JCDL 2008 has concluded successfully and we hope that you enjoyed your visit to Pittsburgh.  It was a whirlwind week, filled with sessions, tutorials, workshops and social events. Thanks to our keynote presenters – Bill Buxton, Fernanda Viegas, Martin Wattenberg, and Alex Szalay for starting each conference day with an intriguing discussion of the digital libraries field – and where it might be heading in the near future. The poster/demo reception was a huge success and it was fascinating to see what research projects and directions are underway in this incredibly diverse field. It was a fun evening (albeit a bit brisk) for sailing the Three Rivers which made Pittsburgh famous. We hope that you’ll come back again to see even more of our beautiful city.

Thanks to our sponsors, presenters, and members of the Program Committee for their critical support of JCDL 2008.
