*** Deadline Approaching (12th November) ***
*** Call for Workshops and Tutorials ***
EuroITV2012 – “Bridging People, Places and Platforms”
10th European Interactive TV Conference
4th – 6th July 2012 - Berlin, Germany

In cooperation with ACM SIGMM, SIGCHI, SIGWEB
Organized by Fraunhofer FOKUS

Proposal submission deadline workshops and tutorials: 12th November, 2011 (23:59 PST)

The next EuroITV conference will be the 10th event in its series. Researchers and practitioners from all over the world meet to discuss latest advances on media technology, HCI, systems & technology, media studies, and content creation.

This call invites proposals for workshops and tutorials (see details below) which need to be submitted through the conference submission system:


Workshop proposals

The purpose of workshops is to provide an informal setting where participants have the opportunity to discuss specific EuroITV topics in an atmosphere that fosters the active exchange of ideas. To encourage interaction, each workshop will be limited to 30 participants and ample time must be allotted for general discussion. Arrange in the schedule at least half of the time for discussion, interaction or creative exercises (presentations should be minimal, and take up not more than half of the workshop time).

The workshop should result in a poster (created either during the workshop itself, if there is enough time, or after the workshop by the organizers) that can be displayed in the poster area and will be explained to interested conference attendees by one of the organizers or attendees during the Poster Session. Accepted workshops might be cancelled if too few attendees (less than 6) register for the workshop.

Workshop proposals should be a maximum of 2 pages, are not anonymized, and should contain the following information:
- A brief technical description of the workshop, specifying the workshop goals and the technical issues that will be its focus.
- A discussion of why and to whom the workshop is of interest.
- A preliminary workshop agenda and a proposed schedule for organizing the workshop. This should include a brief description of how the organizers intend to encourage an atmosphere appropriate for a workshop, highlighting how you will stimulate interaction and creativity.
- The names and email addresses of the proposed workshop organizing committee. These people must be knowledgeable about the technical issues to be addressed and cannot all work at the same institution.
- The name of the primary contact for the organizing committee.
- A description of the qualifications of the individual committee members with respect to the EuroITV field.
- (If available) a list of workshops previously arranged by members of the proposed committee.


Tutorial proposals

The tutorial proposals will be evaluated on the basis of the quality of the proposal, their benefits to participants and their fit within the overall programme. Factors to be considered include relevance, timeliness and audience appeal; suitability for presentation in a half-day or full-day format; use of appropriate presentation methods and exercises; past experience and qualifications of the instructors.

Tutorials that advocate a single avenue of research or promote a product will NOT be considered. Accepted tutorials might be cancelled if too few attendees register for the tutorial to support the costs of running it.

Tutorial proposals should be a maximum of 2 pages, are not anonymized, and should contain the following information:
- A brief description of the tutorial to be used for publication purposes
- A detailed outline of the tutorial including tutorial title, instructor name,  course content, presentation format.
- Characterization of the tutorial as introductory, intermediate or advanced.
- Length of the tutorial (half-day, full-day)
- Characterization of the potential target audience, including prerequisite knowledge and a description of why the tutorial topic would be of interest to a substantial audience, as well as the  benefits for the audience (what will people learn).
- A brief resume of the presenter/s, which should include name, postal address, phone and fax numbers, e-mail address, background in the tutorial area, evidence of experience in EuroITV research, and evidence of teaching experience.
