Call for Tutorials


Tutorial topics should have a direct relevance to the topics of the conference. Anticipated areas of interest at the time of TPDL2016 include topics related to digital libraries, their foundations and methodologies, as well as their relevant applications and usages, including cross-disciplinary areas. We especially welcome tutorials bridging multiple areas, or presenting new perspectives in these areas, and tutorials with a practical hands-on approach that educate participants in using a technology after the tutorial.

The tutorials are part of the main conference. Therefore proposals will be considered for short tutorials of 1.5 hrs and 3 hrs. Tutorials may cover material either at an introductory level (introducing new areas of research or practice to attendees) or in depth (advancing the understanding of attendees with basic familiarity of the area). Tutorials may target researchers, practitioners, or the field as a whole.


A tutorial proposal should include the following:

  • Title of the tutorial
  • Instructor(s) and their credentials (short CV, link to personal web page)
  • Aims, scope and learning objectives of the tutorial
  • Relevance to TPDL2016 and significance for the research field
  • Full description (1-2 pages to be used for evaluation)
  • Tutorial history (previous offerings of tutorial, if any)
  • Format of tutorial (1.5 hrs or 3 hrs)
  • Target audience and prerequisite knowledge


Tutorial proposals should be maximum four pages in length and they can be submitted in PDF format via the conference submission system

Upon submitting the tutorial proposal, the proposers commit that in case the tutorial is accepted, all lecturers will physically attend and present the tutorial.

Each submitted proposal will be reviewed by the Tutorial Chairs with the approval of the Conference General Chairs and Program Chair. Notification of acceptance will be sent via email to the workshop proposers by April 12, 2016.

The selected tutorials will be organized as part of the Main Track of the conference between 6-8 September 2016. The Organizing Committee will provide substantial support in the area of logistics management, namely registration, catering, halls and infrastructure.

The deadline for submissions is February 23, 2016 8 March 2016 (New!).
