The 22nd International Conference on Asia-Pacific Digital Libraries (ICADL
           November 30 – December 1, 2020 (online conference)

Organized by Kyoto University, University of Tsukuba and ICADL Steering
In collaboration with Asia-Pacific Chapter of iSchools


International Conference on Asia-Pacific Digital Libraries (ICADL), which
started in Hong Kong in 1998 and over the years traveled many countries in
the Asia-Pacific region, is known as a major digital library conference and
is also ranked as “Core A” conference. Along with JCDL and TPDL, ICADL is
held annually as one of the three top venues for connecting digital
library, computer science and library and information science communities.
This year ICADL will be held online from November 30 to December 1, 2020
and according to Japan time zone. ICADL conference will also collaborate
with Asia-Pacific Chapter of iSchools (AP-iSchools) in this year.
Many emerging research areas such as Digital Humanities, Open Sciences,
Social Informatics originated from digital library research over the past
decades, and it is essential that ICADL continues as a platform for
scholars to connect and develop in these emerging as well as extant areas.
ICADL 2020 is planned as a forum for researchers to exchange ideas and
discuss together across domains for innovative digital information
environment especially during a time of pandemic, upheavals in work,
culture, health services and so on. An important feature of ICADL is the
diversity of the Asia-Pacific region in many aspects – languages, cultures,
social systems, development levels and technologies. This diversity will
bring new ideas and thoughts to the participants.
This year the conference will be held online same as many other related
events due to COVID-19 pandemics. Presentations will be then performed
online as well as they will be also recorded and disseminated later for
open access by the community. There will be no attendance fee, and only
prior registration of the attendees’ and presenters’ information is
required. The conference is free for anyone to attend!
Proceedings of ICADL 2020 will be published by Springer as an LNCS volume,
which is indexed by Scopus. In this year we invite three kinds of
submissions: full research papers, short research papers and practitioners
papers. Note that there will be no demo or poster submissions for this
year. We encourage the potential authors who planned to submit posters or
demos to consider extending their submissions to a short paper format that
has length up to 6 pages.

This year conference theme is "Digital Libraries at Times of Massive
Societal Transition – Collaborating and Connecting Community during Global
Change –".

Every paper will be evaluated by at least 3 members of Program Committee.
The assessment of practitioners paper submissions will put less emphasis on
the novelty and more  on real world practices and applications of DL
technologies in institutions or companies.
Full and short research papers as well as practitioners papers will be
allocated sufficient time in the conference program for oral presentations
using a presentation platform to be chosen later (e.g., ZOOM). Each
accepted paper must be presented online by at least one of the co-authors.
Additionally, the online presentations without QA parts will be recorded
and made later available online.
