Workshops are intended as small meetings on a forefront and advanced topic that can deserve attention and a dedicated space. The deadline for the proposal is a strict one and the acceptance process will follow a rolling review strategy: the notification will be issued within a few days from the proposal, in order to allow a timely linking of the workshop page to the conference page and a suitable dissemination of the call for papers. Workshop proposals will have to include:

  • the workshop title,

  • a presentation of the workshop and of its framing in the conference,

  • the related research areas and the expected number of submissions,

  • the topics of interest,

  • the names, affiliations and contacts of the organizers,

  • the intended submission modalities.


On proposal approval, the organizers will prepare the final CfP including the above information and, in addition, the link to the workshop page.


Organizers of accepted workshops will be asked to prepare their publication material by July 10th. This comprises:

- the workshop description (4 pages plus references using ACM templates), which will be published in the ACM proceedings; such description will include an introduction to the workshop topic and a short comment on each accepted workshop contribution;

- the contributions accepted for inclusion in the workshop, which will be published in the conference adjunct proceedings with an ISBN.

Therefore we warmly encourage to submit proposals well before the deadline and to take advantage of the rolling review strategy.



Tutorials are small courses on a specific (forefront) tool or technique of interest for the HCI Community. Candidate organizers of a tutorial can submit their proposal as a 2-page description in pdf format including the name of the organizers, affiliations, motivations, organization, expected outcome, duration, material. Upon approval, the tutorial will be devoted a dedicated space on the conference website, and its description will be included in the adjunct proceedings. A limited number of slots are available.



Proposals have to be sent by email to con

writing “Workshop proposal” or “Tutorial proposal' in the email subject.
