Tutorials

IEEE ICDE 2021 CALL FOR TUTORIALS

We solicit proposals for tutorial presentations of general interest to the database research community and application developers. All topics relevant to the conference will be considered, but preference will be given to proposals that address an emerging research area and emphasize open research questions. Proposals must provide an in-depth and contemporary survey of the chosen area, covering a broad corpus of the related literature – in particular, while presenters have the option of describing exemplar pieces of work in detail, they should not focus exclusively on their own contributions.

Proposals should indicate the tutorial length – 1.5 or 3 hours; if the tutorial can be of either length, the material included for each case should be clearly identified. Further, the proposal should identify any prior venues in which all or part of the tutorial has been presented, and explain how the current proposal differs from these previous editions. Finally, tutorial proposals must clearly identify the intended audience, prerequisite knowledge expected from the attendees, and the expected benefits to the participants.

SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

Tutorial proposals should be submitted through the submission site (choose the Tutorial track). Submissions should be at most 4 (four) pages including references with the same format (IEEE format) as the conference research papers. Each submission should mandatorily include the following information:

  • Tutorial Title
  • Tutorial Presenters: (name, affiliation, email, address, phone, short bio highlighting expertise in tutorial domain)
  • Length: 1.5 or 3 hours; if you propose both 1.5 and 3 hours, please specify which parts would be added/removed.
  • Abstract: (up to 200 words)
  • Outline: Detailing the scope and depth of coverage of the targeted topics. If available, providing a URL to the slides will aid in the proposal evaluation.
  • Hands-on Tutorial: Indicate whether the tutorial will be hands-on, operating system/software/tools required and equipment attendees should bring.
  • Target Audience: Intended audience, pre-requisites, relevance to ICDE, and expected benefits.
  • Prior Offerings: If some part of the tutorial has been presented elsewhere, enumerate those events with dates and locations and provide URLs of the associated slides/notes. Further, highlight how the current proposal differs from these previous offerings.
  • References: A list of the primary references that will be covered in the tutorial.
