CF Workshop Proposals: ICIDS 2010


Call for Workshop Proposals at ICIDS 2010

The 3rd International Conference on Interactive Digital Storytelling (ICIDS) will be held in Edinburgh, UK from Monday, November 1st to Wednesday November 3rd 2010.

In conjunction to the ICIDS 2010, researchers and practitioners are invited to submit proposals for workshops/tutorials. Affiliated workshops/tutorials will be held on Sunday, October 31st 2010 at the Informatics Forum, University of Edinburgh. The purpose of these workshops/tutorials is to provide a platform for presenting novel ideas in a less formal and possibly more focused way than the conference itself. The format of each workshop is to be determined by the organisers, but it is expected that they contain ample time for general discussion.  

Submission of proposals should be sent to the ICIDS 2010 Workshop Chair, Mei Yii Lim (, no later than Monday, June 14th 2010. Submission may be made by e-mail with "ICIDS Workshop/Tutorials Submission" in the subject header. Proposals should be no more than 3 pages in length (PDF or Text, proposal form[MSOffice1] ) and must include:

	 The name of the workshop/tutorial.
	 The names and addresses of the organizers with short description of relevant experience.
	 A brief description about why the topic proposed is of particular interest and significance.
	 A brief description about the proposed workshop/tutorial format.
	 A brief description about why and to whom the workshop is of interest and the expected number of participants (at least 6).
	 A list of potential program committee members.
	 An indication of whether the workshop/tutorial should be considered for a half-day or full day session.
	 A description of past versions of the workshop, including dates, organizers, submission and acceptance counts
	 The URL of the workshop web site.
The decision on acceptance/rejection of workshop/tutorial proposals will be made on the basis of the overall quality of the proposal as well as how it fits in with the conference. The organisers of successful workshops/tutorials will be responsible for their own reviewing process, publicity and proceedings. They will also have to handle the finances  fees collection for their workshop. We estimated a charge of approximately 10-15 pounds for each participant for catering and a 25 pounds porter fee. The organisers will be required to closely cooperate with the ICIDS 2010 conference chairs and local organisers to finalise all the necessary details.

The important dates for accepted workshops/tutorials will be:

	 Submission due : 14th June 2010
	 Notification to workshop/tutorial organisers : 5th July 2010
	 Workshops/Tutorials : 31st October 2010
