Graduate Student Consortium Submissions


We cordially invite graduate students to submit extended abstracts to, and participate in, the Graduate Student Consortium of the 14th International Conference on Asia-Pacific Digital Libraries (ICADL 2012). The Graduate Student Consortium is intended for graduate students who have a specific research proposal and some preliminary results on digital library related issues, but with sufficient time prior to completing their theses or dissertations to benefit from the consortium experience. The Consortium will offer a critical but supportive opportunity for graduate students to discuss their research in progress and to receive feedback and advice.

Students interested in participating in the Graduate Student Consortium should submit a 3-page extended abstract describing their digital library research and clearly stating the results already obtained and plan for their theses or dissertations.  Submissions relating to any aspect of digital library research, development, and evaluation are welcomed, especially those conforming to the main theme and topics of the ICADL 2012.


Submission information

Students are asked to submit an extended abstract on their research. Submissions must be in pdf and be formatted according to the Springer Publications format for Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS).

Submissions must be no longer than 3 pages. For details on the LNCS style, see Springer's Author Instructions. Graduate Student Consortium proposals are to be submitted via the conference's EasyChair submission page.
