CALL FOR WORKSHOP PROPOSALS
TVX workshops provide an informal setting where participants have the opportunity to discuss familiar and novel topics in an atmosphere that fosters active engagement and exchange of ideas. Workshops are expected to generate ideas that enable the TVX community to explore new, organized ways of thinking about specific topics, and emerging areas or that result in promising directions for future research.
Workshops will be held on the first day of the conference (June 26, 2018) and can either be a half or full day in length. Workshop organizers may consider including a short tutorial as part of the program, but are strongly encouraged to dedicate at least half of the time for discussion, interaction, or creative exercises. Each workshop will therefore be limited to 30 attendees (including organizers) to further foster a truly interactive experience. The workshop organizers will also have the possibility to exhibit workshop results during one of the poster sessions at the main conference.
INFO FOR PROSPECTIVE ORGANIZERS
We invite potential workshop organizers to submit their proposal by November 30, 2017 in ACM SIG Proceedings format (http://www.acm.org/publications/proceedings-template-16dec2016). The maximum length is 4 pages. Proposals should address the following points:
- Aims and scope of the workshop
- Format and duration (full or half day), draft schedule indicating which kinds of sessions you intend to include
- Type(s) of submissions/contributions that will be solicited
- Plans for disseminating the call for contributions and attracting participants (e.g., list of institutions, research projects or communities which are affiliated with the workshop, and from which you expect contributions)
- Short bios of the organizers
Organizers of accepted workshops are responsible for setting up a workshop website. They may ask any kind of contribution to be submitted by workshop participants in advance (e.g. full papers, short papers, posters, demonstrators, videos). These contributions will be published in the TVX2018 adjunct proceedings on Figshare. Abstracts of the accepted workshops (2 pages) will be published by ACM and indexed by the ACM Digital Library. Workshop organizers are responsible for setting up a submission system and for organizing the review process.
All workshop proposals will be rigorously evaluated with respect to their quality, relevance, and suitability for the conference. Accepted workshops might be cancelled or merged with another workshop that addresses a similar topic, or if too few attendees (fewer than 8) register.
