As announced in the July issue of ERCIM News, the IFIP (International Federation for Information Processing) Technical Committee 6’s (TC6’s) open digital library: http://dl.ifip.org/ is up and running. TC6 deals with Communication Systems and organizes a number of conferences in this area each year. Proceedings of some 30 TC6 conferences are available in the library. The library also gives access to many other IFIP conferences so that the overall number of conferences covered is more than 140. In contrast to other digital libraries, IFIP TC6 does not charge authors for getting their papers published therein.
At the time of writing the most downloaded paper is from IFIP’s Technical Committee 2’s conference on Open Source Systems which took place in Como in June, 2006: “Evolution of Open Source Communities” by Michael Weiss, Gabriella Mouroiu and Ping Zhao. (http://dl.ifip.org/db/conf/oss/oss2006/WeissMZ06.pdf).It has been cited 35 times, according to Google.
During the month of November, the most accessed conference was CNSM2015, the 11th International Conference on Network and Service Management which was held in Barcelona from 9 to 13 November.
