ICADL, which started in Hong Kong in 1998 and traveled many countries in the Asia-Pacific and is known as a major digital library conference along with JCDL and TPDL, will be held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia from November 4 to 7, 2019. Many emerging research areas such as Social Informatics, Digital Humanities, Open Sciences were emanated from digital library research over the past decades. ICADL 2019 is planned as a forum for researchers to exchange ideas and discuss together across domains for innovative digital information environment for the future. An important feature of ICADL is the diversity of the Asia-Pacific region in many aspects – language, culture, social systems, development levels, etc. This diversity will bring new ideas and thoughts to the participants.

ICADL 2019 will be co-located with the 9th Asia-Pacific Conference on Library Information Education and Practice (A-LIEP 2019; http://aliep2019.org/). ICADL and A-LIEP share some common research interests, for example, research data in various domains such as STEM, health information, humanities and social sciences, from different perspectives such as data analytics and research data management. Annual meeting of Asia-Pacific chapter of iSchools (AP-iSchools; https://ischools.org/) will be also co-located with ICADL. Thus, ICADL 2019 will provide an excellent international forum to meet people with different backgrounds but common research interests in digital information for the future.  Details of the conference as below:
