Call for Tutorials

The HAICTA 2011 Programm Committee invites proposals for tutorials to be held in conjunction with the conference. Tutorials are an effective way to educate and/or provide the necessary background to the intended audience enabling them to understand technical and scientific advances.

For HAICTA 2011, we are seeking proposals for tutorials on all topics related to the conference. A tutorial may be a theme-oriented comprehensive survey, discuss novel techniques or may center around successful and timely application areas.

Tutorials will be open to all conference attendees with a small extra fee. The typical tutorial will be 2 hrs long (longer tutorials will be also considered).

Proposals should be submitted electronically by March 31, 2011 to:

Dr. Michail Salampasis
Associate professor
Alexander TEI of Thessaloniki
Deparment of Informatics
57400, Thessaloniki, Greece

in PDF format (for other formats please contact the program chair first). Proposals should include the following:

Basic information: Title, brief description, name and contact information for each tutor, length of the proposed tutorial. If the intended tutorial is expected to take longer than 2 hours a rationale is expected. Also identify any other venues in which the tutorial has been or will be presented.

Audience: Proposals must clearly identify the intended audience for the tutorial (e.g., novice, intermediate, expert).  What background will be required of the audience?  What is the benefit to participants?  Provide some informal evidence that people would attend (e.g., related workshops).

Coverage: Enough material should be included to provide a sense of both the scope of material to be covered and the depth to which it will be covered. The more details that can be provided, the better (up to and including links to the actual slides or viewgraphs). Note that the tutors should not focus mainly on their own research results. If, for certain parts of the tutorial, the material comes directly from the tutors' own research or product, please indicate this clearly in the proposal.

Bios: Provide brief biographical information on each tutor (including qualifications with respect to the tutorial's topic).

Special equipment (if any): Please indicate any additional equipment needed (if any). The standard equipment includes an LCD projector, an overhead projector, a single projection screen.

All Tutorials will run on Thursday 8th September
The programme will be announced here when it is ready.
