ETD2016 "Data and Dissertations"
19th International Symposium on Electronic Theses and Dissertations

July 11-13, 2016,
University of Lille, France

ETD2016, the 19th International Symposium on Electronic Theses and 
Dissertations, will take place from July 11 to July 13, 2016, at Lille. The 
conference will be hosted by the Humanities and Social Sciences University of 
Lille and co-organized with the Networked Digital Library of Theses and 
Dissertations (NDLTD), an international organization dedicated to promoting the 
adoption, creation, use, dissemination, and preservation of electronic theses 
and dissertations (ETDs).

From 1998 on interested institutions in the United States began meeting 
annually for what would become a series of symposia on electronic theses and 
dissertations sponsored by NDLTD and designed to help universities initiate ETD 
projects. The first symposium was held at the University of Tennessee Health 
Science Center in 1998, and since then, the gatherings have taken place at 
universities all around the world, with the first European venue being Humboldt 
University in Berlin, in 2003. More recently, theses conferences were held in 
Sydney, Aberdeen, Pittsburgh, Cape Town, Hong Kong, Austin, Uppsala, Lima and 
Leicester. ETD2015 was hosted by the Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi, 
India from November 4-6, 2015.

In 2016, the ETD International Symposium series comes for the first time to 
France. The theme of the conference is "Data and Dissertations", with a focus 
on the handling of research data produced by PhD students. As the former events 
of the series, ETD2016 will again provide delegates the unique opportunity to 
learn from each other, discuss new projects and initiatives, share experiences 
and good practices from around the world, and provide perspectives for further 
research and development. ETD2016 is open for university librarians and other 
information professionals interested in ETD and research data, scientists and 
scholars in library and information sciences, and LIS students. The conference 
language is English.

Important Dates
* 15th April 2016 : Submission deadline for posters
* 30th April 2016 : Notification of acceptance
* 11th – 13th July 2016 : Conference at University of Lille (France)


Proposals for posters are invited on all relevant topics in the field of 
electronic theses and dissertations, in particular

advanced technologies and infrastructures
second generation ETD programs
open science, open access, open repositories
initiatives for better introducing PhD students to new ETD technologies
long-term preservation
ETD publishing and embargoes

Other posters on ETDs can deal with text and data mining, research evaluation 
(ETDs and CRIS),  legal and ethical aspects, semantic enrichment, special 
collections, digitization programs and national ETD policies.

The main topic of ETD2016 will be “Data and Dissertations”, with a focus on 
initiatives, projects and experiences in the field of research data related to 
ETDs. Some questions for posters:

how should such research data be handled?
how do PhD students manage their own datasets?
what should be done to improve their data skills?
And there are many other questions, e.g. legal and ethical issues, formats, 
identifiers, storage and long term preservation, workflows, best practices etc.

ETD2016 will be a forum to discuss new developments and infrastructures and to 
provide insights and perspectives for further progress, in the global framework 
of open data and open science.

We invite participants who want to present a poster at ETD2016 to submit an 
English abstract between 400 and 500 words. The abstract should clearly deal 
with the problem/goal, the applied methodology, and anticipated results. The 
abstract should also include the title of the poster, name(s) of the author(s), 
and full address information. Each submitted abstract will be reviewed in 
double-blind by at least two members of the program committee.

Abstracts for posters must be submitted on the conference website. Authors will 
be notified of the program committee's decision by end of April 2016. This 
notice will be accompanied by further guidelines and recommendations.

We look forward to see you in Lille.
