The IC4S-2017 organizing committee invites proposals for tutorials to be held at Swissôtel Resort Phuket Patong Beach, Thailand during 14th-15th October 2017. Proposals are invited for pre-conference tutorials. Tutorials/workshops can be of half-day (3 hours with a half-hour break) or full-day duration (6 hours in two sessions with two half-hour break) on core techniques and areas of knowledge that enjoy broad interest within the Computer Communication & Technology Community. We are seeking tutorials on established or emerging research topics within the field itself, but we also welcome tutorials from related research fields or application areas provided they are of sufficient interest to the Computer and Communication Community.

Tutorials should provide participants with information and instruction on well-established or new cutting edge topics or tools, relevant to the conference tracks. Introductory to advanced tutorial sessions are welcome. They are intended to offer participants an opportunity to learn about new research or applications, to get an introduction to important established topics or tools, or to develop higher skill levels in areas in which they are already knowledgeable.

Tutorial participants will not be given tutorial Proceedings in a hardcopy format. Instead, organizers of the tutorials will make the Proceedings available on their web site prior to the conference/CDs writing the tutorials.

How to Propose a Tutorial

When proposing a tutorial, please use the following boldface text as the section headings in your proposal. The proposal should be 2-3 pages long (plus possibly extra materials).

Topic overview: What will the tutorial be about? Why do you believe this is an interesting and significant subject for the machine learning community at large?
Target audience: From which areas do you, expect potential participants to come? What prior knowledge, if any, do you expect from the audience? What will the participants learn? How many participants do you expect?
Content details: Provide a detailed outline of the topics to be presented, including estimates for the time that will be devoted to each subject. Aim for a total length of approximately three hours. If possible, provide samples of past tutorial slides or teaching materials. In case of multiple presenters, specify how you will distribute the work.
Format: How will you present the material? Will there be multimedia parts of the presentation? Do you plan software demonstrations? Specify any extraordinary technical equipment that you would need.
Organizers & presenters' expertise: Please include the name, e-mail address, and web page of all presenters. In addition, outline the presenters' background and include a list of publications in the tutorial area.
