Call for Tutorial Proposals

The iiWAS2009 steering committee invites proposals for tutorials to be held in conjunction with the conference. The tutorials will be held on the first day of the conference, December 14, 2009, at the conference site. We are seeking proposals for tutorials of 2.5 to 3 hours in duration.

The goal of a tutorial at the conference is to provide a road map (for beginners or advanced attendees) about a subject area so that attendees can then pursue work in that area if they are so inclined. The emphasis of the tutorial is more on breadth rather than depth. The topic areas should be in line with the theme of the conference. The topic list of iiWAS2009 can be found from the conference web page (here).
