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.
