Call for Tutorials
SST 2018 is pleased to invite proposals for tutorials to be given in conjunction with the conference. Tutorials are intensive instructional sessions that provide a comprehensive introduction to established or emerging research topics of interest to the SST community.
The ideal tutorial should be broad enough to provide a basic introduction to the chosen area, but it should also cover some important topics in depth. Proposals should be submitted to email@example.com by ***30 March, 2018*** .
PROPOSAL FORMAT AND SUBMISSION
Tutorial proposals should not exceed 3 pages, and should contain the following information:
- Title and abstract of the tutorial for inclusion on the SST 2018 website (200 words maximum).
- Tutorial description:
- learning objectives of the tutorial and relevance to SST 2018;
- a brief outline of the tutorial structure;
- targeted audience (introductory, intermediate, advanced) and prerequisite knowledge or skills;
- list any special apparatus or infrastructure that will be used and how this can be provided.
Organizers of accepted tutorials are responsible for preparing the materials for attendees.
The SST 2018 Organizing Committee will provide publicity for the tutorials as part of the conference publicity activities, and some on-site logistical support to the organizers and attendees. Note that the tutorial day is expected to be December 4th, and the location will be the UNSW Kensington campus.
All proposals will be reviewed by the conference chairs, according to:
- ability of the tutorial to contribute to strengthening the foundations of SST-related research;
- clarity of the tutorial, which should emerge from its description;
- good structure/organisation;
- background/experience of tutorial instructor(s) in teaching the target topics.
