We are inviting proposals for workshops to be held together with the Digital Image Computing: Techniques and Applications (DICTA) 2023 conference. The workshops will be conducted on 27th November 2023, at the same location as the main conference in Port Macquarie and will also have an online component. The goal of these workshops is to provide a comprehensive platform for exploring topics that may not be fully covered in the main conference, and to facilitate in-depth discussions on technical, application, and community-related issues.


If you intend to peer-review and publish accepted papers in conjunction with DICTA 2023, please note the following dates (all times in AEST):

Workshop Proposal Submission: 25th June 2023, 1159PM

Last day for workshop camera-ready submission:  30th September 2023

Last day for finalized workshop program: 30th October 2023


Please submit your proposals as a PDF through email (provided above) by June 25, 2023, at 11:59PM AEST. Your proposal should include the following details:

  2. Primary organiser responsible for liaising with the workshop chairs:
  3. Organising team’s experience and background: Provide information that supports the organisers’ ability to run a workshop, and appropriateness to a workshop on this topic, including brief bios for the main organizers.


  1. Format: DICTA 2023 will be in-person, but workshops can be in-person, mixed in-person and virtual, or fully virtual. Organizers should specify their intended format and describe how they will support virtual attendance or the workshop format if applicable.

  5. Special space or equipment requests, if any.


  • Workshops will be required to prepare their own websites, separate from the DICTA 2023 webpage. These pages will include workshop details, organizers, dates, submission instructions, and, once finalized, the workshop program.
  • Workshop organizers should appoint a “primary organizer” who will serve as the main point of contact between the workshop chairs and the workshop organizers.
  • Workshop organizers are expected to respond in a timely manner to requests from the DICTA 2023 organizers (e.g., by providing the workshop program to be included in the main distribution materials).
