ECIR call for tutorial proposals

Proposals due: September 15, 2017

ECIR 2018 solicits proposals for tutorials of either half-day (3 hours plus breaks) or full day (6 hours plus breaks) duration. The goal of the tutorials is to offer the community a stimulating and informative selection of tutorials reflecting current topics in information retrieval and related areas.

They may alos focus on specific problems or specific domains in which information retrieval research is applied.

A tutorial proposal should include the following:

  • Title of the tutorial;
  • Instructor(s) and their credentials (brief CVs);
  • Aims and learning objectives;
  • Scope of the tutorial and its relevance to the information retrieval community;
  • Tutorial history (previous offerings of tutorial, if any);
  • Format of the tutorial (1/2 day or 1 day);
  • Full description (up to two pages to be used in the reviewing process);
  • Target audience (introductory, intermediate, advanced) and expected prerequisite knowledge of the audience;
  • Citations to publications covered by the tutorial.

Tutorial proposals must be written in English and should be submitted in PDF formatĀ through the conference submission system.
The submissions will be reviewed by senior members of the information retrieval research community. Presenters of accepted tutorials will be invited to submit a brief description of the tutorial for inclusion in the ECIR conference proceedings.
