Eleventh International Conference on AUTONOMOUS AGENTS AND MULTIAGENT SYSTEMS (AAMAS 2012) Valencia, Spain

The AAMAS 2012 Organizing Committee invites proposals for the Tutorial
Program, to be held on June 4-5, immediately before the technical
conference. AAMAS 2012 Tutorials should serve one or more of the following

* Introduce novices to major topics of AAMAS research.
* Provide instruction in established practices and methodologies.
* Survey a mature area of AAMAS research or practice.
* Motivate and explain an AAMAS topic of emerging importance.
* Introduce expert non-specialists to an AAMAS area.
* Survey an area of agent research especially relevant for people from

Topic areas of interest include all of those listed in the call for the
technical track, including the special tracks on robotics, virtual agents,
and innovative applications.


Proposals should be two to four pages in length, and should contain the
following information:

1. A brief description of the tutorial, suitable for inclusion in the
    conference registration brochure.

2. A detailed outline of the tutorial, including preferred length (half or
    full day).

3. Characterization of the potential target audience for the tutorial,
    including prerequisite knowledge.

4. A description of why the tutorial topic would be of interest to a
    substantial part of the AAMAS audience.

5. A brief resume of the presenter(s), which should include name, postal
    address, phone and fax numbers, email address, background in the
    tutorial area, any available example of work in the area (ideally, a
    published tutorial-level article on the subject), evidence of teaching
    experience (including references that address the proposer's
    presentation skills as applicable), and evidence of scholarship in the

6. The name and e-mail address of the corresponding presenter. The
    corresponding presenter should be available for e-mail correspondence
    during the evaluation process, in the case clarifications and
    discussions on the scope and content of the proposal are needed.

The evaluation of the proposal will take into account the level of general
interest for AAMAS attendees, the quality of the proposal, and the
expertise and skills of the presenters. We emphasize that the primary
criteria for evaluation will be whether a proposal is interesting,
well-structured, and motivated, rather than the perceived
experience/standing of the proposer.

Those submitting a proposal should keep in mind that tutorials are intended
to provide an overview of the field; they should present reasonably well
established information in a balanced way. Tutorials should not be used to
advocate a single avenue of research, nor should they promote a product.

The selection of the tutorials to be included in the final AAMAS program
will be based upon a number of factors, including: the scientific/technical
interest of the topics, the quality of the proposal, the need to avoid
strictly overlapping tutorials, and the unavoidable need to limit the
overall number of selected tutorials.

RESPONSIBILITIES (with respect to accepted proposals)

AAMAS will be responsible for:
* Providing logistic support and a meeting place for the tutorial.
* Together with the organizers, determining the tutorial date and time.
* Duplicating tutorial material and distributing them to the participants.

Tutorial organizers will be responsible for:
* Providing AAMAS with a legible PDF copy of their tutorial notes by March
   28, 2012.
* Presenting the tutorial at AAMAS 2012.

AAMAS reserves the right to cancel any tutorial if the above
responsibilities are not fulfilled, if deadlines are missed, or if too few
attendees register for the tutorial to support the costs of running the
