Call For Tutorials
The ICML 2017 Organizing Committee invites proposals for tutorials to be given on August 6, 2017, immediately preceding the main conference.
We welcome proposals for tutorials on either core machine learning topics or topics of emerging importance for machine learning. We will consider tutorials on any topic if the proposal makes a strong argument that such a tutorial serves an important function for the ICML community. Tutorials should be of interest to a substantial part of the ICML audience and represent a sufficiently mature area of research or practice.
We anticipate to accept nine tutorials, running three in parallel; each tutorial will be 2 hours long.
Proposals should be structured to answer the following questions:
2) Brief description and outline: What will the tutorial be about? Please include a detailed outline of what you plan to cover. If available, please include samples of your past tutorial slides and links to video recordings on the topic.
3) Goals: What objectives does the tutorial serve? Why is it important to include it as a part of ICML-2017?
4) Target audience: Who is your target audience? How many participants do you expect to see? What kind of background do you expect them to have?
5) Presenters: Please include the names and email addresses of the presenters, along with brief bios. Since time is short, we suggest that each tutorial is given by at most two presenters. If there is more than one presenter, please describe how time will be split. Please briefly describe each presenter’s expertise in the tutorial area.
Tutorial proposals should be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org by March 17, 2017.
