We invite proposals for tutorials during the main conference program or on the pre-conference day. Tutorials typically fit a 1,5 hour block, but longer durations might be possible.
Tutorials are didactic with explicit learning intention and outcome that focus on a contained topic, facilitated by one or more experts. They are an opportunity for a deep dive into a method or procedure, or a chance to gain experience with new tools and standards.
Proposers are free to decide how to structure tutorials. However, some hands-on learning, and more generally tutorials offering practical outcomes are preferred. They can include time for group discussion of the content covered. By the end of the tutorial, participants should be inspired and equipped to deploy their new skills.
An abstract of up to 2 pages describing the proposed content and interactivity of the tutorial is required. The abstract of the tutorial will be published in the proceedings and there will be an option for tutorial proposers/facilitators to submit a short report for the proceedings, depending on ability of reviewers and contributors to meet the deadline. Tutorials will be peer reviewed by at least three reviewers.
Contributions for tutorials are due by 17 March 2024
Template: authors must fill out the form in Indico.
Tutorial facilitators and moderators should be identified and included as co-authors and presenters.
You should include a clear outline of who you want to invite to take part, what prior knowledge you expect and what participants can expect from the process.
You should explain if you need more than a 1,5 hour block. A small number of longer blocks might be available on the pre-conference day.
Submitters will be responsible for facilitating the tutorial on-site. You should clearly indicate if you intend to allow remote participation and how you intend to set this up. The conference may not be able to fully support your wishes and submitters should be open to work with conference organizers to organize a hybrid tutorial experience.
We kicked off the submissions with a webinar on Jan 11th. You can watch it here and ask your questions in our online drop-in sessions.
