Get set for an International Conference on Digital Libraries

MUMBAI: Wouldn’t it be really good if all the knowledge from across the world can be accessed from one place? That is what a recent initiative by The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI) aims to do. TERI is organising the International Conference on Digital Libraries (ICDL) from 27-29 November 2013 at the India Habitat Centre, New Delhi.

The ICDL 2013 is titled “Vision 2020: Looking back 10 years and Forging New Frontiers” and will review the developments in the past and chalk out a strategy for the future. In addition to conference sessions, thematic workshop-cum-panel discussions are planned to provide a deeper meaning to the theme of the conference.

The objective of the conference is to focus on the creation, adoption, implementation, and utilisation of Digital Library (DL) and their future implications. It also aims to provide an international forum for sharing of experiences among researchers, educators, practitioners, and policy makers from a variety of disciplines such as library and information science, information and communication technology, archival and museum studies, knowledge management and many areas in the fields of Science, Social sciences and Humanities.

Some of the eminent speakers who will be attending the conference include Ian Witten, Professor, Computer Science, University of Waikato, New Zealand; P Anandan, Managing Director, Microsoft Research India, India; Jagdish Arora, Director, INFLIBNET, India; Jean-Marc Comment, Chef d'unité, Département fédéral de l'Intérieur, Archives fédérales AF Unité des techniques de l'information Archivstrasse, Switzerland; Yan Quan Liu, Professor, Southern Connecticut State University, USA; A R D Prasad, Professor and Head, DRTC, Indian Statistical Institute, India; Chunxiao Xing, Professor & Director, WEB and Software Technology, R&D Center, RIIT, Tsinghua University, ChinaR&D Center, RIIT, Tsinghua University, China and A R D Prasad, Professor and Head, DRTC, Indian Statistical Institute, India among others.
