CALL FOR WORKSHOP PROPOSALS (ORGANISERS)
Workshops provide an informal setting where participants have the opportunity to discuss specific TVX topics in an atmosphere that fosters the active exchange of ideas. Workshops should generate ideas that will give the TVX community a new, organized way of thinking about a topic or suggest promising directions for future research. If you are working in an emerging area in TVX, please consider organizing a workshop.
To encourage discussion and interaction amongst participants, workshop organizers should schedule at least half of the time for discussion, interaction or creative exercises. Presentations and keynotes might be part of the program, but organizers are encouraged to design a truly interactive forum.
Workshops will be held on the first day of the conference (3rd June 2015) and can either be one half or full day in length. Accepted workshops might be cancelled or merged with another workshop that addresses a similar topic, or if too few attendees (fewer than 8) register. Each workshop will be limited to 30 attendees (including organizers) to further foster interactivity. Each workshop will result in a poster, which communicates its outcomes. These posters can either be created during the workshop itself, or after the workshop by the organizers. Workshop posters will be displayed during a poster session on the first evening of the conference.
Workshop proposals have to be submitted by 15th November 2014 in SIGCHI Extended Abstracts format (LaTeX/Word template in landscape orientation). The maximum length is 6 pages. Proposals should describe the workshop’s aims and scope in detail. They should further explain the interactive format and list a draft schedule. Illustrate how you are going to disseminate your Call for Contributions, and list any institutions, research projects or communities which are affiliated with the workshop, and from which you expect contributions.. Please also include short bios of the organizing committee.
Workshops may ask any kind of contribution to be submitted by workshop participants in advance (e.g. full papers, short papers, posters, demonstrators, videos). Workshop organizers are responsible for setting up a submission system and conducting reviews. The deadline for workshop contributions should be no later than the 2nd March 2015 and participants should be notified of acceptance no later than the 2nd April 2015.
