The DAS 2022 Organizing Committee invites proposals for tutorials that are cutting edge, accessible to a wide audience, and delivered by world-class speakers. Tutorials can provide a survey of recent literature on the topic, and/or a graduate-level treatment of the topic. Tutorial proposals in all areas of document analysis are encouraged, especially those related to the themes of the conference. 

DAS Tutorials will be held on Sunday, May 22, 2022. 

DAS tutorials should aim to give a comprehensive overview of a specific topic related to DAS. A good tutorial should be educational rather than just a cursory survey of techniques. The topic should be of sufficient relevance and importance to attract significant interest from the DAS community. Typical tutorial audiences consist of Ph.D. students, researchers and practitioners from both academia and industry. 

In order to facilitate innovative collaboration and interaction between researchers in academia and industry, the Tutorial Chairs strongly encourage proposals for industrial tutorials, in which researchers in companies describe DAS systems and overview industrial solutions to document analysis problems in real use-case industrial scenarios. 

Proposals should be up to 4 pages in length, and should contain the following information: 

  • Title of the tutorial. 
  • Scope and motivation. A brief description of the tutorial, suitable for inclusion in the conference registration brochure. 
  • Preference for the duration (full day or half day). Due to agenda constraints, half day tutorials are recommended. If a full day is needed, provide a brief justification. 
  • A detailed outline of the tutorial. Course description with list of topics to be covered, along with a brief outline. 
  • Relevance for DAS. A description of why the tutorial topic would be of interest to a substantial part of the DAS audience. 
  • Expected target audience in terms of composition and estimated number of attendees. Prerequisite knowledge of the DAS audience for attending the tutorial. 
  • Short CV of organizers. A brief CV of the presenter(s), including name, postal address, phone number, e-mail address, web page, background in the tutorial area (projects, relevant publications or tutorial-level articles on the subject), evidence of teaching experience. 
  • The name and e-mail address of the corresponding presenter. The corresponding presenter should be available for e-mail correspondence during the evaluation process, in the case clarifications and discussions on the scope and content of the proposal are needed. 
  • A statement if the authors of the proposal, if accepted, would be willing to contribute with a paper up to 15 pages in Springer LNCS format, to be included in the proceedings. 


The evaluation of the proposal will take into account its general interest for DAS attendees, the quality of the proposal (e.g., a tutorial that simply lists a set of concepts without any apparent rationale behind them will not be approved) as well as the expertise and skills of the presenters. The primary criteria for evaluation will be whether a proposal is interesting, well-structured, and motivated in relation to Document Analysis and Recognition, rather than the perceived experience/standing of the proposer. 

Last but not least, the tutorial should attract a meaningful audience, cover hot topics and incorporate new knowledge to the community. Those submitting a proposal should keep in mind that tutorials are intended to provide an overview of the field; they should present reasonably well-established information in a balanced way. Tutorials should not be used to advocate a single avenue of research, nor should they promote a product. 


  • Tutorial slides must be provided to us for inclusion on the conference website and also on the TC- 10 and TC-11 websites, as educational material. 
  • The DAS main conference organizers will handle the tutorial registration and provide the space, coffee breaks and other facilities required to organize tutorials (e.g. a room, a projector and a screen, computers for hands-on activities). 

Submission Guidelines and Inquiries 

All proposals should be submitted by electronic mail to the Tutorial Chairs: 

Feedback, comments and/or suggestions would be provided within one week of receiving the proposal. Final acceptance (or rejection) would be decided by March 8th, 2022. 

For any inquiries you may have, please contact us via the above emails.
