15th Italian Research Conference on Digital Libraries

Add to watchlist Add to Google Calendar

Location: Pisa, Italy
Begin: January 29, 2019
Keywords: digital libraries, information science, cultural heritage and social sciences, open science and research infrastructures
Submission Deadline: September 7, 2018
Abbreviation: IRCDL 2019

Science is increasingly and rapidly becoming digital. Research is commonly performed using research infrastructure services and tools available online or on desktop computers, and the products and outcome of science are encompassing also datasets, software, and experiments. Being digital, such products can be shared and re-used together with the article, thus enabling comprehensive research assessment and various degrees of reproducibility of science. Positive consequences of this shift towards Open Science are: accelerating science, optimizing cost of research, fraud detection, and fully-fledged scientific reward. In order to meet such requirements, and keep on playing their central role for scientific collaboration, Digital libraries must face new theoretical and technical challenges. With this vision in mind, IRCDL invites representatives from academia, government, industry, research communities, research infrastructures, to submit their ideas from a broad and multidisciplinary array of research areas including computer science, information science, social sciences and cultural heritage.


Submission Guidelines


IRCDL welcomes the following kind of submissions:


Full research papers describing original ideas on the listed topics and on other fundamental aspects of digital libraries and technology. Works should not exceed 12-15 pages in the LNCS template.


Short research papers on early research results, new results on previous published works, demos, and projects are also welcome. Works should not exceed 6-9 pages in the LNCS template.


This year the conference welcomes also Data papers and Software papers, which can be both “full” and “short” as described above:



  • Data papers presenting motivations, methodology, and value behind the creation of datasets; e.g. annotated corpora, benchmark collections, training sets. 

  • Software papers presenting software functionality, application, and value for the community and encourage its re-use to a non-specialist reader.  


More info on the conference Website.    


Articles will go through a single-blind review process. For the article to be included in the proceedings, at least one author of accepted papers is required to attend the conference.
