Subject:        IJCAI-ECAI 2018 - Call for Tutorials (for posting on PlanetKR)

IJCAI-ECAI-18 invites proposals for the Tutorial Track. Tutorials will be held on
July 13-15, 2018, immediately prior to the technical conference. Tutorial attendance
is complimentary for all IJCAI-ECAI-18 conference registrants.

//// OBJECTIVES ////

Tutorials should serve one or more of the following objectives:
* Introduce novices to major topics within Artificial Intelligence.
* Introduce expert non-specialists to an AI subarea.
* Motivate and explain a topic of emerging importance for AI.
* Survey a mature area of AI research and/or practice.
* Provide instruction in established but specialized AI methodologies.
* Present a novel synthesis combining distinct lines of AI work.
* Introduce AI audiences to an external topic that can motivate or use AI research.
* Mentor AI researchers (particularly, junior researchers) on a broad AI-relevant
non-technical topic (examples could be AI jobs, or ethical issues in AI).

Tutorials are intended to cover reasonably well-established information in a balanced
way. Tutorials should not be used to advocate a single avenue of research, nor should
they promote a product. We encourage tutorials with a hands-on component or other
interactive element. We also welcome tutorials with explicit ties to IJCAI-ECAI-18’s
theme of the Evolution of the Contours of AI.

//// KEY DATES ////

* Proposal Submission Deadline: January 10, 2018
* Acceptance Notification: February 10, 2018
* Title, Abstract, and Speaker Biography Deadline: March 6, 2018

* A detailed, point-form outline of the tutorial.
* A brief characterization of the potential target audience for the tutorial, including

  * Name, postal address, phone number, e-mail address
