Call for Tutorials

ICWE 2012 invites proposals for tutorials that will provide conference participants with the opportunity to gain knowledge and insights in a broad range of Web Engineering areas. Participants at the tutorials include scientists and practitioners, who are seeking to gain a better understanding of the technologies, methodologies, tools, and techniques used to develop and maintain Web-based applications.

Proposed tutorials can be either half-day long (3 hours) or full-day long (6 hours). Tutorial proposals should address issues related to the topics of the conference. Topics not mentioned in the topics of interest list are also encouraged as long as they are of special relevance to ICWE. Tutorials that have less than 8 early registrants will face the risk of cancellation.

Tutorial proposals must clearly identify the intended audience and its assumed background. Proposals must be no more than 3 pages and must provide a sense of both the scope of the tutorial and depth within the scope. The intended length of the tutorial (3 or 6 hours) should also be indicated, together with justification that a high-quality presentation will be achieved within the chosen time frame. Proposals should also include contact information and a brief bio of the presenters.
