A tutorial is a session in which specific material is taught, either by one person or several people. For example, previous tutorials have addressed automotive user design standards, ambient notification prototyping, eye-tracking and EEG methods.
Workshops/Tutorials have a length of 3.5 to 4 hours (morning/afternoon). They may include keynotes, hands-on activities, practice sessions, group discussions, and panel discussions. They are free of charge to all those who have registered for the main conference, with preferences being indicated on the registration form. All workshops/tutorials have maximum participation limits. Admission to them is on a first-come, first-served basis. Each conference attendee can sign up for two events (workshop or tutorial).
The intent of workshops/tutorials is to develop a common understanding of research questions or methods, share different approaches to common questions, or serve to build and foster a (new) research community. Workshops/tutorials can, but are not required to, include solicited position papers and presentations. You can find more detailed examples on the pages of previous years.
What is the selection process?
Each proposal will be reviewed by two of the workshop/tutorial chairs. Proposals will be accepted based on their topics, anticipated engaging interactions, realistic time frames, and expected outcomes. We may get in touch with you if similar proposals need to be refined or merged or if changes are necessary to get your proposal accepted.
What do I need to do if the proposal gets accepted?
We recommend submitting a two-minute pitch video to advertise your workshop/tutorial. We also strongly recommend setting up a website for your workshop. Finally, organizers must register for the conference.
How many workshops/tutorials can I be on as an organizer?
You can help organize up to two proposals as organizers are expected to attend their own workshops/tutorials.
General formats and template information can be found here!
Submissions consist of workshop/tutorial descriptions including short organizer/presenter biographies and should be uploaded to the Precision conference submission system:
Extended Abstract: An extended abstract is required for workshops/tutorials and must be formatted following the new single-column ACM SIGCHI format.
Word and Page Limit:
See details about the use of the templates.
Submissions must contain the following:
The following will be considered in selecting workshops/tutorials:
Proposals will be reviewed by two workshop/tutorial co-chairs and selected based upon their content, the organizers’ qualifications, and logistical constraints. Co-chairs will reach out to authors of these submissions to discuss details about format and support. It is our goal to support selected workshops/tutorials to achieve their respective purpose and to ensure all attendees may actively contribute to/learn from these sessions.
Accepted proposals will be advertised with the organizers' names. Thus, we expect all organizers of accepted proposals to be present at the workshop/tutorial.
In addition, we expect workshops/tutorials to accept attendees commensurate with the number of organizers (approx. 5 attendees per organizer). If otherwise, please inform the workshop/tutorial chairs prior to submission.
Participants are expected to bring the necessary equipment to the conference site with them. By default, the conference will provide:
If you require additional material, there might be a possibility for the conference to provide it. Please contact the workshop and tutorial chairs early.
