Workshops are intended to provide an in-depth review of a topic of interest, designed to be immediately useful in the classroom. To this end, workshop presenters should plan to provide participants with a set of handouts outlining the material covered in the workshop. We plan to offer a limited number of workshops involving hands-on computer use by participants. All CCSCE workshops will be either 2 or 3 hours.
Workshop Proposals undergo review, although not a blind review. Proposals are evaluated for relevance, anticipated interest, quality, and the availability of appropriate facilities.
Tutorials are conference sessions, 75 minutes in length, in which instruction takes place. The presenter is typically an expert on the topic being presented, and attendees are usually novices. The session may consist of lecture-style instruction, or may involve active learning techniques such as pen and paper exercises or computer use.
Tutorial Sessions proposal review is not blind. Criteria used in reviewing the proposals will include the likely level of interest of the topic.
Workshop or tutorial proposals consist of two documents: the full proposal and an abstract (description). The full proposal is used for the review process. The abstract is the description that appears in the conference proceedings. The format of these documents is desribed in the next sections.
