Tutorial Proposal Formatting Instructions

We solicit proposals for tutorials for presentation at the conference. Tutorial proposals must clearly identify the intended audience and any prerequisite knowledge for attendees. Proposals must be no more than five pages, using the same submission format as for the research submissions, and must include enough material to provide a sense of both the scope of material to be covered and the depth to which it will be covered. Proposals should also indicate the tutorial length (typically 1.5 or 3 hours; if the tutorial can be of either length then please identify which material is included for each length). Proposals should also identify any other venues in which all or part of the tutorial has been or will be presented, and explain how the current proposal differs from those other editions of the tutorial. Proposals should include a brief (no more than 3 sentences) professional biography.

Please submit proposals electronically (PDF format) to David DeWitt by November 29, 2005 9pm Pacific Time.
