Joint Conference on Digital Libraries (JCDL 2009)
June 15-19, 2009

Austin, TX, USA


Extended Call for Papers

The ACM/IEEE-CS Joint Conference on Digital Libraries (JCDL) is the major international research forum focused on digital libraries and associated technical, practical, and social issues. JCDL encompasses the many meanings of the term “digital libraries”, including (but not limited to) new forms of information institutions; operational information systems with all manner of digital content; new means of selecting, collecting, organizing, distributing, and evaluating digital content; and theoretical models of information media, including document genres and electronic publishing. Digital libraries are distinguished from information retrieval systems because they include more types of media, provide additional functionality and services, and include other stages of the information life cycle, from creation through use. Digital libraries also can be viewed as a new form of information institution or as an extension of the services libraries currently provide.

Representatives from academe, government, industry, and others are invited to participate in this annual conference. The conference draws from a broad array of disciplines including computer science, information science, librarianship, archival science and practice, museum studies and practice, technology, medicine, social sciences, and humanities.

Topics of the sessions and workshops will cover such aspects of digital libraries as infrastructure; institutions; metadata; content; services; digital preservation; system design; implementation; interface design; human-computer interaction; evaluation of performance; evaluation of usability; collection development; intellectual property; privacy; electronic publishing; document genres; multimedia; social, institutional, and policy issues; user communities; and associated theoretical topics.

JCDL 2009 will be held in Austin, Texas on the campus of the University of Texas. The program is organized by an international committee of scholars and leaders in the Digital Libraries field.  Four hundred attendees are expected for the five days of events including a day of cutting edge tutorials; 2 1/2 days of papers, panels, and keynotes; and 1 1/2 days of research workshops.

JCDL 2009 invites submissions of papers and proposals for posters, demonstrations, tutorials, and workshops that will make the conference an exciting and creative event to attend. As always, the conference welcomes contributions from all the fields that intersect to enable Digital Libraries. Topics include, but are not limited to:

* Interfaces to information for novices and experts
* Information visualization
* Retrieval and browsing
* Data mining/extraction
* Enterprise-scale Information Architectures
* Distributed information systems
