Call for Tutorials


UMAP 2013 is pleased to invite proposals for tutorials to be held in conjunction with the conference. Tutorials offer the community an opportunity to learn about the state-of-the-art concepts and techniques and allow the presenters to share their expertise. We invite proposals for tutorials from active researchers and experienced presenters. Ideally, a tutorial will cover the state-of-the-art research and development in a specific area strongly related to UMAP. Tutorials on interdisciplinary areas, novel or fast growing directions, and significant practical applications are also encouraged.


The proposals should be PDF documents not exceeding 3 pages, submitted by e-mail to the tutorial chairs. The proposals should be organized as follows:

  • Tutorial title and length
  • Name, email address, and affiliation of the presenter(s). Note that each listed presenter should be registered and present at the tutorial
  • Detailed outline of the tutorial, along with descriptions of the objectives, its relevance to UMAP, and course materials/handouts
  • Target audience level (introductory, intermediate, advanced) and prerequisite knowledge or skills, if any
  • History of prior tutorials delivered by the presenter(s)

We encourage prospective presenters to contact the tutorial chairs in advance and discuss their tutorial ideas.
