Call For Workshop Proposals

The 16th International Conference on Asia-Pacific Digital Libraries (ICADL 2014) invites researchers and practitioners to submit proposals for workshops to be held in conjunction with the main conference. The workshops are to provide venues for participants with an opportunity for in-depth discussion of current and emerging topics of the digital libraries. They can range in format from formal, perhaps centering on presentation of refereed papers, to informal, perhaps centering on extended roundtable discussion among the selected participants.

The workshops will be held on the November 5th, 2014 at the same venue of the main conference. They should cover the topic in either a half-day or a full day. Check schedule for more details
