Call for Participation - TPDL 2012: 16th European Conference on
Digital Libraries
 (Pafos, Cyprus - 23-27 September 2012)

Over the last years, Digital Libraries have taken over a central role
in our society. As the volume of digital material grows, and its use
becomes more ubiquitous, the challenge of combining our digital
futures and digital past becomes more important. Innovative methods,
collaborative working and new forms of content challenge established
digital library methods. Similarly, the need for increasingly
sophisticated means for supporting the analysis of digital content by
humanists and scientists, practitioners and academics, leads to new
difficulties for the infrastructure and interface of information

The International Conference on Theory and Practice of Digital
Libraries is the successor of the European Conference on Research and
Advanced Technology for Digital Libraries (ECDL). TPDL/ECDL has been
the leading European scientific forum on digital libraries for 15
years. The conference continues to bring together researchers,
developers, content providers and users in the field of digital
libraries. TPDL 2012 is organised by the Department of Multimedia and
Graphic Arts of the Cyprus University of Technology (CUT) in
collaboration with the University of Cyprus and the City University
London. It will take place in Pafos, Cyprus on 23-27 September 2012

General Chair: Panayiotis Zaphiris (Cyprus University of Technology)
Program Chair: George Buchanan (City University London)
               Edie Rasmussen (University of British Columbia)

Our keynote speakers include Cathy Marshall (Microsoft Research),

library sites on mobile phones, through the systematic evaluation of
online library services, to technical fundamentals on indexing and
extracting data from library content. The programme also includes a
variety of tutorials, including digital preservation and building
digital collections, and workshops on topics such as knowledge
organisation and semantic archives.

Whether your interests are in human-computer interaction, information
retrieval or library science, our program will contain much of
interest. This year's conference is located in Paphos, Cyprus. Cyprus
