Tutorials Call for Proposals

Proposal Deadline: May 15, 2023

Notification by: June 15, 2023

Submission link: Please send your proposal document to ciarp2023@isec.pt and prefix your email subject with [Tutorial Proposal].

We solicit proposals for short courses and tutorials to be held at the 26th Iberoamerican Congress on Pattern Recognition.

Courses and tutorials have a half-day length and will take place on November 27 2023, the day before the main conference.

A CIARP short course or tutorial should aim to give a comprehensive overview of a specific topic that is closely related to pattern recognition. A good tutorial should be educational rather than just a cursory survey of techniques. Typical tutorial audiences consist of graduate students, but also include researchers and practitioners from both academia and industry.

Proposals should be in PDF format of at most three pages (excluding biographies), and should include the following information:

  • Proposed title;
  • Proposers’ names, titles, affiliations, emails, and brief bio sketches;
  • Course description with list of topics to be covered, along with a brief outline and important details;
  • Expected target audience, in terms of both composition and estimated number of attendees;
  • List of at most 10 citations and/or URLs to relevant publications and/or products by the organizers, and to other relevant related work;
  • Links to a few previous recorded talks given by the presenters (if available);
  • Description of and/or links to any planned materials or resources to be distributed to attendees;
  • Special notes on the tutorial structure.

Presentation has max 3 speakers (half-day). If more speakers are necessary, please provide a brief justification in the proposal;
If there is a panel discussion at the end of the tutorial session, the organization details (duration, number of panelists) must be provided in the proposal.

Evaluation criteria:
Educational value, interest and relevance.
We encourage topics and scope that have high educational value, of broad interest to the community and can inspire further research activities. A good tutorial should not simply be a survey of the presenters’ own works. We welcome proposals on emerging technical areas, societal and ethical implications of pattern recognition, and also topics that may not be seen as “traditional” in the CIARP community.

Track record and expertise of organizers/speakers.
The presenters/speakers should have representative publications on the proposed topics, and experience in giving tutorials, classes, or talks with high educational value.

Diversity in the organizing team and speakers.
We encourage diversity in the organizing teams and speakers in all aspects, including gender, race, affiliation, geography, seniority, and perspective (e.g., advocates vs critics, academia vs industry).
