Call for tutorials

Web Information System Engineering (WISE) Conference has established itself as a leading international conference on research, development and applications of Web technologies, methodologies, and applications. The 15th edition of WISE 2014 (WISE'14) provides a leading forum for presentation of original research results, as well as exchange and dissemination of innovative, practical development experiences. The conference covers all aspects of web technologies, methodologies, and applications. In addition, WISE'14 draws researchers and application developers from a wide range of Web technology related areas such as Advanced application of databases, Web mining and knowledge discovery, cloud computing, Information retrieval, Web-based collaboration, Workflow and E-services. By promoting novel, high quality research findings, and innovative solutions to challenging Web issues, the conference seeks to continuously advance the state-of-the-art in web technologies.

We invite proposals for tutorials from active researchers and experienced tutors. Ideally, a tutorial will cover the state-of-the-art research, development and applications in a specific web technology direction, and stimulate and facilitate future work. A tutorial should not mainly focus on only the presenter's previous work. Tutorials on interdisciplinary directions, novel and fast growing directions, and significant applications are highly encouraged.

WISE'14 will host short and long tutorials that focus on new research directions and initiatives. The tutorials will be part of the main conference technical program, and are free of charge to the attendees of the conference.

A tutorial proposal should be formatted in the following sections:

  • Title
  • Abstract (up to 150 words)
  • Topic overview: What will the tutorial be about? Why do you believe this is an interesting and significant subject for the Web community at large?
  • Content details: An outline of the tutorial in the form of a bulleted list with references and estimates for the time that will be devoted to each subject (up to 1 page).
  • Tutor's short bio and their expertise related to the tutorial (up to 100 words per tutor)
  • Length of the tutorial: short (1.5-3 hours) or long (3-6 hours). If you are flexible, please indicate in the outline the content that will not be included if a short tutorial is given.
  • A list of up to 20 most important references that will be covered in the tutorial
  • (Optional) URLs of the slides/notes of the previous tutorials given by the authors, and any specific audio/video/computer requirements for the tutorial

Proposals should be submitted via email to: The submission deadline is June 19, 2014 (11:00pm PST). Notifications will be made by July 19, 2014.
