Call for Workshops

Submission Deadline: August 17th 2012, midnight BST.

Proposals are welcomed for half-day workshops to be held on the afternoon of the first day of the conference.

Workshops may address any theme within the Digital Economy, but preference will be given to those which demonstrate alignment with the four challenge areas: IT as a Utility, Sustainable Society, New Economic Models, Communities & Culture.

Workshops should aim to bring together interested parties to demonstrate technologies, explore conceptual themes, build communities, generate funding proposals, or simply to further develop a particular theme. Proposals are welcomed that will excite and engage audiences; our aim is that every delegate will be interested in taking part in a workshop. 

Proposals should be no more than two sides of A4 (as PDF) and should be structured as follows:

  • Workshop Title
  • Proposed Chair(s) and their Details
  • Description of the Workshop
  • Proposed Activities & Outcomes
  • Technical & Accommodation Requirements
  • Any Additional Information / Comments

Please note that Workshop organisers will be responsible for recruiting speakers, and that attendance will be limited to the size of accommodation that is available at the venue.

Decisions on workshop acceptance: September 10th, 2012.
