(The International Conference on Asian Digital Libraries)
The International Conference on Asian Digital Libraries (ICADL), initiated in 1998 and rotated among Asian-Pacific countries, has become one of the premiere meetings in digital library. Since its humble beginning in Hong Kong (ICADL 1998), the meeting has been held in Taipei, Taiwan (ICADL 1999); Seoul, Korea (ICADL 2000); Bangalore, India (ICADL 2001); Singapore (ICADL 2002); Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia (ICADL 2003); Shanghai, China (ICADL 2004); Bangkok, Thailand (ICADL 2005); Kyoto, Japan (ICADL 2006); and Hanoi, Vietnam (ICADL 2007).
The ICADL meetings draw researchers and professionals from library and information science, computer science, social science, information systems, law and policy, education and learning, and various other academic disciplines. Research topics range from digital library technologies and information systems; to content management, service models, and cost and sustainability issues.
The ICADL meetings are planned and facilitated by a group of volunteers, who are experienced in digital library research and international community building; and have contributed significantly to ICADL-related activities.
