organizers of accepted workshops/tutorials are required to be responsible for publicizing and recruiting attendees for the workshop or tutorial. All proposals are to be submitted via the conference's EasyChair submission page.
