The International Conference on Asian Digital Libraries (ICADL) is one of
the leading international conferences in digital libraries research. ICADL
2007 will provide a forum for sharing ideas, research results and
experiences in digital libraries, related technologies and associated
practical and social issues. Participants from diverse backgrounds are
encouraged. Previous conferences have included practitioners, researchers,
educators and policy makers from a variety of disciplines such as computer
science/information technology, library and information sciences, archival
and museum studies, knowledge management, and many areas in the social
sciences and humanities.

Into its tenth year, the theme of ICADL 2007 will be "Asian Digital
libraries: Looking Back 10 Years and Forging New Frontiers". In line with
this theme, we are soliciting papers that examine the history and
development of digital libraries, especially projects in the Asian region,
as well as papers that discuss future developments and cutting-edge
technologies in digital libraries. Submissions focusing on other digital
library areas are also welcome and may include research, system, evaluation,
policy and position papers. Topics include but are not limited to:

* digital library infrastructure and architecture
* information retrieval, filtering and extraction
* data/text/Web mining
* text summarization
* multilingual information processing
* interoperability issues
* open source tools and frameworks for digital libraries
* mobile services
* human-computer interaction
* user interfaces and visualization
* user communities
* social media/Web 2.0 technologies
* metadata and cataloging
* taxonomy, ontology and the semantic Web
* digital preservation
* digital archives and museums
* knowledge management
* social, institutional, and policy issues
* e-government
* use and impact
* security and privacy
* intellectual property
* pedagogical issues
* case studies
* innovative applications
* future trends


In addition, ICADL 2007 has partnered with the Conference of European
National Librarians (CENL) and The European Library (TEL) to organize a
special track on European digital libraries initiatives. We welcome papers
that discuss experiences and projects that promote collaboration between
Europe and Asia. Specific topics include those listed above as well as
strategic, political and interoperability issues in language and standards.

When submitting papers to this special track, please specify "Special track:
European DL initiatives" in the topic list of the paper submission system in
addition to the other relevant topics.


Both full papers and short papers will be accepted. Papers must be in
English with a limit of 10 pages for full papers and 4 pages for short
papers. Electronic submission will be used and the accepted file format is
Adobe Acrobat PDF.

All papers must be original contributions and not previously published nor
currently under consideration for publication elsewhere. Conference
proceedings will be published as part of Springer Verlag's Lecture Notes in
Computer Science (LNCS) series. Submissions must therefore conform to the
