=============================================

Digital libraries are becoming increasingly important in research.
Traditionally they have been used for tasks such as finding and storing
research outputs, however they are increasingly being used as sources for
mining information, discovering new trends and evaluating research
excellence. The rapid growth in the number of documents being deposited in
digital libraries requires the provision for novel approaches that are
driven by the needs of knowledge discovery, refinement, and visualisation,
aimed at enhancing the individual’s experience.

The foundations of such an experience are not built upon digitisation
alone, but on a multi-layer knowledge structure that does not only include
information about the documents in the underlying collection in the form of
metadata, but also information about the content of those documents, such
as the entities mentioned and the relationships between them. It is with
these building blocks that it will become possible to relate search results
with user needs, for instance by the automatic generation of different
views that integrate and personalise information items together which can
than be exploited by novel interfaces and visualisation techniques.

The goal of this workshop is to provide a forum for researchers and
practitioners from the fields of digital libraries, natural language
processing, information retrieval, user interfaces, the semantic web and
other disciplines, where they can constructively explore and discuss the
conception and realisation of systems incorporating such novelties.

Some of the research themes that this workshop aims to address include, but
are not limited to:


   1.

   The development of appropriate representations and techniques for the
   automatic or semi-automatic extraction of metadata from source documents;
   2.

   The automatic identification of entities, in large volumes of documents,
   and the relationships between these entities;
   3.

   The provision of services and applications capable of linking and
   contextualizing content across large volumes of documents;
   4.

   The facilitation of search and navigation through innovative user
   interfaces and visualisations;
   5.

   The design of usable and useful interactive systems for digital
   libraries;
   6.

   The evaluation of different solutions to the above through effective
   usability studies using existing collections of documents.


Topics of interest include, but are not limited to the following themes
related to Digital Libraries:

Important Dates

Research Paper Track

Submission deadline: 30th April

Notification to authors: 21st May
Camera Ready: 5th June

Submissions

 We will be accepting submissions for both a Research Papers Track as well
as for a Challenge Track (more information about this track will be issued
very soon!).

For the Research Papers Track we welcome submissions of original work that
has not been submitted or published elsewhere. We encourage full papers
(max 6 pages) describing significant work in progress, late breaking
results or ideas and challenges for the domain. Possibly papers can be
accepted as full papers or as posters.

Authors of accepted full papers will be given the opportunity to extend a
revised final version for the final proceedings.

All accepted papers will be in the proceedings.

Submissions should follow the ACM SIG
proceedings<http://www.acm.org/sigs/publications/proceedings-templates>format
(standard style). The review process is single-blind review and each
paper will be reviewed by at least 3 members of the program committee.

Research Track papers should be submitted in pdf format to
easychair<https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=adl2014>,
no later than midnight Pacific Daylight Time on *30th April 2014*.

Accepted papers will be published in the CEUR workshop
<http://ceur-ws.org/>proceedings and selected high quality submissions
will be published in the
supplementary proceedings of i-KNOW 2014.
