The organization of the European Conference on Digital Libraries (ECDL) 2009 in Corfu from 27 September to 2 October 2009 signaled the second 'visit' of ECDL to Greece, following ECDL 1998 in Heraklion, Crete. The theme of the conference was "Digital Societies", addressing the main issues that users and user communities confront within modern digital libraries, such as the creation and enrichment of information artifacts, sharing and distribution of information objects, retrieval and filtering mechanisms, enhancement of user interfaces to increase productivity, and digital preservation.

On 8 October, the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) highlighted its ACM Europe initiative aimed at recognizing and supporting European members and ACM activities in the region, during a special reception in Paris honouring achievements in European computer science.
