UAI 2017 - Call for Tutorials

The UAI 2017 Organizing Committee invites proposals for tutorials. The tutorials will be held at the 33rd Conference on Uncertainty in Artificial Intelligence, on Friday August 11, 2017 in Sydney, Australia.

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.).

Important dates

  • Friday, March 31st, 2017: Tutorial proposals due.
  • Friday, May 5th, 2017: Acceptance notification.
  • Friday, August 11th, 2017: Tutorials date.
Note: Times and dates are in universal time (UTC). The CMT system has times that are in PDT but 4:59pm PDT is 11:59pm UTC Click here for a converter.

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 -- in 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 31st, 2017:
