WWW 2015 - Call for Workshop Proposals (new deadline: Oct. 17, 23:59 Hawaii Standard Time)
 
WWW 2015 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.
 
WWW 2015 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 May 18 and 19th, 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.

Submission format
 
A workshop proposal must include:
 
- A concise title.
- The names and affiliations 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 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.
- 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
