ECDL 2006 CALL FOR PAPERS -- deadline extension
10th European Conference on Research and Advanced Technology for Digital
	            "Towards the European Digital Library"
		     September 17-22, Alicante, Spain

***** NEW EXTENDED DEADLINE: March 11 ******

The 10th ECDL will be held in Alicante (Spain) in September 2006. The
ECDL has become the major European Conference on Digital Libraries and
associated technical, practical and social issues, gathering
researchers, developers, content providers and users in the field.

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, including, but not limited to:

- Concepts of Digital Libraries and digital content.

- Collection building, management and integration.

- System architectures, integration and interoperability.

- Information organization, search and usage.

- Multilingual Information Access and Multimedia Information handling.

- User interfaces for Digital Libraries

- User studies and system evaluation.

- Digital archiving and preservation: methodological, technical and legal

- Digital Library applications in e-science, e-learning, e-government,
cultural heritage, etc.

The special topic of this edition of the ECDL Conference is "Towards
the European Digital Library", with the aim of emphasizing the
contribution of the European Digital Library research community (and
its liaisons with the international research community in general) to
the current efforts of the European Commission in this
direction. Papers focusing on this topic are particularly welcome.

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.

Submission information

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 at


Submissions must follow the guidelines for the LNCS format provided by
Springer (http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html).
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

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 (pc_chairs@xxxxxxxxxxxx) 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.
