Step-by-Step Guide for Symposium Chairs/Editors
From Research and Development Working Group Wiki
We'd like to invite anyone to propose a new topic, by adding it to the bottom of the 'Prosed' list. But you'll need to use our template for creating new topics to do this.
- Remember that you must first have proposed a new Research Topic (You'll need to have used our template for creating new topics)
- Your topic must have been selected by the group.
- We can't select your topic until the Proposed Topic is completely filled out.
- Once the topic is agreed and the dates confirmed then Symposium e-mails: CfP Email Boilerplate, @@e-mail to registered participants, Template for Participation Guide can be created and sent.
- As well as the internal lists via Shadi and Shawn there are another Distribution Lists (External to W3C) required.
- The Symposium Web pages now need to be created: Template for Symposium Main Web Page, Template for CfP Web Page.
- There are a number other general Symposium Development (old Symposium Mechanics) issues you should be aware of.
- Once papers are submitted there are Paper Selection Criteria to be considered and a set of Paper Response Templates available.
- Once the symposium is over then it is time to write accompanying note - for which there is a Template.
- Remember to look at Indexing.
- In some cases Alternative Conference Publishing Venues may be appropriate after the note is complete.
