AIMS

The field of digital libraries has undergone dramatic changes as digital 
collections grow in scale and diversity. These changes call for novel 
analytical tools and methodologies for making sense of large amounts of 
heterogeneous data, for deriving diverse kinds of knowledge, and for linking 
across different collections and research disciplines. Thus the theme of the 
2017 conference is #TOScale #TOAnalyze #TODiscover. Digital libraries must 
improve outreach efforts, engage diverse communities, and provide scholars and 
users with effective and flexible access to materials which will in turn 
empower them to make new observations and discoveries. This year, we 
particularly invite papers, panels, workshops, and tutorials that present new 
discovery methods for diverse kinds of collections and datasets (e.g., 
documents, images, sounds, videos), that apply recent technologies in related 
fields like machine learning and data mining, and that report on innovative 
digital library applications that engage diverse communities, facilitate user 
access, and enable discovery and exploration in all domains including science, 
art, and the humanities.



This year, in addition to the research-oriented program, we are organizing a 
practitioners’ day so experts and practitioners can share their experiences and 
report on major projects. Practitioner contributions will take the form of 
posters and demos.

Participation is sought from all parts of the world and from the full range of 
established and emerging disciplines and professions including computer 
science, information science, web science, data science, digital humanities, 
librarianship, data management, archival science and practice, museum studies 
and practice, information technology, medicine, social sciences, education and 
the humanities. Representatives from academe, government, industry, and others 
are invited to participate.



TOPICS

JCDL welcomes submissions from researchers and practitioners interested in all 
aspects of digital libraries such as: collection discovery and development, 
hybrid physical/digital collections; knowledge discovery; applications of 
machine learning and AI; services; digital preservation; system design; 
scientific data management; infrastructure and service design; implementation; 
interface design; human-computer interaction; performance evaluation; user 
research; crowdsourcing and human computation; intellectual property; privacy; 
electronic publishing; document genres; multimedia; user communities; and 
associated theoretical topics. Submissions that resonate with JCDL 2017 theme 
are especially welcome, although we will give equal consideration to all topics 
in digital libraries.



SUBMISSIONS

Full papers report on mature work, or efforts that have reached an important 
milestone, and must not exceed 10 pages. Accepted full papers will typically be 
presented in 20 minutes with 10 minutes for questions and discussion.

Short papers may highlight preliminary results to bring them to the community’s 
attention. They may also present theories or systems that can be described 
concisely in the limited space. Short papers must not exceed 4 pages in the 
conference format. Accepted short papers will typically be presented in 10 
minutes with 5 minutes for questions and discussion.

Posters permit presentation of late-breaking results in an informal, 
interactive manner. Demonstrations showcase innovative digital library 
technologies and applications, allowing you to share your work directly with 
your colleagues in a high-visibility setting. Proposals for posters or 
demonstrations should consist of a title, extended abstract, and contact 
information for the authors, and should not exceed 2 pages in the conference 
format. Accepted posters and demonstrations will be displayed at the conference.

All paper submissions (full/short papers, posters and demos) should use the ACM 
Proceedings template and are to be submitted in electronic format via the 
conference's EasyChair submission page [forthcoming-see website for link 
http://2017.jcdl.org/call-for-papers]. All accepted papers will be published by 
the ACM as conference proceedings and electronic versions will be included in 
both the ACM and IEEE digital libraries.
