[CAiSE 2014] – Call for Tutorial Proposals

*26th International Conference on Advanced Information Systems Engineering

*CAiSE'2014, 16-20 June 2014, Thessaloniki, Greece*

CAiSE'14 invites proposals for tutorials in technical areas of Information
Systems engineering. These mini-tutorials will be 90 minutes long and
should aim at offering new insights, knowledge, and skills to managers,
teachers, researchers, and students seeking to gain a better understanding
of the state-of-the-art in Information Systems engineering. They are a good
way to get a broad overview of multiple topics in a single day.

Tutorials are intended to provide independent instruction on a topic of
relevance. Therefore, no commercial or sales-oriented presentations will be
accepted. Potential presenters should keep in mind that there may be quite
a varied audience, including novice graduate students, seasoned
practitioners, and specialized researchers. Tutorial speakers should be
prepared to cope with this diversity.

Tutorials will be organized in parallel with the technical sessions of the
main conference and participants of the conference will have free access to
all them.

Tutorial proposals should be submitted to both Tutorial Chairs. Prior
contact with the tutorial chairs is encouraged. The tutorial committee will
review each proposal and will select quality proposals that fit the
criteria mentioned above. Each tutorial proposal will be evaluated on its
anticipated benefit for prospective participants and its fit within the
tutorial program as a whole. Factors to be considered also include:
relevance, timeliness, importance, and audience appeal; effectiveness of
teaching methods; and past experience and qualifications of the instructors.
