    Special Interest Group on Information Retrieval (ACM SIGIR)

    Technical Committee on Digital Libraries (TCDL)

    The Joint Conference on Digital Libraries is a major international forum
    focusing on digital libraries and associated technical, practical, and
    social issues. JCDL encompasses the many meanings of the term "digital
    libraries", including (but not limited to) new forms of information
    institutions; operational information systems with all types of digital
    content; new means of selecting, collecting, organizing, and distributing
    digital content; digital preservation and archiving; and theoretical models
    of information media, including document genres and electronic publishing.

    The intended community for this conference includes those interested in
    aspects of digital libraries such as infrastructure; institutions; metadata;
    content; services; digital preservation; system design; implementation;
    interface design; human-computer interaction; performance evaluation;
    usability evaluation; collection development; intellectual property;
    privacy; electronic publishing; document genres; multimedia; social,
    institutional, and policy issues; user communities; and associated
    theoretical topics.

    Participation is sought from all parts of the world and from the full range
    of disciplines and professions involved in digital library research and
    practice, including computer science, information science, librarianship,
    archival science and practice, museum studies and practice, technology,
    medicine, social sciences, and humanities. All domains -- academe,
    government, industry, and others -- are encouraged to participate as
    presenters or attendees.
