"Towards the European Digital Library"

homepage : Workshops :Call for workshops (passed)

Proposals are invited for one- or two-day workshops to be held on Thursday September 21st and/or Friday September 22nd. Workshops are intended to bring together communities of interest in the digital library field and to provide a platform for presenting novel ideas in an informal and focused way. Workshops differ from tutorials and papers in encouraging information sharing and discussion amongst highly focused groups of peers, rather than the presentation of information by the organizers and presenters.
