PREFORMA @ IRCDL 2015 Conference

Share

ircdlSince 2005 the Italian Research Conference on Digital Libraries (IRCDL) provides a great opportunity for Italian researchers in the field of Digital Libraries to present and discuss their current research activities and to envision together further developments.

IRCDL 2015 edition is committed to preserve the traditional emphasis on the multidisciplinary nature of the research on digital libraries which has been characterizing the conference over the years. This multidisciplinary nature ranges from computer science to humanities in the broader sense, including research areas such as archival and library information sciences, information management systems, semantic technoologies, information retrieval, new knowledge environments. This is a continued challenge for the DL field and there is the need to continue to contribute to improve the cooperation between the many communities that share common objectives.

Another focus of IRCDL 2015 will be on the deep changes affecting the world of scientific communication, where new non linear but object-centric products are progressively taking shape, and on the growing role of the integration, publication and preservation of research data.

The aim of IRCDL 2015 is once more to provide the opportunity to explore new ideas, techniques, and tools, and to exchange experiences also from on-going projects. The IRCDL conferences have been launched and initially sponsored by DELOS, an EU FP6 Network of Excellence on digital libraries, together with the Department of Information Engineering of the University of Padua. Over the years IRCDL has become a self sustainable event that is supported by the Italian Digital Libraries Community.

 

A paper about PREFORMA has been accepted and will be presented by the Department of Information Engineering of the University of Padua. The title is “The PREFORMA Project: Federating Memory Institutions for Better Compliance of Preservation Formats”.

 

The 2015 edition is under the patronage and it is sponsored by the Faculty of Computer Science and the Library of the Free University of Bozen-Bolzano. For further information visit the Conference website.
