How to register to a specific Workshop

Workshops are open to any experienced people (academic as well as industrial, Web developers as well as Web users).

To participate in a workshop, you must apply to the workshop organizer, be accepted, and also pay the registration fee for the workshop/tutorial day.

Attendance to a workshop is limited to 12 - 20 persons (experience shows that when attendance exceeds 20 active participants seated around a table, discussion is replaced by formal presentations). A limited number of persons may be invited to join as observers by the workshop organizer if room is available.

Participant registration includes the submission of a short position paper to the workshop organizer (1 to 3 pages, in html). Feel free to include useful references to other on-line materials (personal picture or home page, project summary, relevant papers...).

The selection of participants is done by the workshop organizer on the basis of the position papers submitted. Special invitations can also be sent to a few people, based on well known contributions to the field.

Position papers should use a simple html2 syntax and be easily printable with usual web browsers. Please avoid image inlines as much as possible, include explicit references to external material instead. Be sure than your external references urls can be read on the printed form.

Network preparation

Position papers and email addresses of participants will be put on-line on the workshop Web pages as soon as they are accepted by the workshop organizer.

This will allow participants to "virtually" get together right before the start of the workshop, and to prepare efficiently the actual meeting. This will allow to limit as much as possible introductive round-tables and formal presentations during the sessions, and let the group concentrate on the most interesting issues.

Workshop Results

All materials produced by the workshop will be put on-line on the conference Web Server to form the Workshop Minutes (position papers, summary report...)

The summary report, presented at the conference in a specific Workshop Report Session, should include both consensus and controversial positions. The report should bring the conference as a whole up to date on the field, point to resources in the field, and make relevant recommendations (e.g. about standards, policies, tools, usages...)

For more information

Questions that are specific to individual workshops should be addressed to the workshop organizers; questions about the workshop program in general may be addressed to www5-info@inria.fr.
