Call for Tutorials

EICS'2021 invites proposals for tutorials on interactive systems engineering. Tutorials are intended to provide a broad overview of a topic beyond a regular paper presentation, inform and train the participants in new or interesting approaches of interactive systems engineering, or expand on new techniques, methods and processes that improve how complex interactive systems can be build.

Potential presenters should keep in mind that there may be quite a varied audience, including PhD students, seasoned practitioners, and specialised researchers. Each tutorial proposal will be evaluated on its anticipated benefit for prospective participants and its fit within the tutorial program as a whole. Other factors to be considered include relevance to practice and to research, timeliness, importance, and audience appeal, as well as past experience and qualifications of the instructors.

We want to stimulate and support the creation of reusable course materials, and provide a platform for presenters to distribute their instructional content, whilst providing participants and others a mean to cite and refer to this work. Given the current circumstances, we will need to be able to switch to online tutorial sessions for which we will also provide additional support. Future tutorial presenters should take this in consideration. We will announce more on this initiative soon.

Tutorial submissions

We will assign slots of minimum 1 to maximum 2 hours for tutorials. If more time is needed tutorial presenters can include motivation for a longer tutorial.

The proposal should include a description (maximum two pages of text and figures) of the proposed tutorial, accompanied by additional information on the proposers’ background and accompanied by some sample content that you would present if your tutorial were accepted (to be submitted in a separate PDF file). The description should contain the following information:

  • Title and abstract: Propose a title and an abstract that allows conference attendees to quickly and accurately understand the subject matter of the tutorial.
  • Aim and objectives: The overall aim of the tutorial and the concrete objectives to be achieved. Explain why your topic is important to the EICS community and what you hope the participants will learn by attending your tutorial.
  • Intended target audience: level (basic or advanced), and possible prerequisites.
  • Basic structure: describe the planned structure of your proposed tutorial (e.g. sequence if subtopics discussed during the tutorial).
  • Operational requirements: Please specify any requirements for your presentation apart from a PC projector (e.g., overhead transparency projector, audio equipment).
  • References: Please provide references to papers, books, etc. that your tutorial builds on.
