JCDL 2013 Announces Keynote Speakers

Well folks, our teams at IU and UIUC have been hard at work getting things ready for the Joint Conference on Digital Libraries 2013 to be held in neighboring Indianapolis. We are getting our sponsors on board – Ebsco Publishing, Digital Library Federation, Pervasive Technology Institute, SLAIS at University of British Columbia, just to name a few and we have now announced our keynote speakers – http://jcdl2013.org/keynotespeakers.

We are so lucky this year to have Jill Cousins from the Europeana Foundation, Cliff Lynch from the Coalition for Networked Information and David De Roure from the e-Research Centre at the University of Oxford. So far things are shaping up wonderfully for the program and our hard working program co-chairs: Tim Cole, Rob Sanderson, and Frank Shipman are hard at work finalizing our program with all of our program committee reviewers.
