Call for Workshops and Tutorials

The organizers of the 2024 ACM/IEEE Joint Conference on Digital Libraries are pleased to invite proposals for workshops and tutorials. Workshops are intended to bring together communities of interest, both in established communities and in communities interested in discussion and exploration of a new or emerging issue. They can range in format from formal, perhaps centering on presentation of refereed papers, to informal, perhaps centering on an extended roundtable discussion among the selected participants. Tutorials provide an opportunity to offer in-depth education on a topic or solution relevant to research or practice in digital libraries. They should address a single topic in detail. They are not intended to be venues for commercial product training. Workshops and tutorials relating to the theme of the conference, ” Digital Libraries in the Age of AI: Challenges and Opportunities”, are particularly encouraged. Workshops and tutorials can span a half-day or a full day.

Proposal Format

Workshop and tutorial proposals should not exceed 2 pages in length. Successful proposals should include:

  • The title of the workshop or tutorial
  • A description of the workshop/tutorial, including whether it is planned as a half-day or full-day event
  • A topical outline of the workshop/tutorial
  • Anticipated audience for the workshop/tutorial
  • Expected outcomes of the workshop/tutorial
  • Short biographies and contact information of the proposers

Submission Guidelines

All submissions must be in English, in PDF format, and in the current ACM two-column conference format. Suitable LaTeX, Word, and Overleaf templates are available from the ACM Website (use “sigconf” proceedings template for LaTeX and the Interim Template for Word, https://www.acm.org/publications/proceedings-template). All proposals should be submitted via Easychair: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=jcdl2024.

By submitting your article to an ACM Publication, you are hereby acknowledging that you and your co-authors are subject to all ACM Publications Policies, including ACM’s new Publications Policy on Research Involving Human Participants and Subjects. Alleged violations of this policy or any ACM Publications Policy will be investigated by ACM and may result in a full retraction of your paper, in addition to other potential penalties, as per ACM Publications Policy.

Please ensure that you and your co-authors obtain an ORCID ID, so you can complete the publishing process for your accepted paper.  ACM has been involved in ORCID from the start and we have recently made a commitment to collect ORCID IDs from all of our published authors. We are committed to improve author discoverability, ensure proper attribution and contribute to ongoing community efforts around name normalization; your ORCID ID will help in these efforts.

Organization and Logistics

All workshops and tutorials are planned as in-person events. However, hybrid events (with at least one organizer present in-person) can also be accommodated. Please indicate your plan and preference in your proposal.
