Short & Accelerating innovation Papers

The International Conference on Theory and Practice of Digital Libraries (TPDL) is a yearly date for researchers on Digital Libraries and related topics. Over the years, TPDL was established as an important international forum focused on digital libraries and associated technical, practical, and social issues. TPDL encompasses the many meanings of the term “digital libraries,” embracing the whole spectrum of the Library, Archives, and Museums (LAM) community; operational information systems with all manner of digital content; new means of selecting, collecting, organizing, and distributing digital content; and theoretical models of information media, including document genres and electronic publishing. Digital libraries may be viewed as a new form of information institution or an extension of libraries' services.

Important dates

Note that all deadlines are 23:59 (11:59 pm) in the AoE (Anywhere on Earth) time zone on the date specified.

Main Conference: September 26–29, 2023

Short and Accelerating Innovation Papers:

  • submission: 12 June 2023
  • notification: 14 July 2023
  • camera-ready for all the submissions: 24 July 2023

Contribution types and submission guidelines

Short and Prototype Papers (up to 6 pages + unlimited references) present high-quality, original research or tools or applications that are of relevance to the TPDL community. Submissions should present more focused or smaller studies, for example, preliminary results, ongoing work, or late-breaking results. Prototypes should ideally include a link to where the tool or application is available. Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings and presented as short conference talks.

Accelerating Innovation Papers (up to 4 pages + 1 page of references) present preliminary results about TPDL 2023 topics of interest. This track aims to speed up the transfer and sharing of new ideas and late-breaking results to accelerate innovation and make it thrive. Therefore, we are eager to receive provocative ideas, early-stage results opening up new perspectives or unveiling the potential for new approaches, project proposals and visions of the future, as part Ph.D./PostDoc projects. Accepted papers will be presented in a gong-show style and with a poster.

All papers must be in the Springer LNCS styleLNCS style

The review process is single-blind, so you can include the author names in the manuscript you submit.
