RuleML+RR 2017: Call for Tutorials

January 13, 2017 8:20 PM
Tutorials may introduce novices to major topics in the area, introduce experts to a special subarea, motivate and explain a topic of emerging importance, survey a mature area of research and/or practice, present a novel synthesis combining distinct lines of work, introduce the audience to an external topic that can relate to research in the area on a relevant topic.

Tutorial attendance is complimentary for all RuleML+RR 2017 conference registrants.


Tutorial proposals should be submitted via Easychair:

Each submission (up to two pages) should include the following information:

  • A title.
  • An abstract.
  • The preferred duration (up to half-day).
  • A description that outlines which topics would be covered, and the depth to which they would be covered. If different length options are possible, the proposal should identify which parts would be included for each length.
  • A short description of the intended audience and any prerequisite knowledge for attendees.
  • A brief biography of the proposed presenter(s), along with contact information.
  • If (part of) the tutorial material or an earlier version of it has been presented elsewhere, the proposal should indicate those respective events (and dates), and describe how the current proposal differs from the previous ones.

A two-page extended abstract of the tutorial will be included in the conference proceedings. Tutorial slides are expected to be made available online to conference participants.
