[InetBib] CFP: 24th International Conference on Theory and Practice of Digital Libraries (TPDL)

Dear List-Members,

Please note this Call for Papers

TPDL 2020
24th International Conference on Theory and Practice of Digital Libraries
Lyon, France, 25-28 August 2020.


TPDL 2020 will be co-located with 
- 24th European Conference on Advances in Databases and Information Systems
- 16th EDA days on Business Intelligence & Big Data

Digital libraries and repositories store, manage, represent and disseminate 
rich and heterogeneous data that are often of enormous cultural, scientific, 
educational, artistic, and social value. Serving as digital ecosystems for 
empowering researchers and practitioners they provide unparalleled 
opportunities for novel knowledge extraction and discovery. New applications 
rise novel challenges that can only be addressed in an interdisciplinary 
community of researchers and practioners from various disciplines such as 
Digital Humanities, Information Sciences and others. TPDL 2020 attempts to 
facilitate establishing connections and convergences between these communities 
that could benefit from (and contribute to) the ecosystems offered by digital 
libraries and repositories. To become especially useful to the diverse research 
and practitioner communities, digital libraries need to consider special needs 
and requirements for effective data utilization, management and exploitation.

Following the previous TPDL editions, TPDL 2020 invites submissions for 
scientific and research work in the following categories: Full Papers, Short 
Papers, Posters and Demonstrations, Workshops and Tutorials, Panels and

and demos have a slot in a one-minute madness session plus a presentation

their work by providing depth and detail on their technical approaches and
