Guidelines for Demos, Tutorials and Workshops
Demonstration Proposals

Demonstration proposals must adhere to the conference’s submission policies. They must be submitted electronically using the conference management tool, and in camera-ready format adhering to the formatting guidelines. They will appear in the conference proceedings. Demonstration proposals must be submitted by November 2, 2009 (9:000pm PDT). Proposals should be focused on new Web technology, advances in applying Web technology, or innovative use of Web-based techniques. Proposals must be submitted in camera-ready format and are limited to 4 pages. They should describe the demonstrated system, indicate what is going to be demonstrated, and state the significance of the contribution to database technology or applications. Demonstration proposals must not be published or under consideration for publication elsewhere.

Tutorial Proposals

Tutorial proposals must clearly identify the intended audience and its assumed background. Proposals must be no more than 5 pages and must provide a sense of both the scope of the tutorial and depth within the scope. The intended length of the tutorial (full day or half day) should also be indicated, together with justification that a high-quality presentation will be achieved within the chosen time period and the indication of the main learning outcomes. Proposals should also include contact information (name, email, address, telephone number, and FAX number) and a brief bio of the presenters. If the proposed tutorial has been given previously, the proposal should include where the tutorial has been given and how it will be modified for WWW 2010.

Proposals must be submitted electronically by November 15th, 2009 (9:00pm PDT). Tutorial presentations will be published and made available to WWW participants.

Workshop Proposals

WWW 2010 will again feature a number of co-located workshops. A workshop proposal should be no more than 5 pages and should include the workshop title, technical description of the the topic and issues, justification, chairs, potential program committee members, duration and history (if any) of the workshop. If the proposal is for a recurring workshop, information about attendance, number of submissions and accepted papers must be included in the proposal. Proposals should be submitted by October 10th, 2009 (9:00pm PDT).

WWW 2010 offers the usual serviced workshops, where registration, catering, room allocation and audio/visual will be organized by the conference organizers. The serviced workshops will take place on Monday and Tuesday, before the conference. The workshops will be hosted at the conference venue. Workshop proposals may have any duration from half-a-day to 1 day. Please indicate your preference for a date. Note that proposals must be unconditional concerning scheduling. It is very likely that some workshops will not get their preferred date.
