Joint Conference on Digital Libraries (JCDL 2009)
June 15-19, 2009
	
Austin, TX, USA
<www.jcdl2009.org>

Sponsored by ACM SIGIR, ACM SIGWEB, and IEEE-CS TCDL

Extended Call for Papers
===============================================================

The ACM/IEEE-CS Joint Conference on Digital Libraries (JCDL) is
the major international research forum focused 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 manner of digital content;
new means of selecting, collecting, organizing, distributing, and
evaluating digital content; and theoretical models of information
media, including document genres and electronic publishing. Digital
libraries are distinguished from information retrieval systems
because they include more types of media, provide additional
functionality and services, and include other stages of the
information life cycle, from creation through use. Digital libraries
also can 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 array of disciplines including computer science,
information science, librarianship, archival science and practice,
museum studies and practice, technology, medicine, social sciences,
and humanities.

Topics of the sessions and workshops will cover such aspects of
digital libraries as infrastructure; institutions; metadata; content;
services; digital preservation; system design; implementation;
interface design; human-computer interaction; evaluation of performance;
evaluation of usability; collection development; intellectual property;
privacy; electronic publishing; document genres; multimedia; social,
institutional, and policy issues; user communities; and associated
theoretical topics.

JCDL 2009 will be held in Austin, Texas on the campus of the University
of Texas. The program is organized by an international committee of
scholars and leaders in the Digital Libraries field.  Four hundred
attendees are expected for the five days of events including a day of
cutting edge tutorials; 2 1/2 days of papers, panels, and keynotes; and
1 1/2 days of research workshops.

JCDL 2009 invites submissions of papers and proposals for posters,
demonstrations, tutorials, and workshops that will make the conference
an exciting and creative event to attend. As always, the conference
welcomes contributions from all the fields that intersect to enable
Digital Libraries. Topics include, but are not limited to:

* Interfaces to information for novices and experts
* Information visualization
* Retrieval and browsing
* Data mining/extraction
* Enterprise-scale Information Architectures
* Distributed information systems
* Studies of information behavior and needs; user modeling
* Insightful analyses of existing systems
* Novel library content and use environments
* Deployment of digital collections in education
* Digital Library curriculum development
* Systems and algorithms for preservation
	        	
Paper Submissions
=================
Paper authors may choose between two formats: Full papers and short
papers. Both formats will be included in the proceedings and will be
presented at the conference. Both formats will be rigorously peer
reviewed. Complete papers are required--abstracts and incomplete papers
will not be reviewed.

Full papers report on mature work, or efforts that have reached an
important milestone. Short papers will highlight efforts that might be
in an early stage, but are important for the community to be made aware
of. Short papers can also present theories or systems that can be
described concisely in the limited space.

Full papers must not exceed 10 pages. Short papers are limited to at
most 4 pages. All papers must be original contributions. The material
must therefore not have been previously published or be under review
for publication elsewhere. All contributions must be written in English
and must follow the conference's formatting guidelines.  Papers are to
be submitted at the conference's Web site.

All accepted papers will be published by ACM as conference proceedings
and electronic versions will be included in both the ACM and IEEE Digital
 Libraries.

Poster and Demonstration Submissions
==================================== Posters permit presentation of
late-breaking results in an informal, interactive manner. Poster proposals
should consist of a title, 1-page extended abstract, and contact
information for the authors.  Proposals must follow the conference's
formatting guidelines and are to be submitted at the conference Web site.
 Accepted posters will be displayed at the conference and may include
additional materials, space permitting. Abstracts of posters will appear
in the proceedings.

Demonstrations showcase innovative digital libraries technology and
applications, allowing you to share your work directly with your colleagues
in a high-visibility setting. Demonstration proposals should consist of a
title, 1-page extended abstract, and contact information for the authors.
Proposals must follow the conference's formatting guidelines and are to be
submitted at the conference Web site.  Abstracts of demonstrations will
appear in the proceedings.

