Please consider submitting a tutorial to this year's IJCAI-ECAI conference.
There is still a week before the deadline, and the application is not too complex (details below).
IJCAI-ECAI-2018 CALL FOR TUTORIALS
IJCAI-ECAI-18 invites proposals for the Tutorial Track. Tutorials will be held on
July 13-15, 2018, immediately prior to the technical conference. Tutorial attendance
is complimentary for all IJCAI-ECAI-18 conference registrants.
//// OBJECTIVES ////
Tutorials should serve one or more of the following objectives:
* Introduce novices to major topics within Artificial Intelligence.
* Introduce expert non-specialists to an AI subarea.
* Motivate and explain a topic of emerging importance for AI.
* Survey a mature area of AI research and/or practice.
* Provide instruction in established but specialized AI methodologies.
* Present a novel synthesis combining distinct lines of AI work.
* Introduce AI audiences to an external topic that can motivate or use AI research.
* Mentor AI researchers (particularly, junior researchers) on a broad AI-relevant
non-technical topic (examples could be AI jobs, or ethical issues in AI).
Tutorials are intended to cover reasonably well-established information in a balanced
way. Tutorials should not be used to advocate a single avenue of research, nor should
they promote a product. We encourage tutorials with a hands-on component or other
interactive element. We also welcome tutorials with explicit ties to IJCAI-ECAI-18’s
theme of the Evolution of the Contours of AI.
