Call for Proposals for Short Courses and Tutorials

Among the main technical activities of WebMedia 2022, there are short courses, which aim at updating topics not normally covered in the curricula or that arouse great interest among academics and professionals. We welcome proposals in recent areas, or areas that have not yet been explored, and in topics with great potential to attract the interest of students and professionals, in order to better qualify them for their research and/or their jobs. The short courses will be presented during the event using 4-hour slots.

In the 2022 edition, WebMedia innovates with an open call for tutorial submissions. Tutorials are an excellent opportunity to provide information on recent topics taught by novice or experienced researchers. Tutorials will be presented during the event using 2-hour slots.

The proposed tutorials can be introductory or advanced and should cover topics of interest to the multimedia and web communities. Proposals will be evaluated on their relevance to the conference, their suitability for presentation in a tutorial format, and the qualifications of the instructors. We will look for a balance of topics in the technical program and we will also consider the potential interest of participants.

Submitted proposals will be evaluated by three or more members of the evaluation committee The following criteria will be considered in the evaluation: relevance and adherence to the topics of the conference, technical quality of the proposal and experience of the proponents in the proposed topic. The best proposals on different topics will be accepted for presentation and publication as book chapters (short courses) or short papers in the adjunct proceedings of the event (tutorial).

For the presentation during WebMedia 2022, national air tickets and two nights of accommodation for one author of each accepted short course/tutorial will be supported by the conference.
