Call for Papers

Full and Short Papers

The organizers of the ACM/IEEE Joint Conference on Digital Libraries 2019  invite paper submissions. We encourage paper submissions that relate to the conference theme, but the program will not be  limited to this area.

Paper authors may choose between two formats:  full papers and short  papers. Both formats will be rigorously peer reviewed. Complete papers are required; abstracts and incomplete papers will not be reviewed. All papers must be original contributions. The material must therefore not have been previously published or be under review for publication elsewhere. Both formats will be included in the proceedings and will be presented at the  conference.

Full papers: 

  • At most 10 pages
  • Report on mature work, or efforts that have reached an important milestone
  • Typically will be presented in 20 minutes with 10 minutes for questions and discussion

Short papers: 

  • At  most 4 pages
  • Highlight efforts that might be in an early stage, but are important for the community to be made aware of; can also present theories or systems that can be described concisely in the limited  space
  • Typically will be presented in 10 minutes with 5 minutes for questions and discussion

All accepted papers will be published by ACM as conference proceedings and electronic versions will be included in both the ACM and IEEE digital  libraries.

Submission details: The paper should use the ACM Proceedings template, located at:

Paper submissions are to be submitted in electronic format via the conference’s EasyChair submission page. Please see the  conference home page for instructions.
