Information for Workshop Proposals

What are workshops?

Workshops at CCSCNE are conference sessions in which instruction takes place. The presenter is typically an expert on the topic being presented, and attendees are usually novices. The session may consist of lecture-style or active, hands-on instruction. A workshop runs for three hours on Friday morning, before the conference begins.

What the workshop proposal should contain:

Your workshop proposal should contain enough information for the reviewers to evaluate the submission to see how it will fit into the overall program. In particular, your proposal should contain the following:

  • E-mail and U.S. mail addresses for the person or persons giving the workshop.
  • A detailed description of the session, including the style of instruction and what type of classroom and facilities are needed.
  • A brief biography of the presenter, enough for the committee to evaluate the qualifications.
What will happen after your submission:
  • Soon after your proposal is received, the contact person will receive an email acknowledgement of the proposal.
  • If the proposal is received early enough, there may be some clarification questions asked of the contact person.
  • The co-chairs and the program committee will review all submissions and put together a program.
  • Around the second week of January, the contact person will be notified as to whether the workshop will be included in the program.
Accepted workshops:
  • Contact persons will be notified around the second week of January of the acceptance.
  • Before the workshop proposal can be printed in the proceedings, the conference committee will need: 1) a copyright release form from the presenter(s), and 2) a conference registration form and fee from the presenter(s).
Sample workshops and topics from past conferences:
  • Lego robots
  • Java
  • Multimedia tools
Formatting Intstructions:
Tutorial abstracts are included in the proceedings of the conference.
Please follow the instructions below, except that you should use a 12pt font instead of the word-processor default if it is different:

Manuscript Formatting

You will have limited time between tutorial proposal acceptance notification and final copy submission. Therefore, we recommend that you format your initial submissions according to this format to save yourself time later.
