Call for Tutorials

UMAP 2015 is pleased to invite proposals for tutorials to be held in conjunction with the conference. Tutorials offer the community an opportunity to learn about the state-of-the-art concepts and techniques and allow the presenters to share their expertise. 
We invite proposals for tutorials from active researchers and experienced presenters. Ideally, a tutorial will cover the state-of-the-art research and development in a specific area strongly related to UMAP.

Tutorials on:
  • Interdisciplinary areas,
  • Advanced topics,
  • Novel or fast growing directions,
  • Significant practical applications are encouraged. Ideally a tutorial should set a baseline of consolidated knowledge about a topic but also inspire new research, e.g., new PhD research activities.

    Tutorial Dates
  • Paper submission: 18th May 2015
  • Notification to Authors: 29th May 2015
  • Camera ready submission: 12th June 2015

    Submission Guidelines
    The proposals should be submitted as a PDF document not exceeding 4 pages, submitted by e-mail to the tutorial chairs.  Tutorial proposal should contain the following sections in the suggested order:
  • Title
  • Presenters’ information:  name, email address, affiliation, brief bio. (Note that each listed presenter should be registered and present at the tutorial)
  • Duration of the tutorial and sessions (if applicable)
  • Topic and description: detailed outline of the tutorial, along with descriptions of the motivations and objectives, its relevance to UMAP, and course materials/handouts;
  • Target audience: description of intended target audience including the target level (introductory, intermediate, advanced) and prerequisite knowledge or skills, if any;
