WWW 2016 will feature a number of tutorials that are intended to provide a high quality learning experience to conference attendees on current and emergent Web topics. It is expected that tutorials will address an audience with a varied range of interests and background: beginners, developers, designers, researchers, practitioners, users, lecturers and representatives of governments and funding agencies who wish to learn new technologies. We encourage submissions of tutorial proposals on all topics in the general areas of WWW 2016 and tutorials bridging these areas, or introducing new perspectives in those.

Preference will be given to tutorials that will include hands-on sessions and that will elicit the participation of the audience.

WWW 2016 will offer logistic support for the tutorials: registration, catering, room allocation and audio/visual will be arranged by the conference organizers. The supported tutorials will take place on April 11 and 12th, before the main conference, at the conference venue.

Submission Format

Tutorial proposals must include:

  • A concise title.
  • The names, affiliations and brief bio of the organizers.
  • Proposed duration of the tutorial – half or full day, different sessions if applicable, and justification that a high-quality learning experience will be achieved in the chosen time period.
  • Topic and description – a description of the tutorial topic, it’s scope and the depth to which it will go in that scope.
  • Audience – a description of the intended audience and the expected learning outcomes.
  • Prerequisite – desirable background knowledge of the audience.
  • Relevance – why the tutorial is important, why it is timely, why it is relevant to WWW and how the presenters are qualified and experienced to deliver a high-quality tutorial.
  • Previous editions - if the tutorial was conducted before, where and when was it conducted? Please give details on number of attendees, and how the proposed tutorial differs or builds on the previous ones.
  • Additional equipment required (if any) – the standard equipment includes an LCD projector, a projection screen and microphones.
