TPDL2017 Call for Papers
International Conference on Theory and Practice of Digital Libraries
18-21 September 2017
Grand Hotel Palace, Thessaloniki, Greece
http://www.tpdl.eu/tpdl2017

The 21st version of the International Conference on Theory and Practice 
of Digital Libraries holds the general theme "Part of the Machine: 
turning complex into scalable" and wants to create a dialogue that will 
address the challenge of creatively transforming these highly 
synthesised environments into solutions that can scale for the benefit 
of varied communities.

Digital libraries are complex systems that respond to the needs of 
multiple communities with escalating requirements. Undoubtedly the 
effect of big data in research and development is immense and their 
collection, aggregation, analysis and interpretation is currently the 
main trend. However, smaller developments are equally interesting in 
giving the example of managing highly structured and organised 
information resources.

In this series of conferences, the dialectic between theory and practice 
is intense, but always aims to produce a state of the art imagery of 
digital libraries, or else networked information systems that affect the 
life of academia, education, culture, society and industry. The 
components of this "machinery" are interconnected and claim the skills 
and knowledge of multidisciplinary researchers.

# Post-conference Journal Publication #
The TPDL2017 Program Committee will also nominate papers they consider 
highlight work of significance in the field. Authors of these papers are 
then invited to submit extended version (at least 30% new material) of 
their papers that expand upon the description of their work by providing 
more depth and detail on their technical approaches and results. These 
submissions then go through the International Journal of Digital 
Libraries (IJDL, ISSN 1432-5012) review process before acceptance in a 
focused issue of the journal.
