Call for Tutorials

We solicit proposals for tutorials for presentation at the EDBT/ICDT 2018 joint conference in Vienna.

Proposals must provide an in-depth survey of the chosen area with the option of describing some particular pieces of work in detail. A meaningful summary of open issues in the area is a definite plus. While depth in research is important, the topic should be sufficiently broad to attract a significant portion of the audience. Proposals must be no more than four pages, in the ACM double-column format used for EDBT/ICDT submissions, and must include enough details to provide a sense of both the scope of material to be covered and the depth to which it will be covered. Proposals should also indicate the tutorial length (typically, 1.5 or 3 hours; if the tutorial can be of either length, please be sure to identify which material is included for each case).

Proposals should also identify any other venues in which all or part of the tutorial has been or will be presented, and explain how the current proposal differs from those other editions of the tutorial. Tutorial proposals must clearly identify the intended audience and any prerequisite knowledge for attendees.

Finally, proposals should include a brief (no more than 3-5 sentences) professional biography of the presenter(s).
