Call for Tutorials
The ICML 2011 Organizing Committee invites proposals for tutorials to be held at the 28th International Conference on Machine Learning, on Tuesday, June 28, 2011 in Bellevue, Washington.
We seek proposals for half-day (3 hours, with a half-hour break) tutorials on core techniques and areas of knowledge that enjoy broad interest within the machine learning community. We are interested in tutorials on established or emerging research topics within the field itself, but we also welcome tutorials from related research fields or application areas provided they are of sufficient interest to the machine learning community. The ideal tutorial should attract a wide audience, it should be broad enough to provide a gentle introduction to the chosen research area, but it should also cover the most important contributions in depth. Proposals that exclusively focus on the presenters' own work or commercial presentations are not eligible. Tutorial participants will not be given tutorial proceedings in a hardcopy format. Instead, organizers of the tutorials will make the proceedings available on their website prior to the conference.
How to Propose a TutorialProposals should provide sufficient information to evaluate the quality and importance of the topic, the likely quality of the presentation materials, and the speakers' teaching ability. We encourage tutorials taught by more than one person because the added perspective of additional presenters can provide richer, more balanced coverage of an area. However, single person proposals are still welcome and will be considered equally in the evaluation process. When proposing a tutorial, please use the following boldface text as the section headings in your proposal. The proposal should be 2-3 pages long (plus possibly extra materials).
Tutorial proposals should be submitted via email in PDF format firstname.lastname@example.org. Soon after submission, proposers should expect to receive a verification of receipt.The timeline is as follows:
