We invite tutorial proposals on current and emerging Web-related topics. Tutorials are intended to provide a high quality learning experience to conference attendees. 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 will pay particular attention to tutorial proposals that bridge different areas such as Web and Social Sciences, Web and Disaster Management, Web and other fields in Computer Science. Preference will be given to applications that involve at least one expert in the areas covered by the proposal.
