Call for Tutorial Proposals for ACM Web Science 2016

- Submission Deadline: December 1, 2015
- Website: http://www.websci16.org/
- Proposal Submission Email: websci2016tutorials@googlegroups.com
- Notification of acceptance: December 10, 2015

WebSci2016 is seeking proposals for tutorials about tools, techniques, 
and research methodologies that allow Web Scientists to analyze and 
understand phenomena on the Web. Given the interdisciplinary nature of 
the WebSci community, consisting of experts in Computer Science, Social 
Science and Engineering, we specifically aim for tutorials which either 
introduce technical topics, methods and tools to a non-technical 
audience or present social science methods and theories to a more 
technical audience. Tutorials may provide, for instance, an in depth 
look at an emerging technique, method or software package or a broad 
summary of an important direction in the field.
The tutorial format will be entirely determined by the tutorial 
organizers. We will favor tutorials embed hands-on experiences, 
collaborative approaches, and interactivity above tutorials that provide 
only frontal lectures. We are looking for contributions from experts 
from different disciplines such as social science, computer science, 
physics and economics.


Proposals for tutorials should be no more than four (4) pages in length 
(10pt, single column, with reasonable margins), written in English, and 
should include the following:

- Tutorial title and summary. A short description (500 words max) of the 
scope main objective of the tutorial that will be published on the main 
WebSci website.

- Names, affiliations, emails, and personal websites of the tutorial 
organizers. A main contact author should be specified. A typical 
proposal should include no more than four co-organizers.

- Duration. The tutorial duration can range between two hours to the 
full day, depending on the type of activities scheduled. The Tutorial 
Chair might conditionally accept a proposal and suggest a different 
duration to best fit the organization of the whole event.

- Tutorial schedule and activities. A description of the proposed 
tutorial format, a schedule of the proposed activities (e.g., 
presentations, interactive sessions) along with a *detailed* description 
for each of them. The tutor(s) for each activity should be specified as 

- Target audience, prerequisites and outcomes. A description of the 
target audience, the prerequisite skill set for the attendee as well as 
a list of goals for the tutor to accomplish by the end of the tutorial.

- Expected number of attendees. This is required for logistics planning.
Material available on the tutorial website. The organizers of accepted 
tutorials are encouraged to set up on their own a web page containing 
all the information for the tutorial attendees before the tutorial day. 
The proposal should contain a detailed list of the material that will be 
made available on the website.

- Precedent [when available]: If the authors of the proposal have 
organized other tutorials in the past, pointers to the relevant material 
(e.g., slides, videos, web pages, code) should be provided.
Special requirements [when needed]: A list of equipment and that needs 
to be made available by conference organizers (other than wifi, a 
projector, and a regular workshop room setup).

Submissions must be in PDF to the submission email 
(websci2016tutorials@googlegroups.com). Pre-submission questions can be 
sent to the chair at the following address: claudia.wagner@gesis.org


The full conference fee will be waived to the tutorial organizers.
