ICADL 2018 : The 20th International Conference on Asia-Pacific Digital Libraries

(12 March 2018) Since its beginnings in Hong Kong in 1998, ICADL has become one of the premiere international conferences for digital library research. ICADL 2018 at the University of Waikato in New Zealand offers a valuable opportunity for researchers, educators, and practitioners to share their experiences and innovative developments.

The main theme of ICADL 2018 is “Maturity and Innovation in Digital Libraries”. High-quality, original research papers are invited as well as practitioner papers identifying research problems and future directions. Submissions that resonate with the conference’s theme are especially welcome. Nonetheless, all topics in digital libraries will be given equal consideration. Following the ICADL tradition, the 2018 proceedings will be published as Springer conference proceedings as part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series (LNCS), included in and indexed by SCOPUS. Electronic copies will be available on the Springer website.


The conference will be held at Waikato University in Hamilton, New Zealand, a city of 140,000 people centered on the Waikato River in the heart of New Zealand’s rolling pastures. The conference will will be co-located with the annual meeting of the Asia-Pacific iSchools Consortium and with the NZ Conference on Computer-Human Interaction (CHINZ). Hosting these conferences together will bring a diverse group of academic and professional community members from all parts of the world to exchange their knowledge, experience and practices in digital libraries, and other related fields.
