TPDL 2013 - Call for Doctoral Consortium
17th International Conference on Theory and Practice of Digital
22-26 September 2013
Registration webpage: http://www.easyconferences.org/tpdl2013/register
* Introduction *
Tradition and service to the community are important cornerstones of
the scientific environment. As such, we are glad to invite submissions
to the TPDL 2013 Doctoral Consortium. The TPDL Doctoral Consortium
follows an important tradition of events aimed at providing, to the next
generation of young, talented Digital Library researchers, a friendly
and lively atmosphere for presenting their research ideas, exchange
experiences with peers, and receive constructive feedback on their work
from the international research community.
Some of the goals of the TPDL Doctoral Consortium include:
- help doctoral candidates formulate research questions and organize
- help forge new relationships and collaborations within the
International Digital Library community, promoting collaborative
- support a new generation of researchers with information and advice
on academic, research, industrial, and non-traditional career paths.
* Submissions *
Submissions, in the format of extended abstracts of up to ten (10)
pages, must focus on digital libraries related issues, and should
summarize work at a stage of progress in which feedback from the
international community might be of value. It is expected that students
who submit extended abstracts have already finished the first part of
their research (one-two years of their studies), but still are in the
middle of their research work.
A panel of prominent researchers participating in the TPDL Program
Committee will conduct the workshop. They will review all the
submissions and comment on the content of the work as well as on the
presentation. Students will have 20 minutes to present their research,
focusing on the main theme of their thesis, what they have achieved so
far, and how they plan to continue their work. The following 20 minutes
are reserved for discussion and feedback from the panel of reviewers.
The Doctoral Consortium will take place on a single full day. Up to 12
students will have the opportunity to participate.
Submissions should be related to one or more of the conference themes
as stated in the Call for Research Papers. Moreover, they should be
presented in a way that demonstrates the link to the chosen conference
theme(s), and they should contain:
- a clear formulation of the research topic and research hypotheses;
- an outline of the significant problems in the field and their current
- a description of the proposed approach and its expected
- a discussion of preliminary results; and
- an evaluation (-plan) of the research.
All papers must be written in English and follow Springer's LNCS
guidelines. Please send your submission directly by email to the
Doctoral Consortium chairs Marcos Gonçalves (mgoncalv at dcc.ufmg.br) or
Stefan Gradmann (stefan.gradmann at ibi.hu-berlin.de) with Subject "TPDL
2013 Doctoral Consortium Submission".
Revised versions of the presented extended abstracts will be published
after the conference in a special issue of the TCDL Bulletin, the
publication of the IEEE-CS Technical Committee on Digital Libraries
