21st IEEE/ACM International Conference on
Automated Software Engineering

Call for Tutorials

The 21th IEEE/ACM International Conference on Automated Software Engineering (ASE 2006) brings together researchers and practitioners to share ideas on the foundations, techniques, tools, and applications of automated software engineering technology. Both automatic systems and computer automated applications are within the scope of the conference, as are models of software and software engineering activities. We invite half-day/full-day tutorials addressing theoretical foundations, practical techniques, software tools, and applications in areas related to the ASE topics.

A Tutorial program that gives attendees the opportunity to gain new insights, knowledge and skills on evolving and emerging research topics in the area of automated software engineering will be an essential part of the ASE 2006.

The Tutorials are scheduled for September 18 and 19, 2006 at the beginning of the ASE 2006 conference. Survey papers and/or tutorial notes will be made available to the tutorial attendees at the conference. Tutorials are intended to provide independent instruction on a relevant theme, therefore no commercial or sales-oriented presentations will be accepted.

Instructors are invited to submit proposals for half-day and full-day tutorials and, upon selection, are required to provide tutorial notes or a survey paper on the topic of presentation in PDF. Proposals in PDF should be sent to both Tutorials Co-Chairs.

The official conference language is English. However, we also invite tutorials that will be held in Japanese. In this case, the tutorial proposal should indicate that the proposed tutorial will be held in Japanese.

Please include the following information in the proposal that should not exceed 5 pages:

  • name and affiliation of proposer/organizer (including address, phone number, fax number, e-mail address)
  • name and affiliation of additional presenters
  • instructor's experience in the area, such as other tutorials, courses etc.
  • title
  • objective
  • abstract
  • outline
  • duration
  • audio-visual and technical requirements
  • target audience
  • assumed background of attendees
  • brief biography of each instructor (for inclusion in publicity material)
  • indication whether a survey paper will be provided (max. 30 pages)
  • history of the tutorial (if it has been already presented; provide location, approximate attendance, etc.)
  • justification for full day (if a full day is required)
  • references for proposer's papers on the subject

Review Process

Evaluation of proposals will be based on the relevance of the subject matter and on the expertise and experience of the instructors.
