Workshops provide an in-depth review of, or introduction to, a topic of interest, and should provide participants with materials and/or ideas that are immediately useful in the classroom. To this end, workshop presenters should provide participants with handouts outlining the workshop material. We plan to support a number of workshops involving hands-on computer use by participants. All SIGCSE 2014 workshops will be half-day workshops (3 hours).
Workshop Proposals undergo review but not blind review. Proposals are evaluated for relevance, anticipated interest, quality, and availability of appropriate facilities. You may want to review the list of SIGCSE 2011 workshops (1-12, 13-25, and 26-35) prior to submitting a proposal.
SIGCSE will reimburse presenters for handouts (up to $5 per participant) and will provide one night free lodging per workshop (not per presenter) at the conference hotel.
All hands-on workshops at SIGCSE 2014 will use participants' laptop computers at the conference site. The Symposium Committee will help presenters distribute workshop software to participants prior to the Symposium, e.g., by providing attendee e-mail addresses for software distribution. Distribution of software is the responsibility of the workshop leaders. We recommend that the organizers of each hands-on workshop create their own web page (on their own server) with all necessary software and instructions for installation. To accommodate late registrations, we will collect these URLs and make them available to late registrants when they register on-site. We will also provide presenters with mailing lists containing the emails of current enrollees soon after the close of the early registration window.
Proposers of hands-on workshops should indicate which of the following formats they wish for their workshop:
Workshop proposals consist of two documents: the full workshop proposal and a workshop abstract. The full proposal is used for the review process only. The abstract is the description that appears on the Symposium web site and in the Symposium program and proceedings. The format of these documents should be as follows.
The first page is a title page that must contain only the workshop title and presenters (items a and b below). The remaining information (items c through j below) must fit on no more than two pages total written in Times Roman, 12 pt. font. The page format is for 8 1/2 x 11 paper, 1 column, single spaced, and 1 inch margins (top, bottom, left, right). Include all of the following information, in the order given below:
Here are sample Full Workshop Proposals:
The abstract is the description of the workshop that will appear in SIGCSE publications and is what participants will read on the Symposium web site to decide which workshops to attend. This year we are asking that you include information about the intended audience and computing requirements in the abstract to help readers make that choice.
The description is limited to 800 characters (including whitespace) and must match verbatim the abstract section of the Full Workshop Proposal.
The workshop proposal abstract must be submitted in plain text. The abstract for an accepted proposal may contain a URL with more information for participants. (Abstracts of accepted workshops can be edited in response to reviews for the camera-ready submission.)
Deadline: All electronic submissions must be received by Friday, September 6, 2013 at 23:59 (11:59 p.m.) Hawaii-Aleutian Standard Time (HST).
