Call for Contributions
17th International Conference on Theory and Practice of Digital Libraries
Valletta, Malta, September 22-26, 2013

The International Conference on Theory and Practice of Digital
Libraries (TPDL) constitutes a leading scientific forum on digital
libraries that brings together researchers, developers, content
providers and users in the field of digital libraries. TPDL 2013 will
be organized by University of Malta and it will be held in Valletta,
Malta on September 22-26, 2013.

* Aims and scope *
Valuable and rapidly increasing volumes of data are produced or
transformed into digital form by all fields of scientific,
educational, cultural, business and governmental activities. For this
purpose the digital libraries community has developed long-term and
interdisciplinary research agendas, providing significant results,
such as conceptual models, added value infrastructures, software
tools, standards and services.

The advent of the technologies that enhance the exchange of
information with rich semantics is the epicenter of the discussions of
the community. Information providers inter-link their metadata with
user contributed data and offer new services outlooking to the
development of a web of data and addressing the interoperability and
long-term preservation challenges.

TPDL 2013 under the general theme "Sharing meaningful information",
invites submissions for the proliferation of scientific and research
osmosis in the following categories: Full Papers, Short Papers,
Posters and Demonstrations, Workshops and Tutorials, Panels and
Doctoral Consortium. All submissions will be reviewed on the basis of
relevance, originality, importance and clarity in a triple peer review
process. The TPDL 2013 proceedings will be published by
Springer-Verlag in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series

        Subject: Museums on the Web 30 November

Dear Humanists,

having had such an encouraging response to the Call for Papers I sent
to this list I thought some of you might be interested in the
resulting conference:

The Museums Computer Group's annual Museums on the Web conference –
UKMW12 – will be held at the Wellcome Collection in London on 30
November 2012.

UKMW12 is about being ‘strategically digital’. Responding to the
issues currently faced by museums and heritage organisations, it's an
opportunity to take a step back from the everyday and think
strategically about the impact of the digital revolution on your
museum and on the sector as a whole, including themes such as:
digitally enabling the modern museum and its staff; sustaining the
digital agenda and the realities of digital strategies and
organisational change; and the complexities of digital engagement and
the impact of social media on audience expectations.

UKMW12 brings together speakers from organisations including the Tate,
the V&A, UCL, King's College, the Guardian, Strategic Content
Alliance, Collections Trust and Caper.

As always, UK Museums on the Web is a day for being inspired by the
latest ideas, for learning from case studies grounded in reality, and
for networking with other technologists, curators, managers,
academics, learning and marketing specialists in the museum and
heritage sector.

Don't miss out!  Book your ticket now at http://ukmw12.eventbrite.co.uk
