Call for Submissions

The TPDL 2019 Doctoral Consortium (TPDL 2019 DC) follows an important tradition that aims at giving next generation researchers a chance to present their work to the digital libraries community. The purpose is to provide to doctoral students a friendly and lively atmosphere for sharing research ideas and experience with peers, and receive constructive feedback from senior researchers and scholars. 

Submissions to TPDL 2019 DC  must be written in English, following the format for short-papers (8 pages in the LNCS format). It is expected that students who send submissions had already completed the preliminary steps of their studies, have the research questions identified and supported by a relevant state of the art overview, and thus feedback will be valuable (intermediate results may already exist, but relevant research issues still must be open for discussion).

A panel of senior scholars and researchers will conduct the workshop session. Students will have a slot to present their research objectives, status and open challenges, which will be followed by an open discussion and feedback from the panel.

All accepted submissions will be invited for publication in a special issue of the Bulletin of the IEEE Technical Committee on Digital Libraries.

Participation at the  TPDL 2019 DC  will be free of costs. Students willing to also participate in he TPDL 2019 conferences will be able to register at any moment at the Early Bird rate (this option will be available even if after the deadline for that; students not able to participate at the TPDL 2019 will no need to register for he conference).
