First Call for Tutorials

ECAI 2023 invites submissions for tutorial proposals. Tutorials will be held immediately prior to the technical conference.
 
Format:
 
ECAI 2023 hosts two kinds of tutorials: a) “standard” half­-day tutorials; b) 90-minute “spotlight” tutorials. Spotlight tutorials are meant to address emerging areas, techniques, methodologies and perspectives in AI or specialized topics. Standard tutorials are meant to cover rather established areas of AI such as (but not exclusively) Machine Learning, Knowledge Representation and Reasoning, Computer Vision, Semantic Web, Natural Language Processing, Multi-Agent Systems, Robotics, Games, as well as topics in the overlap of such research areas.
 
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 audience 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 elements. Also we welcome tutorials on topical subjects, particularly those with social or industrial implications, such as privacy, security, fairness or ethics in AI.  ECAI 2023 grants one free registration per tutorial.

Submission Instructions:
 
Tutorial proposals should be submitted as an e-mail to tutorials-chairs@ecai2023.eu
 
Proposals must be submitted as a single PDF file containing the following information:
 
  • A two-sentence description of the tutorial, suitable for inclusion in the conference registration brochure.
  • A two-paragraph description of the tutorial, suitable for a web page overview.
  • Proposed format of the tutorial: standard (half-day) or spotlight (90-minute)
  • A detailed, point-form outline of the tutorial.
  • A brief characterization of the potential target audience for the tutorial, including prerequisite knowledge.
  • A brief description of why the tutorial topic would be of interest to a substantial part of the ECAI audience, and which of the above objectives are best served by the tutorial.
  • A brief resume of the presenter(s), which should include:
    • Name, affiliation, e-mail address
    • Background in the tutorial area, including a list of publications/presentations
    • Citation to an available example of work in the area (ideally, a published tutorial-level article or presentation materials on the subject)
    • Evidence of teaching experience (courses taught or references)
    • Evidence of scholarship in AI or Computer Science
Policy on multiple submissions

 
We encourage proposals of brand-new tutorials, as well as tutorials that have already been successfully offered before, or that are also being proposed to other venues (e.g., other major AI conferences). In that case, the application should include a complete list of such venues.

Any questions about the tutorial program should be directed to the tutorial chairs:
