UAI 2016 - Call for Tutorials

The UAI 2015 Organizing Committee invites proposals for tutorials. The tutorials will be held at the 32st Conference on Uncertainty in Artificial Intelligence, on Saturday June 25, 2016 in Jersey City, New York City area.

We seek proposals for tutorials on core areas that enjoy broad interest within the UAI community. We are interested in tutorials on established as well as emerging research topics within the field itself, but we also welcome tutorials from related research fields or application areas (e.g., computer vision, natural language processing, etc.).

    How to Propose a Tutorial

    Proposals are expected to have an overall length of 2 to 3 pages. They should provide sufficient information to evaluate the quality and importance of the topic, the likely quality of the presentation materials, and the speakers' teaching ability. Tutorials may be taught by more than one person to provide a richer, more balanced coverage of an area.

    When proposing a tutorial, please include the following sections:

    1. Topic overview -- What will the tutorial be about? Why do you believe this is an interesting and significant subject for the UAI community?
    2. 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?
    3. Tutorial length -- previous years, tutorials were limited to a total length of two hours. If you would like to spend more (or less) time than this, please indicate and motivate your preferred tutorial length.
    4. Content details -- Provide a detailed outline of the topics to be presented, including estimates for the time that will be devoted to each subject. If possible, provide samples of past tutorial slides or teaching materials. In case of multiple presenters, specify how you will distribute the work.
    5. 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.
    6. Organizers and presenters' expertise -- Please include the name, e-mail address, and webpage of all presenters. In addition, outline the presenters' background and include a list of publications in the tutorial area.

    Tutorial proposals should be submitted by March 23, 2016:
