September, 17-22, 2006. Alicante, Spain
"Towards the European Digital Library"

homepage : Papers :Call for papers (passed)

Papers are invited on substantial, original and completed research, applications and development that have not previously been presented elsewhere and that make new contributions to all aspects of Digital Libraries. Papers should present completed work rather than intended work, and should indicate clearly the state of completion of the reported results. Wherever appropriate, concrete evaluation results should be included. Submissions will be judged on correctness, originality, technical strength, significance and relevance to the conference, and interest to the attendees. Reviewing will be managed by an international Conference Program Committee which will also take final decisions on the technical program.

Important dates

Paper submission deadline: March 3 March 11, 2006
Acceptance notification: May 15, 2006
Camera-ready version due: June 2, 2006

Instructions for authors

The full text of papers in English (maximum 12 pages in the Springer LNCS format) is required at the initial submission stage for review. In the spirit of digital libraries, all papers must be submitted electronically via the ECDL 2006 Conference Management System

Submissions must follow the guidelines for the LNCS format provided by Springer. We recommend the use of LaTeX2e for best results and easiest handling of your documents (now and in the future), but Springer also provides a template for Microsoft Windows. It is the responsibility of authors to ensure that their submission is printable on a standard Postscript printer.

For the initial full text submission for review, authors are requested to submit the paper as a single pdf file. If this constitutes a hardship, or in case of problems submitting the paper via the web-based conference management review system, please contact the program chairs by email to arrange alternative means of submission.

When accepted, final camera-ready version of papers are to be submitted both in pdf and in source format (LaTeX, MS Word or rtf). Detailed information will be provided with the acceptance notification. Note that accepted papers MUST be presented by one of the authors at the conference.


The proceedings will be published by Springer in the series of Lecture Notes in Computer Science, in hard copy and electronic form.
