WWW2005 workshops are intended to provide a forum for highly interactive discussion on focused topics. Workshop proposals should address current Web-related issues which can benefit from small-group information exchange and discussion. Attendance at past workshops has been limited in order to promote interactivity. Workshop organizers are responsible for determining whether the workshop will be open registration or by invitation-only. Workshop organizers are responsible for conducting, if appropriate, their own "Workshop Call for Participation." The WWW2005 site will link to these CFPs.


If you are interested in organizing a full-day workshop, please email your proposal to All proposals must include:

  • A two-paragraph description of the workshop topic and content;
  • A statement of the workshop's anticipated outcome;
  • A statement why you believe the workshop topic to be important to the Web in the Spring 2005 timeframe;
  • A statement describing how the workshop registration will be managed (open or closed);
  • If workshop submissions will be solicited, a description of how these submissions will be evaluated;
  • A short description of your qualifications relative to the topic area including your past experience in organizing/facilitating workshops.
