Call For Tutorials

We are soliciting proposals for 4-hour tutorials. The tutorial contents can be selected from a wide range of topics, from processes and methods to practical techniques and guidelines. We encourage tutorials that reflect the conference theme and provide clear utility to conference participants. We particularly welcome tutorials on engineering distributed, adaptive, data-intensive systems.

All tutorials should indicate the intended audience and give an idea of prior knowledge expected.



Tutorial proposals must not exceed 6 pages and must conform to this template. They must be submitted in PDF  through the main conference Submission site. Select “Create a new Paper Submission” then “Tutorial Proposal Submission”. The deadline for tutorial proposal submission is June 5, 2013 July 1, 2013.


Review and Evaluation Criteria

The program chairs will review each proposal and will select quality proposals that fit the following evaluation criteria: relevance, timeliness, importance, audience appeal, suitability for presentation in a 4-hour format, and qualifications of the presenters.



Upon notification of acceptance, all authors of accepted tutorials will be asked to sign a contract with the SEDE organizing committee regulating their duties and the rules of reimbursement.
