11th Italian Research Conference on Digital Libraries - IRCDL 2015

Bolzano, Italy, 29-30 January, 2015

The 2015 edition of the 11th Italian Research Conference on Digital
Libraries (IRCDL 2015) is committed to preserve the traditional
emphasis on the multidisciplinary nature of the research on digital
libraries, which has been characterizing the conference over the
years. This multidisciplinary nature ranges from computer science to
humanities in the broader sense, including research areas such as
archival and library information sciences, information management
systems, semantic technologies, information retrieval, and new
knowledge environments.  This is a continued challenge for the DL
field and there is the need to continue to contribute to improve the
cooperation between the many communities that share common objectives.

Another focus of IRCDL 2015 will be on the deep changes affecting the
world of scientific communication, where new non linear but
object-centric products are progressively taking shape, and on the
growing role of the integration, publication, and preservation of
research data.


Topics include but are not limited to:
- Formal and methodological foundations of digital libraries
- Digital libraries architectures and infrastructures
- System interoperability and data integration
- Data integration between galleries, libraries, archives, and museums (GLAM)
- Ontologies and linked data for digital libraries
- Metadata creation, management, and curation
- User interfaces and visualisation
- Information access, usability, and personalization
- Long-term preservation
- Collaborative and adaptive environments
- Social networking and networked information
- Quality and evaluation of digital libraries
- Education and learning
- Evaluation of research quality and impact (including novel metrics)
- Exploitation of digital cultural heritage collections
- Semantic publishing and digital libraries
- Linking data to publications
- New models for scholarly publishing
- Research data management, preservation and dissemination
- New models and applications for digital exhibitions


Research papers, describing original ideas on those topics and on
other fundamental aspects of digital libraries and technology, are
solicited. Moreover, short papers on early research results, demos,
and projects are also welcome. Research papers presenting original
works should not exceed 12 pages, whereas short papers on early
research results should not exceed 6 pages, and papers presenting
demos or projects should not exceed 4 pages.

Papers should be submitted electronically as a PDF file at:

Submissions must be formatted according to the authors instructions
for Springer-Verlag LNCS Proceedings
<http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html>.  Accepted papers in
PDF format will be published in on-line proceedings (max 12 pages) at
the time of the conference and presented at the conference. After the
conference some selected authors will be invited to submit a revised
version of their paper for a possible inclusion in the
post-proceedings volume. The revised version of each paper must take
into account the suggestions and the comments received during the
discussion at the conference; the revised versions are going to be
reviewed by at least two reviewers.
