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 j.epps@unsw.edu.au by ***30 March, 2018*** .


PROPOSAL FORMAT AND SUBMISSION

Tutorial proposals should not exceed 3 pages, and should contain the following information:

  1. Title and abstract of the tutorial for inclusion on the SST 2018 website (200 words maximum).
  2. 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.
  3. Tutorial length. The tutorial can be full (up to 6 hours) or half day (3 hours).
  4. Name, email address, affiliation and brief biography of the tutorial instructor(s), indicating any previous relevant experience.

RESPONSIBILITIES
