Notes for the Workshop Organizers:
Workshop chair(s) will be responsible for the following:
1. Producing a web page and a “Call for Papers/Participation” for their workshop. The URL should be sent to the Digital Tools & Uses Congress Workshops chairs. It should mention that at least one author of each accepted submission should attend the workshop and that all workshop participants must pay the appropriate registration fee. The CfP should make it clear that the registration of at least one author is required for the paper to be included in the conference proceedings.
2. Ensure that all workshop papers are a maximum of 2500 words in length. It is the responsibility of the workshop organizers to ensure that this page limit has been fulfilled.
3. Taking full responsibility of workshop submission, reviewing process and decisions
4. The publication of workshop papers will be n the same volume as the main conference.
5. Advertising the workshop beyond the conference web page.
6. Assistance in producing a camera-ready version of the workshop proceedings.
7. If the workshop is too small (i.e. does not attract enough submissions) the Digital Tools & Uses Congress Organizing Committee may propose to merge that workshop with another. So we encourage workshop organizers to attract a large community. In extreme situations we may also cancel workshops if there are insufficient number of submissions, while we may consider the paper for the main tracks.
8. Workshop organizers must ensure that suitable quality measures have been taken to ensure that the accepted papers are of high quality. All papers must be reviewed by an International Committee with a minimum of 2 reviews per paper.
