Call for Tutorials

IJCAI-19 invites proposals for the Tutorial Track. Tutorials will be held
on August 10-12, 2019, immediately prior to the technical conference.
Tutorial attendance is complimentary for all IJCAI-2019 conference

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 audiences 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 another interactive element.
Key Dates:

   - Proposal Submission Deadline: March 15, 2019 (Friday)
   - Acceptance Notification: April 5, 2019 (Friday)
   - Abstracts and Tutorial Websites Deadline: April 19, 2019 (Friday)

   - 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 IJCAI audience, and which of the above objectives
   are best served by the tutorial.
   - A brief resume of the presenter(s), which should include:
      - Name, postal address, phone number, e-mail address
      - Background in the tutorial area, including a list of

      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

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