ICWE 2014 invites proposals for tutorials that will provide conference participants with the opportunity to gain a better understanding in a broad range of Web Engineering topics. Participants at the tutorials include scientists and practitioners, who are seeking to gain insight and knowledge of up-to-dated strategies, methodologies, technologies, and tools used to develop, maintain and evolve current Web applications.

Proposed tutorials should address issues related to the topics listed in the six main technical tracks; however, further topics are also encouraged as long as they could be of special relevance to ICWE. All proposed tutorials should be half-day (3 – 3.5 hours) in length.

Submission instructions

Proposals must be no longer than 3 pages and must provide a sense of both the scope of the tutorial and depth within the scope. Tutorial proposals must clearly identify the intended audience and its assumed background as well as the learning objectives. Proposals should also include contact information and a brief bio of the presenters. If the tutorial has been given previously, the proposal should describe where the tutorial has been lectured and how it will be modified for ICWE 2014. In summary, tutorial proposals must include the following information:

  • Tutorial title.
  • Presenter(s) contact information: name, affiliation, email, mailing address, phone, and fax.
  • Tutorial abstract with less than 250 words describing the goals and content of the tutorial.
  • Overview of the tutorial’s structure and covered topics as well as short descriptions of concrete learning objectives/outcomes.
  • Intended audience and assumed background knowledge.
  • Presenter(s) biography demonstrating that s/he is an expert on the subject of the tutorial.
  • Relevant references.
  • Indication if the proposed tutorial has been previously presented.
  • Sample slides of the tutorial, if available.

Proposals must be in PDF format and submitted electronically to the tutorial chairs (tutorialchair.icwe2014@webengineering.org) no later than the submission deadline.

Presenters benefits

Along with the notification of acceptance, presenters will receive further instructions on how to prepare a two-page summary of the tutorial (to be included in the main conference proceedings), tutorial notes (to be made available on the conference website), and a brief bio. The summary’s abstract, bio, and a link to the tutorial notes will be included in the program.

Important: Per accepted tutorial, the ICWE 2014 organisation will grand one free conference registration to the presenter(s).
