Deadline of Workshop Proposals Submission: 14 June 2019, 24:00 UTC (Fri)
The Program Committee 2019 within the Multi-Stakeholder Steering Group (MSG) is responsible for evaluating all the workshop proposals received. A preliminary list of selected workshop proposals will be announced in late June ( 29th June 2019) by which workshop organizers are expected to finalize their speakers or coordinate on a merger session (if required) before 1st week of July. The draft program agenda will be published by early July.
Criteria for Workshop Evaluations
- Detailedness & Clarity
- Inclusion and Diversity
Proposers are strongly advised to pay particular attention to ensuring diversity of viewpoint, supported by gender, region, stakeholder group, and inclusion of youth and persons from under-represented or marginalized groups, within their organizing teams as well as listed speakers, as these will be reviewed against the key diversity measure. Proposers are further advised that they should list a minimum of three provisionally confirmed speakers and limit their number of speakers to no more than five wherever possible, so as to ensure space in their session for participant engagement. While the latter is not a disqualifying criterion, excessive numbers of speakers will result in lower support for the proposal.