Panels and Invited Briefings
============================
Panels will complement the refereed portions of the program with lively
discussions of controversial and cutting-edge issues that are not addressed
by other program elements.  Invited briefings will explain a topic of interest
to those building digital libraries--they can be thought of as being mini-
tutorials.  We are not soliciting formal proposals for panels or invited
briefings, but if you have an idea for one that you'd like to hear, please
send email directly to the panels/briefings chair.

Tutorial Submissions
====================
Tutorials provide an opportunity to offer in-depth education on a topic
or solution relevant to research or practice in digital libraries. They
should address a single topic in detail over either a half-day or a full
day. They are not intended to be venues for commercial product training.
Experts who are interested in engaging members of the community who may
not be familiar with a relevant set of technologies or concepts should plan
their tutorials to cover the topic or solution to a level that attendees
will have sufficient knowledge to follow and further pursue the material
beyond the tutorial. Leaders of tutorial sessions will be expected to take
an active role in publicizing and recruiting attendees for their sessions.

Tutorial proposals should include: a tutorial title; an abstract (1-2
paragraphs, to be used in conference programs); a description or topical
outline of tutorial (1-2 paragraphs, to be used for evaluation); duration
(half- or full-day); expected number of participants; target audience,
including level of experience (introductory, intermediate, advanced); learning
objectives; a brief biographical sketch of the presenter(s); and contact
information for the presenter(s).

Tutorial proposals are to be submitted in electronic form via the
conference's Web site.

Workshop Submissions
====================
Workshops are intended to draw together communities of interest--both those
in established communities and also those interested in discussion and
exploration of a new or emerging issue.  They can range in format from formal,
perhaps centering on presentation of refereed papers, to informal, perhaps
centering on an extended roundtable discussions among the selected participants.

Submissions should include: a workshop title and short description; a
statement of objectives for the workshop; a topical outline for the workshop;
identification of the expected audience and expected number of attendees; a
description of the planned format and duration (half-day, full-day, or one
and a half day); information about how the attendees will be identified,
notified of the workshop, and, if necessary, selected from among applicants;
as well as contact and biographical information about the organizers. Finally,
if a workshop has been held previously, information about the earlier sessions
should be provided -- dates, locations, outcomes, attendance, etc.

Proposals for workshops will be accepted and evaluated on an on-going basis
until the deadline.  This is in order to allow the workshop organizers as much
time as possible to carry out their own program events on acceptance of the
proposal.  Workshop proposals are to be submitted at the conference's Web site.

Doctoral Consortium
===================
The Doctoral Consortium is a workshop for Ph.D. students from all over the
world who are in the early phases of their dissertation work (i.e., the
consortium is not intended for those who are finished or nearly finished with
their dissertation). The goal of the Doctoral Consortium is to help students
with their thesis and research plans by providing feedback and general advice
on using the research environment in a constructive and international atmosphere.

Students interested in participating in the Doctoral Consortium should submit
an extended abstract describing their Digital Library research. Submissions
relating to any aspect of Digital Library research, development, and evaluation
are welcomed, including: technical advances, usage and impact studies, policy
analyses, social and institutional implications, theoretical contributions,
interaction and design advances, and innovative applications in the sciences,
 humanities, and education.

Consult the conference's Web site for more details and to make a submission.
Important notes for all Submissions
===================================
All contributions are to be submitted in electronic form via the JCDL 2009
submission Web page, following ACM format guidelines and using the ACM
template. Please submit all papers in PDF format.

During the submission process you will be asked to identify conflicts of
interest with any of the program committee members. A conflict of interest
 exists, for example, when any of a submitted paper's authors and a committee
member:

* hold employment at the same institution or company
* are candidates for employment at the same institution or company
* co-authored a book or paper in the last 48 months
* are co-principal investigators on a grant or research project
* are actively working on a project together
* are in a family or close personal relationship
* are in a graduate advisee/advisor relationship
* hold personal animosity
