Call for Tutorial Proposals

We solicit proposals for tutorials for the ICOODB 2009 conference. Tutorials must provide an in-depth survey of a well-defined topic with the option of describing a particular technology or system in detail. We would also encourage presenters to provide a summary of open issues.

Proposals for tutorials should be a maximum of 5 pages (typicaly using 11pt font and single column format). Sufficient details should be provided to allow the evaluators to determine the scope and depth of the material to be covered. It should also indicate the structure of the tutorial in terms of how the time of 3 hours will be allocated to the material. While it is not required that tutorials be original, the proposers should also include information about other events where they have presented all or part of the material and explain how this tutorial will differ. Tutorial proposals must also clearly identify the target audience and any prerequisite knowledge for attendees. A brief professional biography (no more than 3 sentences) should also be provided.

The deadline for submissions is March 31, 2009. Proposals should be submitted through the online submission system.
