About the ICADL Conference

The International Conference on Asia-Pacific Digital Libraries (ICADL) series is a significant forum for digital libraries research, providing an opportunity for researchers, educators, and practitioners to share their experiences. Since its first meeting in Hong Kong (ICADL 1998) the ICADL has rotated annually among the Asia-Pacific countries, and evolved to become one of the premiere conferences in digital libraries.


The emergence of social media and the availability of social networking platforms offer enormous opportunity to leverage them for “connecting with the user community” and building a strong networked community of stakeholders across the life cycle of information creation to consumption. The ICADL 2013 will focus on the tools, methods, processes and case studies of “Social Media and Community networks’ that advance the field of digital libraries. We solicit papers on the theme of Social Media and Community Networks for potential publication in ICADL 2013. Areas of interest include, but are not restricted to, the following:

- Community-based web or online services
- Social architectures for digital libraries
- Electronic publishing
- Community informatics
- Human factors in digital libraries
- Cognitive modelling of social media and communities
- Community information retrieval and browsing
- Social network analysis
- Data mining in communities and social media
- Information integration across communities
- Interoperability of multi-community information
- Metadata and cataloguing in community repositories
- Mobile services over social media
- Social media analytics
- Cross-cultural and cross-linguistic communities
- Novel digital content for social environments
- Technologies for social media and community networks
- Personalized service and user modelling
- Community networks for scientific data
- Security and privacy in social media and community networks
- Systems, algorithms, and models for data preservation

- Healthcare Informatics

Submission Instructions

Papers submitted to ICADL 2013 should not be under review for any other conference or journal. A paper should be significantly different from previously published work, and should represent original contributions. Duplicate submissions will be rejected. If you have questions about how this policy applies to your work, please feel free to send an email to the General Chair or Program Committee Chairs.

Authors who wish to submit papers to ICADL 2013 should register their paper and submit an abstract as per the deadlines given in the Important Dates section. Papers for which abstracts have not been registered by the due date will be rejected. Authors may choose among three formats: full papers, short papers and posters. Papers in all these formats will be included in the proceedings and will be presented at the conference. All submissions will be rigorously peer-reviewed.

Full papers are expected to report on mature work, or on efforts that have reached an important milestone. They must not exceed 10 pages including references and appendices.

Short papers can highlight efforts that might be in an early stage, but are important for the community to be aware of. They can also present theories or systems that can be described concisely in the limited space. They must not exceed 4 pages in all.

Posters can be used for presentation of late-breaking results in an informal, interactive manner. Poster proposals must not exceed 2 pages.

All contributions must be written in English and must follow Springer's formatting guidelines ( Papers are to be submitted via the ICADL 2013 EasyChair page ( All accepted papers will be published by Springer's Lecture Notes in Computer Science series as conference proceedings.
