The ICTeSSH 2021 conference plans to hold two 90 minutes pre-conference workshops or trainings. Workshops and trainings will take place on Monday, June 28, 2021, and on Tuesday, June 29, 2021 from 9am to 10:30am CEST.

Pre–conference workshop

Pre–conference workshop should be small, focused meetings intended to provoke intellectual discussion, among a diverse range of participants, on a specific topic.

A workshop proposal should contain the following information:

  • Title of the workshop
  • Names and affiliations of the organizers
  • Short description of the workshop including workshop objectives and workshop format
  • Expected/maximal number of participants and if appropriate, depending on the workshop format, the expected number of submissions.
  • Prior history of this workshop, if any, including the number of submissions, number of accepted papers, and attendee count
  • Please provide details about your plans to advertise to SSH communities and how you intend to encourage participation at the workshop

Pre–conference training

Pre–conference training should be a 90 minutes class on the usage of some ICT tool, platform, service, or infrastructure. It is intended to improve the digital skills of participants.

A training proposal should contain the following information:

  • Title of the training
  • Names and affiliations of the organizers
  • Short description of the training including expected learning outcomes
  • Expected/maximal number of trainees and profile (necessary skills and knowledge) of trainees.
  • Please provide details about your plans to advertise to SSH communities and how you intend to encourage participation at the training
  • If you have any specific networking requirements, please state that  in your proposal

Practical considerations

The workshop/training organizers should also take into account the following practical considerations:

  • High number of attendees is expected taking into account experience from the previous year (more than 100 attendees per workshop/training), meaning organization of a highly interactive workshop/training is quite complex

  • Although it is not mandatory, any financial support by a workshop/training organizer is highly appreciated by the conference organizer (500 – 1,000 euros per workshop/training)
  • If appropriate, depending on a workshop format, individual workshop organizers will be responsible for setting up the paper submission site and review process

If you have any further questions about a workshop/training proposal, do not hesitate to contact the ICTeSSH 2021 organizer by email at ictessh@uns.ac.rs.
