Sep 10 - Sep 13
Open Access, Open Science, Open Education, Open Data, Open Culture… we are in the “Open Era” and to really OPEN knowledge is the big challenge for Digital Libraries and other information infrastructures of the XXI century.
The International Conference on Theory and Practice of Digital Libraries (TPDL) is a well-established scientific and technical forum on the broad topic of digital libraries, bringing together researchers, developers, content providers and users in digital libraries and digital content management. The 22nd TPDL will take place in Porto, Portugal on September 10-13, 2018. The conference will be jointly organized by INESC TEC and the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto.
The general theme of TPDL 2018 is “Digital Libraries for Open Knowledge”. 2017-2018 are considered “Year of Open” and 2018 is “the TPDL of Open”. TPDL 2018 wants to gather all the communities engaged to make the knowledge more and more open, using the available technologies, standards and infrastructures, but reflecting about the new challenges, policies and other issues to make it happen.
TPDL 2018 provides the community in computer and information science the opportunity to reflect, discuss and contribute to the complex issues of making knowledge open, not only to users but also to re-users, among different information infrastructures and digital assets.
