IJCAI-2017 Call for Tutorials
IJCAI-17 invites proposals for the Tutorial Track. Tutorials will be held on August 19-21, immediately prior to the technical conference. Tutorial attendance is complimentary for all IJCAI-17 conference registrants.
Tutorials should serve one or more of the following objectives:
- Introduce novices to major topics within Artificial Intelligence.
- Introduce expert non-specialists to an AI subarea.
- Motivate and explain a topic of emerging importance for AI.
- Survey a mature area of AI research and/or practice.
- Provide instruction in established but specialized AI methodologies.
- Present a novel synthesis combining distinct lines of AI work.
- Introduce AI audience to an external topic that can motivate or use AI research.
- Mentor AI researchers (particularly, junior researchers) on a broad AI-relevant non-technical topic (examples could be AI jobs, or ethical issues in AI).
Tutorials are intended to cover reasonably well-established information in a balanced way. Tutorials should not be used to advocate a single avenue of research, nor should they promote a product. We encourage tutorials with a hands-on component or other interactive element. We also welcome tutorials with explicit ties to IJCAI-2017's theme of AI and Autonomy.
