Call for Tutorials

Important Dates

  • Proposal Submission Deadline : Nov. 5, 2013
  • Notifications of Acceptance : Dec. 10, 2013
  • Tutorial Dates : Apr. 7 – 8, 2014

Half- and full-day tutorials from leading researchers form an important part of the WWW program, valuable to both researchers and developers seeking to pick up new skills or the latest developments in an area. WWW 2014 intends to offer conference attendees and local participants a rich diversity of high quality tutorials reflecting current topics and trends in the WWW domain. As tutorials are educational events, they should provide a comprehensive introduction to the state-of-the-art in the tutorial’s topic. Proposed tutorials can address the interests of a varied audience: beginners, developers, designers, researchers, practitioners, users, lecturers and representatives of governments and funding agencies who wish to learn new technologies.

We encourage submissions of tutorial proposals on all topics in the general areas of WWW 2014 and tutorials bridging these areas, or introducing new perspectives in these areas. Tutorials may provide an introduction to new Web technologies and trends, describing the application of the Web in specific domains or present techniques from other fields that are of relevance for the Web. Tutorials may be theoretical; however, we encourage the tutorial speakers to incorporate hands-on sessions and concrete examples when possible.
