--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The International Conference on Theory and Practice of Digital Libraries (TPDL) constitutes a leading scientific forum on digital libraries that brings together researchers, developers, content providers and users in the field of digital libraries. TPDL 2016 will take place in Hannover, Germany on September 5-9, 2016. The conference will be jointly organized by the L3S Research Center and the German National Library of Science and Technology.

2016 is not only the 20th edition of the conference; it is also the 300th anniversary of the death of the German polymath and philosopher Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz in Hannover.

Aims and scope
--------------
Valuable and rapidly increasing volumes of data are created or transformed into digital form by all fields of scientific, educational, cultural, and governmental and industry activities. For this purpose the digital libraries community has developed long-term and interdisciplinary research agendas, providing significant results, such as development of Digital Libraries, solving practical problems, accommodating research data and satisfying the needs of specific user communities.

The advent of the technologies that enhance the exchange of information with rich semantics is of particular interest in the community. Information providers inter-link their metadata with user contributed data and offer new services outlooking to the development of a web of data and addressing the interoperability and long-term preservation challenges.

TPDL 2016 under the general theme "Overcoming the Limits of Digital Archives", invites submissions for scientific and research work in the following categories: Full Papers, Short Papers, Posters and Demonstrations, Workshops and Tutorials, Panels and Doctoral Consortium.

Industry submissions are especially welcome, and a dedicated conference track is designed for them.

About Hannover
--------------
Hannover is a pleasant, medium-sized city (516.000 inhabitants) in the northern part of Germany. The city is famous for its fairs, most importantly the annual CeBIT fair at which the latest technologies are presented. In 2000 the World Fair (Expo 2000) took place in Hannover. Historically, the city boasts to be the root of the Hanover line of the English royal family. At first sight, Hannover is a modest non-spectacular city; however, the city has many hidden beauties, including the historical Royal Gardens of Herrenhausen, the new and old City Halls and the Eilenriede - Europe's largest city forest.
