The International Conference on Theory and Practice of Digital Libraries (TPDL) constitutes a leading scientific forum on digital libraries that brings together researchers, developers, content providers and users in the field of digital libraries. TPDL 2015, the 19th edition of the conference, is organized by Poznań Supercomputing and Networking Center and will be held held in Poznań, Poland on September 14-18, 2015.

Valuable and rapidly increasing volumes of data are created or transformed into digital form by all fields of scientific, educational, cultural, governmental and industry activities. For this purpose the digital libraries community has developed long-term and interdisciplinary research agendas, providing significant results, such as development of Digital Libraries, solving practical problems, accomodating research data and satisfying the needs of specific user communities.

TPDL 2015 under the general theme “Connecting Digital Collections”, invites submissions for scientific and research work in the following categories: Full Papers, Short Papers, Posters and Demonstrations, Workshops and Tutorials, Panels and Doctoral Consortium.
