Enter your description here. Maybe just paste in the call for papers.


So, the list of topics includes, but it is not restricted to, applications and challenges in:

Information Retrieval Digital Libraries for Digital Humanities Research Data Management Data Repositories and Archives Standards and Interoperability Digital Preservation and Curation Data and Information Lifecycle (creation, store, share and reuse) Linked Data and Open Data Scholarly Communication Cultural Heritage Data and Metadata Quality Digital Service Infrastructures (eg. Europeana) Research Infrastructures (EOSC, DARIAH, CESSDA, ELIXIR, EUDAT, etc.) User Participation (crowdsourced data, user involvement in cultural heritage, citizen science) Legal Issues on Open Knowledge (e.g. intellectual property, licensing, privacy) Extreme or emerging new challenges and opportunities: big data, Very Large Digital Libraries; blockchain (data provenance, authorship, digital property, etc.)


TPDL 2018 looks for original research and practical work around these or related topics, to be presented and discussed at the conference. Proposals for the following categories are welcome:

Full papers (12 pages, LNCS format) Short papers (6 pages, LNCS format) Posters and Demos (4 pages, LNCS format) Panels (1 page, short informal description) Tutorials and Hands-on sessions (1 page, short informal description) Workshops (1-3 pages, informal description) Accepted papers have an allocated time in the conference program, posters have a 1-minute madness plus a presentation board and demos have a stand to be presented during the Posters and Demos specific slot in TPDL2018. A Best Paper award is designated by the Program Committee, and the Best Poster is voted by the conference participants.

The proceedings will be published by Springer-Verlag in Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS, ISSN 0302-9743). Submissions must follow the LNCS guidelines.

All paper, poster and demo submissions are written in English and submitted as a PDF file in LNCS format via the conference’s submission page:

According to the registration regulation for TPDL2018, inclusion of papers in the proceedings is conditional upon registration of at least one author per paper.

Submissions of proposals for workshops, panels, tutorials and hands-on sessions are directed to the conference contact:

Workshop organisers are provided with logistic support by the conference organisation, and are expected to independently manage all aspects of the workshop program, including calls, invitations and any special requirements.

A selection of the accepted papers will be invited for publication in a special issue of a journal. Authors of these papers are invited to submit an extended version (at least 30% new material) of the papers, providing more depth and detail on their technical approaches and results. These new submissions undergo a separate review process, according to the requirements of the journal.
