Tutorial Proposals

Tutorial Sessions address current research on a topic of interest to the AIM community, at a level understandable by non-experts. Tutorial sessions have no fixed format, but they should begin with an accessible one-hour introductory presentation. The remaining hour of the session may be occupied by standard 20-minute conference presentations, panel discussions, extended Q&A, a combination thereof, or other instructional activities. Tutorial session organizers are strongly encouraged to submit a tutorial paper of up to 8 pages to accompany the session, to be peer-reviewed and published in the proceedings. However submission of such a paper is optional, and the tutorial session may be approved even if the paper is rejected.

Tutorial session proposals are evaluated primarily on clarity of presentation and the value of their content to the conference community, rather than on the novelty of their technical contribution. Tutorials connecting academic interests and industrial needs are especially encouraged.

Tutorial session proposals should be submitted directly to Tutorials & Workshops Chair, Prof. Xiang Chen (, or to the Program Chair, Prof. Jingang Yi ( Submission deadlines for tutorial sessions are flexible, however prospective tutorial session organizers are strongly encouraged to discuss their ideas with the Program Chair or the Tutorials & Workshops Chair before the deadline for the regular contributed and invited session papers.
