Call for Paper

ICADL2014 welcomes submissions in the areas that resonate with (but not limited to) the theme of “The Emergence of Digital Libraries Research and Practices”.  The Topics of the conference are divided into 5 areas, of which the “Digital Humanities” is specifically highlighted because it is an emerging issue and the aspect of Asia-Pacific’s digital humanities is quite unique and exclusive which must be valuable for sharing in an international forum.
