[InetBib] ACM/IEEE JCDL 2021 - 1st Call for Papers

Dear colleagues,
Please find the 1st cfp for the annual ACM/IEEE Joint Conference on Digital 
Libraries (JCDL) below.
**JCDL 2022 - Bridging Worlds

ACM/IEEE JCDL 2022 in Cologne - Germany will be the debut of our community in 
Europe since the foundation of JCDL. Our goal is to reinforce the Digital 
Libraries community and simultaneously bring together researchers and 
practitioners from all over the world.

**Call for Papers

The annual ACM/IEEE Joint Conference on Digital Libraries (JCDL) is the primary 
international event for the inter- and multi-disciplinary community of 
academics and practitioners in digital libraries coming from computer, 
information and social sciences, and other related disciplines. JCDL 
encompasses the many meanings of the term digital libraries, including notions 
of managing, operating, developing, curating, evaluating, or utilizing 
collections of data/information/knowledge in various domains.

JCDL 2022 - Bridging Worlds. In this global pandemic that put many of us into 
lockdown, quarantine, and separation for a long time, we will do our best to 
bring together communities and people again. As digital libraries are 
traditionally strong in connecting the digital and the physical world, we will 
pick up this heritage and establish a hybrid format that is as open as possible 
to everyone.

Research Papers: Variable Page Length

JCDL 2022 will implement a variable paper length policy for research papers. 
There is no longer a distinction between long and short papers, nor a need of 
condensing or enlarging medium-length submissions. The maximum paper length is 
10 pages in content plus unrestricted space for references. The minimum paper 
length is 4 pages in content plus unrestricted space for references. Any page 
length in between is allowed.

Paper length should be commensurate with contribution size and authors should 
submit a paper whose length reflects what is needed for the content of the 
work. The reviewers will assess whether the contribution is appropriate for the 
given length. Longer papers may be given more presentation time during the 
conference. We hope this new streamlined process will preserve the variety of 
paper lengths and foster the exchange of ideas without creating an artificial 
distinction among them. Reviewers will be explicitly advised to judge the 
quality of a paper and not its length.

Late Breaking, Datasets and Demos

We additionally invite 2-page papers:

  *   Late breaking results present new insights or information about research 
that was completed after the full paper submission deadline in January.
  *   Preliminary work: submissions describing preliminary but novel ideas or 
results not previously published in other venues.
  *   Dataset submissions are a new category that allow description of research 
relevant datasets. These need to be either fully publicly-available or have to 
contain a publicly available subset.
  *   Demonstrations showcase innovative digital libraries technology and 
applications, allowing you to share your work directly with your colleagues in 
a high-visibility setting.

The presentation type of late breaking, preliminary work, dataset and demo 
submission will be decided during the reviewing process.

All submissions must be original works, not previously published or under 
review for publication elsewhere, in English, in PDF format, and in the current 
ACM two-column conference format. Suitable LaTeX, Word, and 
Overleaf<https://www.overleaf.com/gallery/tagged/acm-official> templates are 
available from the ACM 
Website<https://www.acm.org/publications/proceedings-template> (use "sigconf" 
proceedings template for LaTeX and the Interim Template for Word).

All submissions will be rigorously peer-reviewed in a double-blind reviewing 
process. Submissions must be anonymous and all references to authors' works 
have to be anonymised. Submissions are to be made via


All accepted papers will be included in the proceedings and will be presented 
at the conference. At least one author of each accepted paper is required to 
register for, and present the work at the conference at sight in Cologne. In 
case of travelling restrictions, authors will be enabled to present the work 

Selected best papers will be invited for a special issue to be published with 
the International Journal on Digital Libraries (IJDL), Springer.
