IRCDL is a yearly deadline for Italian researchers on Digital Libraries related topics. This year the focus of IRCDL 2013 was on emphasizing the multidisciplinary nature of the research on digital libraries which not only goes from humanities to computer science but also crosses among areas in the same field ranging, for example, from archival to librarian sciences or from information systems to human-computer interaction.
