Call for TUTORIAL Proposals

The Call for Tutorial Proposals for ICTERI 2016 is CLOSED

Besides the main technical programme, ICTERI 2016 will host a number of tutorials on topics related to the general theme of the conference. The role of the tutorial is to provide a theme focused review, platform for a more intensive scientific exchange among attendees interested in a deeper look into a particular topic, and meeting point for the community.

We call for short Tutorial Proposals which contribute to the enrichment of the ICTERI Track topics:

  • Track 1 - Advances in ICT Research
  • Track 2 - Information Systems: Technology and Applications
  • Track 3 - Academia/Industry ICT Cooperation
  • Track 4 - ICT in Education

  • Sunday, 29.05.2016 – registration deadline

Tutorial Proposals: Scope and Structure

The role of an ICTERI tutorial is to be a theme-oriented comprehensive review. A tutorial may:

  • Discuss novel ICT techniques or trends in the field
  • Center around successful and timely application of ICT in important application areas or industries
  • Provide a seed platform for a more intensive scientific exchange among researchers and students interested in a particular topic and a meeting point for the community

Duration

ICTERI solicits short tutorials with the duration of up to 90 minutes. However, the proposals of a half day or full day tutorial will also be reviewed. If a long tutorial is accepted it will be scheduled on a day before or after the main conference.

Relevance and Focus

To be attractive to the potential audience tutorials should address topics that satisfy the following criteria:

  • The topic fits to the general scope of ICTERI 2016
  • There is a clear focus on a specific theme, technology, problem, and application
  • There is a sufficiently large audience interested in the topic

Required Information

In addition to the explanation of its relevance and focus, a proposal should comprise the following:

  • Basic information:
    • Title
    • Abstract, not longer than 200 words, briefly describing the tutorial. For accepted tutorials, the abstracts will be published on the ICTERI 2016 website.
    • Name and contact information for each tutor
    • Duration of the proposed tutorial. If the intended tutorial is planned to take longer than 90 minutes a rationale needs to be given.
  • Information about the previous appearances of the tutorial. Please also explain how the proposed material differs from the tutorials given previously.
  • Audience: Organizers should design tutorials for approximately 20-40 participants to balance impact and effective discussion. Proposals must clearly identify the intended audience for the tutorial (e.g., novice, intermediate, expert) by answering the following questions:
    • What background will be required of the audience?
    • Why is the topic important/interesting to the ICT community in broad and the focal community in particular?
    • What is the benefit to participants? What are their learning objectives?
    • Provide some informal evidence that people would attend (e.g., related workshops)
  • Coverage: Enough material should be included to provide a sense of both the scope of material to be covered and the depth to which it will be covered. The more details that can be provided, the better (up to and including links to the actual slides or viewgraphs). Note that it is not required that the tutors focus mainly on their own research results. If, for certain parts of the tutorial, the material comes directly from the tutors' own research or product, please indicate this clearly in the proposal.
  • Bios: Please provide brief biographical information on each tutor including qualifications with respect to the tutorial's topic, and also previous training and speaking experience (such as teaching and tutorial presentation)
  • Special equipment (if any): Please indicate any additional equipment (if needed). The standard equipment includes an overhead projector and a single projection screen.

Responsibilities

The organizers of accepted tutorials are responsible for:

  • Preparing and maintaining a web site that describes the tutorial and includes all relevant information
  • Submitting the material for attendees (slide sets, additional teaching material, software installation and usage guides for practical hands-on sessions, etc.) to the Tutorial Chairs

The Tutorial Chairs and Local Organizing Committee of ICTERI 2016 are responsible for:

  • Providing publicity for the tutorials as part of the conference publicity activities
  • On-site logistical support to the organizers and attendees

Proposal Submission Guidelines

The language of the main ICTERI Conference is English. Tutorial proposals submitted in any other language will be rejected without review.

Submissions should be made electronically in PDF or DOC/DOCX (MS/Open Word) format. The authors should use the ICTERI electronic submission system at https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=icteri2016 and submit their papers to the ICTERI 2016 Tutorial Proposals Track.

When preparing your submission please be advised to consult the evaluation criteria for discussion, survey, or problem analysis papers. Please also check the Annotation and Formating instructions.

Publication of Tutorial Papers

The organizers of the accepted tutorials are also encouraged to provide their extended abstract or paper describing the tutorial for the publication in the ICTERI 2016 conference proceedings. This paper will be considered as accepted, however it will be reviewed by the Tutorial Chairs and the recommendations for the camera ready copy will be provided. When preparing your submission please be advised to consult the evaluation criteria for discussion, survey, or problem analysis papers at http://www.icteri.org/icteri-2016-submission-types-and-evaluation-criteria.

Tutorial papers will therefore appear in the proceedings volume of ICTERI 2016 published at CEUR-WS.org if the tutorial organizers wish to have it published.

The best tutorial papers may be selected by the ICTERI steering committee and invited to be revised and extended for the ICTERI post-proceedings volume. The post-proceedings of ICTERI are traditionally published by Springer Communications in Computer and Information Science (CCIS) series.

Additionally the abstracts of all accepted tutorial papers will be published in the Conference Volume of Abstracts, with ISBN, by a local Ukrainian publisher.

Yet in addition to the traditional publication channels, ICTERI 2016 offers on-line publication of the abstracts and presentations of the accepted tutorials on the ICTERI Wiki (http://isrg.kit.znu.edu.ua/icteriwiki/)
