Call for Workshop & Tutorial Proposals


The organizers of the 2022 ACM/IEEE Joint Conference on Digital Libraries (JCDL 2022; https://2022.jcdl.org/) invite proposals for workshops & tutorials. Workshops are intended to draw together communities of interest both those in established communities and those 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.  Workshops relating to the theme of the conference, "Bridging Worlds", are particularly encouraged.

To prepare your proposals, please use the ACM Proceedings template: http://www.acm.org/publications/proceedings-template

and submit in electronic form via EasyChair:


The proposal should be no more than 4 pages long, indicate whether it is Workshop or Tutorial submission, and include:
