Workshop at JCDL 2018 (http://2018.jcdl.org)
Fort Worth, TX, USA

Please see the approved WADL 2018 workshop proposal.

Please also see last year's WADL 2017 homepage and the homepage of the 2016 edition of WADL. That workshop led in part to a special issue of International Journal on Digital Libraries.
We fully intend to publish a very similar IJDL issue based on WADL 2018 contributions.
