Call for Workshops Proposals
ACM Hypertext 2009 will be running at least two workshops, taking place on the 29th of June before the start of the main conference. The purpose of the workshops is to provide a more informal setting where participants can exchange ideas on a focused topic and suggest directions for future research. As such, they also offer a good opportunity for (young) researchers to present their work and to obtain feedback from an interested community.
Acceptance of workshop proposals will be based on the organizer's experience and background in the topic, and on the relevance of the subject matter w.r.t. the topics addressed in the main conference.
Proposals for Workshops should include the following elements:
- Title and acronym;
- Name(s), affiliation(s), mailing address(es) and e-mail address(es) of the proposers;
- A description of the topic and motivation of the workshop (not exceeding 500 words);
- A short description of the target audience;
- A first version of the Call for Papers;
- Type of the workshop (full-day or half-day);
- Arrangements for the organization of the workshop, including a brief outline of the workshop describing anticipated format, possible session names, invited talks, panels, demos;
- A short description on how the workshop will be advertised so as to ensure a sufficiently wide range of authors and high quality papers along with an estimation of the number of participants;
- Names, addresses, and home page links of people who have agreed to be part of the workshop program committee;
- A brief description of the organizers' experience and background in the topic, and links to homepages of the workshop chairs.
The organizers are encouraged to provide the following additional information:
- A preliminary list of reviewers
- A list of potential authors
- A list of potential attendees
Proposals should be submitted electronically as a single PDF file to the workshop co-chairs:
After the acceptance of a workshop proposal the organizer(s) should:
- Create and distribute a Call for Papers and a Call for Participation;
- Create a Web page for the workshop, the link of which will be published on the Conference Web site;
- Create a Program Committee;
- Review and select contributions to be included in the workshop proceedings (at least 2 reviewers for each paper);
- Schedule and coordinate the workshop activities.
Workshop contributions will appear on the Hypertext 2009 Electronic Proceedings.
