The follow FAQ should answer many of the questions a workshop presenter may have. If you require additional information or clarification, please contact Bruce Cronin <firstname.lastname@example.org>
What is the difference between a Workshop and a Lecture/Poster presentation?
A workshop is specifically geared toward teaching attendees some specific method, tool or software relevant to social networks. These presentations are not free and require additional payment for attendance. Students are charged £50 for each 3 hour session and INSNA members and non-members are charged £100 for each three hour session. You must be registered for the conference to participate in the workshops.
Why is the workshop submission deadline different from the abstract submission deadline?
Registering for workshops occurs when registering for the conference. Having all conference workshops available for registration is important to prevent confusion and registration problems for the attendees. Workshops are reviewed in a separate effort by conference organizers prior to the abstract submission deadline.
What are the time offerings available for workshops and how do they work?
Workshops may be one or two three hour sessions. If the latter, the sessions are usually sequential, either all on one day or the last time slot of one day and the first time slot of the next.
Can I allow people to register for only the first session of a two session, 6 hour workshop? Yes, you can. Please make a note of this on the workshop submission form. Otherwise, people will only be allowed to register for the entire workshop.
Can I limit the number of attendees for my workshop?
Yes, you can specify a limit on the workshop submission webpage.
Can I post content for people to download prior to the workshop?
INSNA’s website does not have the capacity to maintain extensive data, documents and other content posted by users. However, a reference to some other website can be placed in the workshop abstract directing people to the content.
Is there a word count limit for the abstract? If so, does it include the title and citations?
No. There is no limit to the amount of information post-able in a workshop abstract. Try to keep in mind that it is an abstract, not a literature review, and please DO NOT include a list of references.
