Call for Papers

1st International Workshop on Augmented Digital Libraries (ADL’14)

Workshop Website: http://adl2014.wordpress.com/

co-located with i-KNOW 2014

Dates: 15th or 16th of September 2014


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.
Research themes that this workshop aims to address include, but are not
limited to:


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

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

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

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

   The design of usable and useful interactive systems for digital

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

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



   Extracting semantics, entities, and patterns from large digital library

   Interlinking and contextualizing ubiquitous data

   Interoperability and Information integration

   Impact and evaluation of digital libraries



   User behaviour and modelling for digital libraries

   Advanced methods for information discovery and exploration

   Interfaces to information for novices and experts

   User studies related to digital libraries interfaces

   Educational uses of digital libraries



   NLP techniques for searching across multilingual full text digital

   Novel methods and techniques for information visualization

   Personal digital information management

   Personalisation and recommendation of search results



   Information visualization in digital libraries

   Navigating information spaces

   Supporting exploration using enriched digital library content

   Navigation using visual metaphors

   Visualisation of large-scale information environments

Important Dates

Research Paper Track

*Submission deadline: 16th April, 2014*

Notification to authors: 16th May, 2014

Camera ready: 5th June, 2014


 We are accepting submissions for the Research Papers Track.

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
(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 16th 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.

Challenge Track

 A themed challenge is currently also being organised. We will shortly be
announcing the details.
