Call for Workshop Proposals


The SETE 2019 organizing committee invites researchers from academia and industry to present proposals for the organization of workshops, to be held in conjunction with the main conference. The purpose of a workshop is to provide participants with the opportunity to present and discuss novel ideas, related to active and emerging topics in research on education.

For each workshop, the organizers will be responsible for setting up the workshop website, advertising the workshop, coordinating the review process, maintaining the SETE workshop co-chairs informed, and collecting the camera ready papers.

The accepted workshop papers will be published in a post-conference proceedings volume of Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS), together with the main conference papers. In order for the accepted papers to be included in the proceedings, at least one author of each paper will have to produce a full registration to the main SETE conference, associated univocally to the paper. The workshop papers can be full papers (10 pages), or short papers (6 pages), produced in the Springer LNCS format of the SETE conference proceedings.

Workshop Proposals Submission

Please email your proposal as a Doc/Docx/PDF attachment directly to the SETE workshop co-chairs (see below). You can also send them inquiries in case you need clarifications.

Deadline for the submission of the workshop proposals is February 28th, 2019. The workshop proposals will be reviewed on a continuous basis. After a workshop proposal submission, notification about acceptance will be given by the SETE workshop co-chairs within 10 days, so the prospective proponents are encouraged to send their proposals as early as possible.
