EXTENDED DEADLINES: We invite proposals to run workshops at the 26th World Wide Web Conference.

The 26th World Wide Web Conference will be held from 3-7 April 2017 in Perth, Western Australia.

WWW2017 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 favour highly interactive discussions.

The WWW2017 Local Organising Committee will offer logistic support for the workshops, including: registration, catering, room allocation and audio/visual needs. The supported workshops will take place on the 3rd and 4th of April 2017, at the conference venue – the Perth Conference and Exhibition Centre.

Workshops may vary in length, but the preference is for either a half day (3 hours), ¾ day (4.5 hours), or a full day (6 hours). Accepted workshops will be scheduled so as to avoid conflicts with conference sessions in similar or related areas.
