SIGMOD Call for Tutorial Proposals
We solicit proposals for tutorials for presentation at the 2009 SIGMOD conference. Proposals must provide an in-depth survey of the chosen topic with the option of describing a particular piece of work in detail. A meaningful summary of open issues in the topic would be a plus.
Proposals must be no more than five pages, using an 11 pt or larger font for the body of the text of the proposal, and must include enough details to provide a sense of both the scope of material to be covered and the depth to which it will be covered. Proposals should also indicate the tutorial length (typically 1.5 or 3 hours; if the tutorial can be either length, please be sure to identify which material is included for each length). Proposals should also identify any other venues in which all or part of the tutorial has been or will be presented, and explain how the current proposal differs from those other editions of the tutorial. Tutorial proposals must clearly identify the intended audience and any prerequisite knowledge for attendees. Proposals should include a brief (no more than 3 sentences) professional biography.
Please submit proposals by E-mail (in PDF format) to Sihem Amer-Yahia (sihem [at] yahoo-inc.com) by 5PM PST on December 4th, 2008.
