TUTORIALS AT THE 13TH INTERNATIONAL AAAI CONFERENCE ON WEB AND SOCIAL MEDIA


  *

    Submission Deadline: February 1, 2019

    Proposal Submission Email: tutorials at icwsm.org

    Notification of acceptance: February 15, 2019

The ICWSM-19 Committee invites proposals for Tutorials Day at the 13th 
International AAAI Conference on Weblogs and Social Media (ICWSM-19). 
Tutorials will be held on June 11, 2019 in Munich, Germany.

ICWSM-19 is seeking proposals for advanced tutorials on topics related 
to the analysis and understanding of social phenomena, particularly as 
seen on social media. We are looking for contributions from experts in 
both the social and computational sciences. The tutorials will be an 
opportunity for cross-disciplinary engagement and a deeper understanding 
of new or existing tools, techniques, and research methodologies. Each 
tutorial should provide either an in depth look at emerging techniques 
or a broad overview of an important direction in the field. For previous 
year tutorial examples, visit the 2017 tutorial page 
<https://www.icwsm.org/2017/program/tutorial/>and 2018 tutorial page 
<https://www.icwsm.org/2018/program/tutorial/>.

*PROPOSAL CONTENT AND FORMAT*

*

  * Tutorial title and summary. A short description (300 words) of the
    main objective of the tutorial to be published on the main ICWSM
    website.
  * Names, affiliations, emails, and personal websites of the tutorial
    organizers. A main contact author should be specified. A typical
    proposal should include no more than four co-organizers.
  * Duration. A typical tutorial would fit in a half-day format, but
    depending on the type of activities proposed we may accept also
    shorter (not less than 2 hours) or longer (not more than a full-day
    schedule) tutorials. The Tutorial Chairs might conditionally accept
    a proposal and suggest a different duration to best fit the
    organization of the whole event.
  * Tutorial schedule and activities. A description of the proposed
    tutorial format, a schedule of the proposed activities (e.g.,
    presentations, interactive sessions) along with a *detailed*
    description for each of them.
  * Target audience, prerequisites and outcomes. A description of the
    target audience, the prerequisite skill set for the attendee as well
    as a brief list of goals for the tutors to accomplish by the end of
    the tutorial.
  * Expected number of attendees. This is orientative, and required for
    logistics planning.
  * Tutorial website and available materials. The organizers of accepted
    tutorials will be required to set up a web page containing all the
    information for the tutorial attendees before the tutorial day
    (roughly 10 days before). The proposal should contain the list of
    materials that will be made available on the website.
  * Precedent [when available]: A list of other tutorials held
    previously at related conferences, if any, together with a brief
    statement on how it follows-up on previous events. If the authors of
    the proposal have organized other tutorials in the past, pointers to
    the relevant material (e.g., slides, videos, web pages, code) should
    be provided.
  * Special requirements [when needed]: A list of equipment and that
    needs to be made available by conference organizers (other than
    wifi, a projector, and a regular workshop room setup).
  * All submissions must be sent as PDF files to the submission email
    (tutorials at icwsm.org). Pre-submission questions can be sent to the
    chair at the same address (tutorials at icwsm.org).
