ETD2016, the 19th International Symposium on Electronic Theses and
Dissertations, will take place from July 11 to July 13, 2016, at Lille. The
conference will be hosted by the University of Lille 3 and co-organized with
the Networked Digital Library of Theses and Dissertations (NDLTD), an
international organization dedicated to promoting the adoption, creation, use,
dissemination, and preservation of electronic theses and dissertations (ETDs).
In 2016, the ETD International Symposium series comes for the first time to
France. The theme of the conference is "Data and Dissertations", with a focus
on the handling of research data produced by PhD students. As the former events
of the series, ETD2016 will again provide delegates the unique opportunity to
learn from each other, discuss new projects and initiatives, share experiences
and good practices from around the world, and provide perspectives for further
research and development. ETD2016 is open for university librarians and other
information professionals interested in ETD and research data, scientists and
scholars in library and information sciences, and LIS students. The conference
language is English.
Proposals for papers and posters are invited on all relevant topics in the
field of electronic theses and dissertations, in particular
Advanced technologies and infrastructures
Second generation ETD programs
Open science, open access, open repositories
Initiatives for better introducing PhD students to new ETD technologies
ETD publishing and embargoes
Other papers and posters on ETDs can deal with text and data mining, research
evaluation (ETDs and CRIS), legal and ethical aspects, semantic enrichment,
special collections, digitization programs and national ETD policies.
The main topic of ETD2016 will be “Data and Dissertations”, with a focus on
initiatives, projects and experiences in the field of research data related to
ETDs. Some questions for papers and posters:
How should such research data be handled?
How do PhD students manage their own datasets?
What should be done to improve their data skills?
And there are many other questions, e.g. legal and ethical issues, formats,
identifiers, storage and long term preservation, workflows, best practices etc.
ETD2016 will be a forum to discuss new developments and infrastructures and to
provide insights and perspectives for further progress, in the global framework
of open data and open science.
We invite participants who want to present a paper or a poster at ETD2016 to
