ICML 2007 Call for Tutorial Proposals

 	ICML07 Second Call for Tutorial Proposals

The ICML-2007 Organizing Committee invites proposals for tutorials
to be held at the 24th International Conference on Machine Learning
(ICML-2007), on Wednesday, June 20, 2007 at Oregon State University,
Corvallis, Oregon, U.S.A.

We seek tutorial proposals on core techniques and areas of
knowledge that enjoys broad interest within the machine learning
community. We are interested in tutorials on established or
emerging research topics within the field itself, but we also
welcome tutorials from related research fields or application
areas provided that they are of sufficient interest to the machine
learning community. The ideal tutorial should attract a wide
audience. It should be broad enough to provide a gentle
introduction to the chosen research area, but it should also cover
the most important contributions in depth. Proposals that
exclusively focus on the presenters' own work or commercial
presentations are not eligible.

Guidelines for preparing a proposal can be found at:

Tutorial proposals should be submitted via email in PDF format to Soon after submission proposers should expect to
receive a verification of receipt.

Tutorial proposals due: February 16, 2007
Acceptance notification: February 23, 2007
Tutorials date: June 20, 2007

I hope to see you at the tutorials.

Tutorials Chair,
