CFP
for
Workshops

The Web Conf 2018 will feature a number of co-located workshops that are intended to provide a forum for researchers and practitioners in Web technologies to discuss and exchange positions on current and emergent Web topics. Workshop attendants will exchange ideas and experience, establish common ground in research areas or practical problems, and hopefully identify new opportunities for collaboration and new directions for future activity. Preference will be given to timely topics that will favor highly interactive discussions.

The Web Conf 2018 Local Organizing Committee will offer logistic support for the workshops, where registration, catering, room allocation and audio/visual will be arranged by the conference organizers. The supported workshops will take place on April 23 and 24th, before the main conference, at the conference venue. Workshop organizers are expected to inform participants that, since the proceedings will be published, accepted contributions may be regarded as prior publications by other conferences or journals. Workshops may vary in length, but the preference is for either a half day (3 hours), or a full day (6 hours). Accepted workshops will be scheduled so as to avoid conflicts with conference sessions in similar or related areas.

Workshops chairs:

  • Eyhab Al-Masri (University of Washington, USA)
  • Marie-Christine Rousset (Univ. Grenoble Alpes, IUF, France)

Inquiries can be sent to workshopschairs (at) www2018.thewebconf.org

Submission Guidelines:

Workshop proposals should be written based on the following structure in the suggested order:

  • A concise title.
  • The names, affiliations and contact information of the organizers. A typical workshop should count no more than three co-chairs affiliated with different organizations.
  • Proposed duration of the workshop – half or full day. The organizers may exceptionally consider well justified 2-day workshops.
  • Preference for a date; but, the proposal must not be conditioned on the workshop date, since it is likely that some workshops will not get their preferred date.
  • A statement of the workshop: objective/goals.
  • A statement detailing: Why is the workshop topic important? Why is the workshop timely? How is it relevant to WWW?
  • A two-paragraph description of the workshop topic and themes.
  • If the workshop was conducted before, where and when was it conducted? Please give details on number of attendees, number of submissions, and acceptance ratio. List any other related or same workshops being conducted in the same year, or were conducted, at any other venues.
  • A description of the workshop format: How many papers do you hope to present, how many invited speakers, type of activities (e.g., short paper presentation, invited talks, demos, posters, etc.), and an approximate timeline (breaks should be synchronized with scheduled breaks if possible.)
  • A description of how workshop submissions will be evaluated, and a tentative PC list (with indication of whether PC members have already been contacted and/or have expressed interest.)
  • An indication on whether the workshop registration will be open to all interested registered parties or limited.
  • A short bio of the workshop organizers, including a description of their qualifications relative to the topic area, and past experience in organizing/facilitating workshops or research meetings.
