The Joint Conference on Digital Libraries is a major international forum focusing on digital libraries and associated technical, practical, and social issues. JCDL encompasses the many meanings of the term “digital libraries”, including (but not limited to) new forms of information institutions; operational information systems with all types of digital content; new means of selecting, collecting, organizing, retrieving and distributing digital content; digital preservation and archiving; and theoretical models of information media, including document genres and electronic publishing.

Participation is sought from all parts of the world and from the full range of disciplines and professions involved in digital library research and practice, including computer science, information science, librarianship, archival science and practice, museum studies and practice, technology, medicine, social sciences and humanities. All domains–academic, government, industry, and others–are encouraged to participate as presenters or attendees.

The conference will be held in Vancouver, regularly ranked as one of the world’s most livable cities. The conference hotel, the Westin Bayshore, is a resort hotel on the water’s edge, with sea and mountain views and easy access to the 1000-acre Stanley Park, as well as the city’s shopping and restaurants.
