Theme: Providing Quality Digital Information

ICADL has been held across East and South-East Asia This is the 17th annual conference. Since its beginnings in Hong Kong in 1998, ICADL has become one of the premiere international research meetings about digital libraries.

The 2015 Asian Digital Library Conference will explore digital libraries as a broad foundation for interaction with information and information management in a digital world. We particularly welcome work relating to the conference theme of providing high-quality digital information regardless of whether it is raw data streams, numeric, audio-visual, mapping, 3D content, text, social media, compound publications or the metadata that describes the resource and its provenance. 


The main conference sessions will be Dec 10-11 with workshops and other activities on Dec 9 and Dec 12.

  The focus of the workshop will be on the principles and applications of KOS such as classification systems, thesauri, lexical databases, value lists, taxonomies, and ontologies. Workshop participants are expected to share their experience on various stages of KOS development and demonstrate practical KOS applications in real-world environments.
