ICWE 2009 - Call for Tutorials

ICWE 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 researchers, 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. A one-page summary of the accepted tutorials will be included in the conference proceedings.

Proposed tutorials can be either half (3 hours long) or full (6 hours long). Tutorial proposals should address issues related to the topics of the conference. Topics not mentioned in the general conference list are also encouraged as long as they are of special interest and relevance to ICWE.

Presenters should also make the slides available to the ICWE participants, either in hardcopy form or on-line.

Regardless of the number of speakers, tutorial allowance include a free registration for ICWE and an honorarium for half-day (full-day) tutorial of:

  • 700 euros (1000 euros), if the number of registered attendees are below 20
  • 1000 euros (1500 euros), if between 21 and 50 attendees.
  • 1500 euros (2000 euros), if above 50 attendees.

This amount is per tutorial, not per speaker. If there are multiple speakers for the tutorial, the share of the honorarium that the speaker should receive must be indicated on the agreement form. Travel and accommodation arrangements are up to the speakers.

Submission instructions

Proposals should also include contact information 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 ICWE 2009.
