The International Conference on Asian Digital Libraries (ICADL) is one of the leading international conferences in digital libraries research. ICADL 2007 will provide a forum for sharing ideas, research results and experiences in digital libraries, related technologies and associated practical and social issues. Participants from diverse backgrounds are encouraged. Previous conferences have included practitioners, researchers, educators and policy makers from a variety of disciplines such as computer science/information technology, library and information sciences, archival and museum studies, knowledge management, and many areas in the social sciences and humanities.
