ICADL 2017: The 19th International Conference on Asia-Pacific Digital Libraries
Bangkok, Thailand, November 13-15, 2017
|Submission deadline||June 20, 2017|
While the number of digital collections have been increased constantly and in diverse practices, there are some concerns regarding the relevancy and value of the efforts to expand, enhance, and sustain these collections to society at large. These concerns call for discussions and exemplifications of how research efforts and practices on digital libraries improve the quality of human life in all dimensions, such as education, business, socialization, public administration, culture, and humanities. In addition, these questions initiate quest to discover novel methodologies of producing, managing, analyzing, and storing digital collections as well as deliver state-of-the-art services in a complex, connected, and ever-changing environment that matter to our daily lives. Therefore, the theme of ICADL 2017 is “Data, Information, and Knowledge for Digital Lives” which is open to all opportunities that illustrate how digital libraries, digital collections, and corresponding methods would lead to better lives.
The 19th International Conference on Asia-Pacific Digital Libraries (ICADL 2017) will be co-located with The 8th Asia-Pacific Conference on Library & Information Education and Practice (A-LIEP) Conference at Chulalongkorn University, Bangkok, Thailand under a collective title “International Forum on Data, Information, and Knowledge for Digital Lives”. Hosting these conferences together in a heart of Bangkok would bring a diverse group of academic and professional community members from all parts of the world to exchange their cutting-edge knowledge, experience and practices in various relevant issues in digital libraries, and other related fields.
