ETD 2018, the 21st international symposium on electronic theses and dissertations will be held September 26-28, 2018 at the National Central Library, Taiwan.

ETD 2018 will provide excellent educational opportunities for professionals from graduate schools, libraries, academic computing and others who work with electronic theses and dissertations (ETDs), institutional repositories, graduate students and scholarly communications. Our goal is to offer relevant, practice-oriented content to support ETD productivity improvement, ETD professionals, advance ETD operations and encourage the formation of regional ETD associations and networking communities as well as to provide useful and innovative resources, standards, and technology for the development and support of ETD programs.

This year’s program includes 4 plenary sessions, 3 penal sessions, 33 breakout presentations, also includes user group meeting of ETD consortium in Taiwan, a poster presentation session, a technology vendor fair as well as a variety of networking opportunities. For an overview of the conference activities visit our Program Overview Webpage at

For plenary speeches, we have invited speakers from the U.S, Slovenia, Australia, Singapore and India, to share their knowledge and experience of institutional repositories and ETDs. We are especially honor to invite Edward A. Fox, Professor of Computer Science at Virginia Tech, also the Executive Director of NCLTD. In his speech address “Applications of Big Data Analysis for the Worldwide Collection of ETDs” Dr. Fox will talk about how “big data” collection could support a broad range of applications, aiding students, researchers, scholars, sponsors, administrators, librarians, archivists, and others interested in this vast body of knowledge.
