The purpose of the RCDL conference series is to stimulate evolution of the Russian digital libraries community and encourage research in this field. RCDL provides an open forum for exchange of experience, ideas and results as well as stimulates communication and cooperation between experts in the field.

A major Russian event in the digital libraries field, RCDL is attracting increased attention from foreign participants and helps to improve international collaboration. English is the second official language of the conference and most of Russian participants are able to speak English, providing a foundation for efficient communication.

Over 12 years of RCDL history several hundreds russian and foreign participants attended RCDL events including researchers, developers, practitioners, students, postgraduates, policy makers and DL users.

RCDL closely cooperates with related world conferences including ECDL and JCDL stimulating international collaboration in the digital library field. Conference is supported by Russian Foundation for Basic Research and Moscow ACM SIGMOD Chapter.

Building and deployment of digital libraries require contribution from numerous scientific disciplines. Programmes of past RCDL conferences (St.Petersburg, 2000 - Protvino, 2001 - Petrozavodsk, 2002 - Dubna, 2003 - St.Petersburg, 2004 - Pushchino, 2005 - Yaroslavl, 2006 - Suzdal, 2007 - Pereslavl, 2008 - Dubna, 2009 - Petrozavodsk, 2010 - Kazan and 2011 - Voronezh) covered variety of related topics.

Special attention is paid to the progress of digital libraries research and application projects funded by the Russian Foundation for Basic Research (RFBR) and other programs.

Conference topics include, but are not limited to:

  1. Methods and models for information representation and interaction.
  2. Advanced projects for information systems in science
  3. Big Data technologies
  4. Composite content representation: multimedia, geographical, statistical data and other special content formats
  5. Data analysis in social networks
  6. Data intensive application management in Grids and Clouds
  7. Data intensive systems infrastructures
  8. Data mining, knowledge discovery
  9. Data storage and indexing
  10. Data streams and publish-subscribe systems
  11. Digital curation, preservation, and archiving; data provenance
  12. Digital Libraries and their implementation experience
  13. Digital Library models, architectures and infrastructures
  14. Digital resource quality, quality metrics, data cleansing
  15. Information security
  16. Integration, interoperability and mashups of heterogeneous information resources (structured, semi-structured, unstructured)
  17. Metadata, ontologies, conceptual modeling
  18. Multilingual and multimedia information analysis and retrieval
  19. Models and tools for massive data parallel analysis
  20. Non-traditional (NoSQL) - semi-structured, graph, multidimensional, etc. data models
  21. Scientometrics in digital libraries
  22. Semantic aware services; context awareness in information access
  23. Semantic Web, Linked Data, Web of Data
  24. Social media and dynamically generated content, crowdsourcing
  25. Tools for development of digital libraries and digital collections
  26. Virtual environments for research, collaborative information environments
  27. User modeling, user interfaces, and personalization; recommender systems

Collocated workshops on related topics enrich the conference program even further. In particular, since 2003 Russian Information Retrieval Evaluation Seminar (ROMIP) attracts leading Russian IR researchers.

Since 2009 within the scope of conferences RCDL, the workshop "Doctoral Research on Information Technologies Related with Digital Libraries" is holded, on which authors of the works are given the possibility to present current results of the researches, and also to discuss their strengths and weaknesses with more experienced colleagues. The best talks of the workshop are recommended for publishing in journals certified by the State Commission for Academic Degrees and Titles (VAK).
