CF ICML 2010 Tutorial Proposals

ICML-2010 Call for Tutorials

The ICML-2010 Organizing Committee invites proposals for tutorials to
be held at the 27th International Conference on Machine Learning, on
Monday, June 21, 2010 in Haifa, Israel (

We seek proposals for tutorials on core techniques and areas of
knowledge that enjoy 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.

The timeline is as follows:

  * Tutorial proposals due: February 13, 2010
  * Acceptance notification: February 28, 2010
  * Website due: March 15, 2010
  * Tutorial material due: May 30, 2010
  * Tutorials date: June 21, 2010
