The proposal should include a (maximum) three-page description of the tutorial (see below for details) and 1 page professional biographies of the tutorial speakers that highlight their qualifications and track record in the proposed subject area of the tutorial. The three-page tutorial proposal should contain the following information:
- Format of the tutorial: full-day, half-day, mini-tutorial.
- Title and abstract: Propose a title and an abstract that allows conference attendees to quickly and accurately understand the subject matter of the tutorial.
- Motivation and Focus: Explain why your topic is important to the ICARA community and what you hope the participants will learn by attending your tutorial. In this section, please provide a syllabus outlining the content of the tutorial and the learning outcomes. This syllabus should be realistic, given the time available.
- List of speakers: This is in addition to the tutorial organizers. Some tutorials may feature several speakers that should be advertised, but it is not necessary, nor a requirement. Tutorials should not become de facto mini-symposia with many speakers. If you plan to have multiple speakers, please provide their names and affiliations and clearly describe the part of the tutorial that they will cover.
- Basic structure of the Tutorial: In this section, please describe your use of the time available. (e.g., morning lectures: fundamentals and case studies; afternoon panel discussion or brain-storming sessions, etc.).
