After the ICDIM 2016 conference held in Porto, Portugal we are now looking forward to the 12th edition of the International Conference on Digital Information Management to be organized at the Kyushu University in Fukuoka, Japan from September 12 -14, 2017. The details will follow with upcoming updates of the www.icdim.org website. The ICDIM is a multidisciplinary conference on digital information management, science and technology. The principal aim of this conference is to bring people in academia, research laboratories and industry together, and offer a collaborative platform to address the emerging issues and solutions in digital information science and technology. The relative small setting allows for a good discussion in a safe enviroment, in particular for young and/or new researchers.
