Tutorial Proposals

We cordially invite experts interested in educating members of the digital library community who are
unfamiliar with a relevant set of technologies or concepts to plan their tutorials in the 14th International Conference on Asia-Pacific Digital Libraries (ICADL 2012).

The tutorial program aims at providing an opportunity to offer in-depth education on a well-established or “cutting-edge” topic relevant to research or practice in digital libraries. It should address a single topic conforming to the main theme and topics of the ICADL 2012. The tutorials should cover the topic in either a half-day or a full day, to a level that attendees will have sufficient knowledge to follow and further pursue the material beyond the tutorial. Leaders of the tutorial sessions will be expected to take an active role in publicizing and recruiting attendees for their sessions.
