Second International ICST Conference on Arts and Technology

December 7–8, 2011
Esbjerg, Denmark

Call for workshops

Conference workshops typically provide valuable in-depth discussions. If you are working in an emerging area, please consider organizing a workshop. They are an opportunity to move a new field forward and build a community. These workshops may consist of both invited and contributed papers that will highlight exciting new developments and currents trends of research.

Workshops will be held on 8 December 2011. Two workshop formats will be available: half-day and full day. Half-day workshops should be scheduled to use 3 working hours, with one break. Full-day workshops should be scheduled to use 6 working hours, with a mid-morning break, a lunch break, and a mid-afternoon break. Workshops typically have 10 to 15 participants. Focused interaction among participants is important, so participants must have informed positions based on prior experience.

Organizers are expected to:

  • Publicize their workshop: organizers of an accepted workshop are encouraged to set up and maintain locally a web page in which they provide further and updated information about their workshop.
  • Solicit papers from potential participants: A workshop paper is generally 2-4 pages long and outlines the submitter's view on the workshop theme and the reasons for the submitter's interest in the topic.
  • Select participants on the basis of papers submitted to them.
  • Send the list of confirmed participants to the Workshops Chair.
  • Distribute papers and other pre-workshop materials to participants in advance of the workshop.
  • Develop a final agenda of workshop activities.
  • At the workshop, the organizer is responsible for facilitating discussion, maintaining productive interaction, and encouraging participation. The emphasis should be on group discussion, rather than on presentation of individual papers. Diversity of perspectives should be encouraged.


ArtsIT workshops might address basic research, applied research, and new methodologies, emerging application areas or design innovations. Each workshop should generate ideas that give the community a new, organized way of thinking about the topic, or ideas that suggest promising directions for future research.
