AISB event Bulletin Item


The AAMAS-13 Organizing Committee invites proposals for the Tutorial
Program, to be held on May 6--7, immediately before the main
conference program. AAMAS-13 Tutorials should serve one or more of the
following objectives:

  - 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 industry.

Topic areas of interest include all of those listed in the AAMAS-2013
call for papers, including all special tracks.

Submission Requirements

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 area.

  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 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. It is often beneficial to have multiple
presenters who represent multiple perspectives on a research area.

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 for 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

  - Duplicating tutorial material and distributing them to the

Tutorial organizers will be responsible for:

  - Providing AAMAS with a legible PDF copy of their tutorial notes by
    March 4, 2013.

  - Presenting the tutorial at AAMAS-2013.

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 tutorial.
