Call for Tutorial Proposals

CHIIR 2020 is pleased to invite proposals for tutorials to be given in conjunction with the conference. The goal of the tutorials is to provide conference attendees, including early-career researchers and researchers crossing-over from related disciplines, with an opportunity to learn about concepts and techniques for research into user-centered aspects of information interaction and information retrieval. Tutorials also serve as a venue to share presenters’ expertise with the global community of user-centered information retrieval researchers and practitioners. Tutorials focus on specific topics including, but not limited to:

Tutorials could be either full-day or half-day, and the length of your proposed tutorial should be commensurate with the presented materials and the projected interest of the CHIIR community in the tutorial topic. We actively encourage both researchers and industry practitioners to submit tutorial proposals that target different levels of expertise and different interests. We also encourage the submission of hands-on tutorials that combine theoretical concepts with practical exercises.

Proposal Format and Submission

The tutorial proposal should be a PDF document no more than 4 pages long (including references), submitted by e-mail to tutorials.chiir2020@gmail.com and organized as follows:

Evaluation Criteria

Tutorial proposals will be reviewed according to: (1) ability of the tutorial to contribute to strengthening the foundations of research into user-centered aspects of information interaction and information retrieval, or to broadening the field to look at important new challenges and techniques, (2) experience and skill of the presenter(s), and (3) the value of any materials released with the tutorial for the community.

Important Dates

Deadlines refer to 23:59 (11:59pm) in the AoE (Anywhere on Earth) time zone.
