Submissions to this category are expected to propose sessions that go beyond presentation formats and that actively engage participants in different and novel types of activities, e.g. problem definition, small discussion groups, mapping themes, do-it-yourself, hands-on group work etc. Their topic should concern any area of interest of PD at any level, e.g. theoretical reflections, methodologies, practices, etc. Workshops take place 2 days before the main conference in sessions of half-day or full-day.

Submissions and Review Process

Submissions to this category should be made through the conftool system, using the PDC simplified template as explained in the «Submit» page.

Submissions will be reviewed for applicability to the PD conference by the chairs and the PC. The following main evaluation criteria will be considered to select and accept the proposals: relevance of topic to the conference, interactivity of the format, potential to draw participants.

Submission Formatting and Length

Use the PDC template and structure your proposal so that it  includes: the workshop’s title and its goals; the planned format, methods or techniques used to structure the workshop; the way participants should contribute to the workshop; its relevance to PD; its need and value at PDC; and a draft schedule. In particular, it should make clear how the workshop topic and format link to the conference theme. Include few lines on how the organisers have the relevant expertise to set up this workshop. Convey the duration of the workshop (half/full day), minimum and maximum number of participants, and provide clear ideas on how participants will be recruited. When describing the recruitment procedure, important dates should be clearly communicated (check against the timetable of the conference!). Finally, the workshop proposal should include a clear statement about the expected concrete outcomes of the session (e.g. journal publication, research proposal, future collaborations, exhibition). If authors anticipate the need of specific equipment or setup for running the workshop, they should contact the workshop chairs well in advance of the submission deadline to map and discuss possibilities.

Formatting and length

Submissions should be made according to the appropriate template available on the submission page.

Submissions should be written in English and should not be longer than 3 pages. References do not count towards the page limits.

Interactive Workshop proposals will be published in Vol 2 of PDC proceedings published by ACM International Conference series.
