Call for Tutorials

ICDE 2010 invites submissions for tutorial proposals on all topics covered by the conference.  The conference will host one- and two-session tutorials, lasting 1.5 and 3 hours, respectively.

Submission Guidelines

Tutorial proposals must include an abstract, an outline, a description of the target audience, a preferred duration (1.5 or 3 hours), and a short biography of the presenters.  Proposals should be, roughly, two- to four-pages long and should include enough information to provide a clear sense of the proposed scope and depth of coverage of the targeted topics.  If a proposed tutorial has been presented elsewhere, the proposal should indicate the venue, number of attendees, and a pointer to the slides of the earlier presentation(s), and specify what, if anything, would be different at ICDE 2010.

Tutorial proposals should be submitted via email to [email protected] by June 26, 2009.  The notification date for the outcome of the selection process by the Tutorial Co-Chairs is September 9, 2009.  The slides of accepted tutorials will be made available to the ICDE 2010 participants; the deadline for the final version of the slides of accepted tutorials is January 25, 2010.
