Tutorials

We invite proposals to run tutorials at the 26th World Wide Web Conference.

WWW2017 will feature a number of tutorials that are intended to provide a high quality learning experience to conference attendees and local participants on current and emergent Web topics.

It is expected that tutorials will address an audience with a varied range of interests and background: 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 WWW2017 and tutorials bridging these areas, or introducing new perspectives in these areas. Preference will be given to tutorials that will include hands-on sessions with concrete examples (when possible) and elicit the participation of the audience.

Submission guidelines

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

  • Title – a concise title.
  • Organisers – the names, affiliation, contact information, and brief bio of the organisers.
  • Abstract – 1-2 paragraphs suitable for inclusion in conference registration materials.
  • Duration and Sessions – proposed duration of the tutorial (half or full day), different sessions if applicable, together with justification that a high-quality learning experience will be achieved within the chosen time period.
  • Topic and Description – a description of the tutorial topic, providing a sense of both the scope of the tutorial and depth within the scope.
  • Audience – a description of the intended audience and the expected learning outcomes.
  • Prerequisite – desired prerequisite knowledge of the audience.
  • Relevance – a statement addressing why the tutorial is important, why the tutorial is timely, how it is relevant to WWW, and why the presenters are qualified for a high-quality introduction of the topic.
  • Previous Editions – if the tutorial was conducted before, where and when was it conducted? Please give details on number of attendees, and how the proposed tutorial differs or builds on the previous ones. If possible, provide a link to slides of the previous tutorial presentation.
  • Tutorial Material – will tutorial materials be provided to attendees? If so, are there any copyright issues?
  • Equipment – indicate any additional equipment needed (if any). The standard equipment includes an LCD projector, a single projection screen and microphones.
