Call for papers 2nd International Conference on Theory and Practice of Digital Libraries 2012
(Pafos, Cyprus - 23-27 September 2012)
Over the last years, Digital Libraries have taken over a central role in our society. As the volume of digital material grows, and its use becomes more ubiquitous, the challenge of combining our digital futures and digital past becomes more important. Innovative methods, collaborative working and new forms of content challenge established digital library methods. Similarly, the need for increasingly sophisticated means for supporting the analysis of digital content by humanists and scientists, practitioners and academics, leads to new difficulties for the infrastructure and interface of information repositories.
The International Conference on Theory and Practice of Digital Libraries is the successor of the European Conference on Research and Advanced Technology for Digital Libraries (ECDL). TPDL/ECDL has been the leading European scientific forum on digital libraries for 15 years. The conference continues to bring together researchers, developers, content providers and users in the field of digital libraries. TPDL 2012 is organised by the Department of Multimedia and Graphic Arts of the Cyprus University of Technology (CUT) in collaboration with the University of Cyprus and the City University London. It will take place in Pafos, Cyprus on 23-27 September 2012
General Chair: Panayiotis Zaphiris (Cyprus University of Technology) Program Chair: George Buchanan (City University London)
