13th Italian Research Conference on Digital Libraries - IRCDL 2017

Modena, Italy, 26-27 January, 2017

Since 2005, the Italian Research Conference on Digital Libraries 
has served as an important national forum focused on digital 
libraries and associated technical, practical, and social issues. 
IRCDL encompasses the many meanings of the term "digital libraries",
including new forms of information institutions; 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 as an extension of the services libraries 
currently provide.

Representatives from academe, government, industry, and others are 
invited to participate in this annual conference. The conference draws 
from a broad and multidisciplinary array of research areas including 
computer science, information science, librarianship, archival science 
and practice, museum studies and practice, technology, social sciences, 
and humanities.


Topics include but are not limited to:
- Multimedia digital libraries
- Formal and methodological foundations of digital libraries
- Digital libraries architectures and infrastructures
- Algorithms and techniques for automatic content analysis
- System interoperability and data integration
- Data integration between galleries, libraries, archives, and museums (GLAM)
- Ontologies and linked data for digital libraries
- Metadata creation, management, and curation
- User interfaces and visualization
- Information access, usability, and personalization
- Long-term preservation
- Collaborative and adaptive environments
- Social networking and networked information
