############################################################
European Conference on Machine Learning and Principles and Practice of
Knowledge Discovery in Databases (ECML-PKDD)
Skopje, Macedonia, September 18-22, 2017 (http://www.ecmlpkdd2017.org).
############################################################

The ECML-PKDD 2017 Organizing Committee invites proposals for half-day
tutorials to be held on the first and last days of the conference
(September 18 and 22, 2017), which will take place in Skopje, Macedonia.
Tutorials are intended to provide a comprehensive introduction to
established or emerging research topics of interest for the machine
learning and the data mining community. These topics include related
research fields or applications but also well-developed tools and suites
that support ML/DM research. The ideal tutorial should attract a wide
audience. It should be broad enough to provide a basic introduction to the
chosen area, but it should also cover the most important topics in depth.
Each tutorial should be well-focused so that its content can be covered in
a half-day slot. Proposals that exclusively focus on the presenter’s own
work or commercial demonstrations are strongly discouraged.
Tutorial slides will be made available online at the ECML-PKDD website,
although authors can provide them on additional websites as well. Depending
on the budget, we expect to offer a waived registration fee for attendance
on the workshop day to one speaker of each accepted tutorial (i.e., no
guarantee).
Guidelines for proposals
Tutorial proposals should contain at least the following:
● A title and an abstract of the tutorial.
● A brief description of the tutorial content and its relevance to the
ECML-PKDD community (no more than 2 pages).
● A brief outline of the tutorial structure showing that the tutorial’s
core content can be covered in a 4 hours slot (including a 30 minutes
break).
● The names and contact information of the tutorial instructors, including
one-paragraph statements of their research interests and areas of
expertise; it is required to indicate in the proposal who is planning to
attend the conference and present which part.
● A list of previous venues and approximate audience sizes, if the same or
a similar tutorial has been given elsewhere; otherwise an estimate of the
audience size.
● A description of special requirements for technical equipment (e.g.,
audio equipment).
Combined Tutorial & Workshop
Especially for a relatively novel but rapidly maturing topic, a half day
tutorial (4h incl. one 30 minute break) followed by a half day workshop (4h
incl. one 30 minute break) could be a good format. We kindly ask you to
write a single proposal for the tutorial and workshop that covers the
different guidelines and requirements for tutorials and workshops. In
addition, the links should be clearly described and the proposal should be
submitted to the workshop and tutorial chairs (select both 'Workshop' and
'Tutorial' as topics). For workshop guidelines, please see the separate
Call For Workshop Proposals.
Proposal reviewing process
The proposal will be reviewed by the workshop and tutorial co-chairs, who
may use the help of external reviewers, and experts on the submission
topics.
The features that will be evaluated are:
● The interestingness for the ECML-PKDD areas, which should result in a
large audience.
● The clarity of the tutorial, which should emerge from its description.
● Good organization as appearing from the outline.
● The adequacy of the speakers, i.e., her/his background/experience in
teaching the target topics.
● The ability to explain the topics to a large audience with heterogeneous
background.
Submission
Please submit your tutorial proposals in PDF format using EasyChair.
The submitted proposals will be reviewed in a close collaboration with the
conference chairs and the program committee.

The following deadlines are important for the tutorial organizers:
● Tutorial proposal deadline Monday, April 17, 2017
● Tutorial acceptance notification Monday, May 1, 2017
● Tutorial final abstract submission Monday, May 15, 2017
