EDUPUB: How to Participate

NOTE: The EDUPUB 2013 workshop is an invitation-only working meeting. The deadlines to request participation and submit position papers have passed, and the workshop is effectively full. If you have not received an invitation, but nevertheless believe based on the workshop goals and agenda that it is important for your organization to participate, you may request a late invitation to the event manager at .


To ensure productive discussions, the workshop is limited to 100 attendees. Participation is free and open to IDPF members and non-members. Each organization may provide a maximum of two attendees.


Position papers are required to be eligible to participate in this workshop. Organizations or individuals wishing to attend must submit a short position paper (in English) explaining their perspectives on a workshop topic of their choice (or, if necessary, a statement of interest indicating an intention to submit a position paper) no later than 22 August 2013. Participants should have an active interest in the area selected, ensuring other workshop attendees will benefit from the topic and their presence. Given the practical focus of this workshop, submissions about ideas and concepts that have been implemented in real-world products are particularly encouraged.


Position papers should:

  • Explain the participant's perspective on the topic of the Workshop

  • Explain their viewpoint

  • Include concrete examples of their suggestions

Refer to position papers for a recent W3C Workshop co-organized by IDPF ( ) to see what a position paper generally implies.


Note: To help the organizers plan the workshop: If you wish to participate, please send email as soon as possible to stating

  • that somebody from your organization plans to submit a position paper;

  • whether you want to send one or two participants;

  • whether or not you wish to offer a presentation and/or demonstration.

Please note that this expression of interest does not mean that you registered for the workshop. It is still necessary to submit a position paper for review by the Program Chairs and Program Committee. If your position paper is selected, you will receive a workshop invitation and registration link.


The Program Chairs will ask the authors of particularly salient submissions to explicitly present their position at the workshop to foster discussion. Presenters will be asked to make the presentation slides publicly available on the workshop home page in HTML, EPUB, or PDF.


All submissions should be one to five pages in length, although they may link to longer versions or appendices. Valid formats are HTML, EPUB, or PDF. Send position papers via email to Submitting a position paper implies permission to publish same on the public Web page of the workshop.
