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.
All deadlines are 11:59PM Anywhere on Earth (AoE)
