The call for tutorials is now closed.

The following tutorials have been accepted for collocation with ASE 2013.

Call for Papers — Tutorial Proposals

Tutorials may address a wide range of mature topics from theoretical foundations to practical techniques and tools for automated software engineering. The tutorials will be organized before the main conference (Monday, Tuesday). The organizers will decide the exact day after the proposals have been reviewed and accepted. Tutorials are intended to provide independent instruction on a relevant theme; therefore, no commercial or sales-oriented proposals will be accepted.

Instructors are invited to submit proposals for half-day or full-day tutorials and, upon selection, are required to provide tutorial notes or a survey paper on the topic of presentation in PDF. Proposals for organizing tutorials should be written in English, limited to 5 pages (in IEEE format), and submitted in PDF to both tutorials co-chairs by E-mail. They should include the following information:

  • Name and affiliation of the proposer/organizer (including postal address, phone number, fax number, e-mail address)
  • Name and affiliation of each additional instructor
  • Instructors’ experience in the area, including other tutorials, courses, etc.
  • Title, objective, abstract, duration
  • Outline with approximate timings
  • Target audience, including indication of level (novice, intermediate, expert)
  • Assumed background of attendees
  • Brief biography of each instructor (for later inclusion in publicity materials)
  • Indication of whether a survey paper will be provided (max. 30 IEEE-formatted pages)
  • History of the tutorial (if it has been already presented; provide location, estimated attendance, etc.)
  • Justification for full day (if a full day is proposed)
  • Audio-visual and technical requirements
  • References including the proposers’ papers on the subject
  • Preferences for tutorial date, duration (half-day or full-day), and any other scheduling constraints

Note that the tutorial co-chairs will consider the preference of tutorial dates specified by the organizers, but the acceptance of a tutorial proposal does not guarantee adherence to the requested date/time. The tutorial co-chairs will assume that tutorial proposers will be able to run a tutorial on the dates that ASE 2013 has reserved for tutorials. Review Process. Tutorial proposals will be reviewed by the ASE 2013 tutorials and workshop cochairs. Acceptance will be based on the timeliness and expected interest in the topic, the proposer’s ability to present an interesting tutorial, and the potential for attracting a sufficient number of participants.
