Call for TUTORIAL Proposals

Besides the main technical programme, ICTERI plans hosting a small number of short tutorials (90 min) on the topics related to the general theme of the conference. The role of an ICTERI tutorial is to be a theme-oriented comprehensive survey. 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 amongst researchers and students interested in a particular topic and as a meeting point for the community

Tutorials are open to all conference attendees without any extra fees.

Proposals should include the following:

  • Basic information: Title, brief description, name and contact information for each tutor, length of the proposed tutorial. If the intended tutorial is expected to take longer than 90 minutes a rationale is expected. Also identify any other venues in which the tutorial has been or will be presented.
  • Audience: Proposals must clearly identify the intended audience for the tutorial (e.g., novice, intermediate, expert).
    -- What background will be required of the audience?
    -- Why is this topic important/interesting to the ICT community in broad and the focal community in particular?
    -- What is the benefit to participants?
    -- 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 the tutors should not 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: Provide brief biographical information on each tutor (including qualifications with respect to the tutorial's topic).
  • Special equipment (if any): Please indicate any additional equipment needed (if any). The standard equipment includes an overhead projector, a single projection screen and microphones.

In addition to submitting the proposal it is required that the tutorial abstract of maximum 4 pages in length (Springer LNCS stylesheet) is submitted in PDF. The extended abstract should include an outline of the tutorial along with descriptions of the course objectives and course materials. Reference to available material and online video samples are encouraged.

The abstracts of the accepted Tutorials will be published in the international proceedings volume of ICTERI 2012. The language of a Tutorial Proposal and its abstract is English.


Please submit your tutorial proposal by e-mail to the ICTERI Tutorial chair Grygoriy Zholtkevych (e-mail: g [dot] zholtkevych [at] gmail [dot] com).
