Conference Policies

Peer Review Process

Proposals for participation will be reviewed on the basis of relevance, significance, and practical usefulness to conference attendees.

Please read the Call for Papers for more detailed information about the criteria for poster and workshop selection.

Poster presentations will be reviewed and selected on the basis of the following criteria:

  • Relevance to the areas of digital libraries and scholarly communications
  • Significance of content
  • Helpfulness/interest to conference attendees
  • Originality and freshness of concept

Workshops and forums will be selected based on their relevance and usefulness to conference attendees and, because space is limited, the promptness of submission.


Conference Code of Conduct

Conference Code of Conduct

The Texas Digital Library (TDL) organizes an annual conference for the benefit of its members.  The goal of TCDL is to bring together those working on digital projects in order to build a practical, usable and sustainable model for digital libraries. TCDL works actively toward the creation of a diverse, welcoming, and inclusive community of digital library practitioners, and is therefore dedicated to the creation of a safe, respectful, and collegial conference experience for all attendees.

Open, critically engaged discourse is expected to flourish at the Texas Conference on Digital Libraries. Participants are encouraged to respect the differences among attendees, and to be mindful of the diverse nature of our community in preparing presentations and engaging in conversation. There is no place at TCDL for harassment or intimidation based on race, religion, ethnicity, language, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, physical or cognitive ability, age, appearance, or other group status. Unsolicited physical contact, unwelcome sexual attention, and bullying behavior are likewise unacceptable. Nevertheless, constitutionally protected expression cannot be considered harassment under this  code.
