Since its beginnings in Hong Kong in 1998, ICADLhas become a premiere international conference for digital library research. ICADL 2016 in Tsukuba offers a valuable opportunity for researchers, educators, and practitioners to share their experiences and innovative developments.
The main theme of ICADL 2016 is "Knowledge, Information and Data in Open Access Society." We solicit not only high-quality, original research papers, but also practitioner papers identifying research problems and future directions.
Following the previous ICADLs, ICADL 2016 proceedings will be published in the LNCS series of Springer.
All papers must be original contributions and not previously published nor currently under consideration for publication elsewhere. Papers must be written in English. Submissions should be made through EasyChair. All submissions should conform to LNCS format. All accepted technical papers will be published in the conference proceedings as part of Springer Verlag's Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series.
All accepted papers have to be presented at oral or poster sessions by the author(s)
