invites proposals for the tutorial programme to be held on Tuesday 3 Dec 2013 immediately prior 
to the main technical programme of the AI'2013 (4-6 December 2013).

The tutorials aim at providing conference attendees with an introduction to current research in 
a specific area of artificial intelligence.  Tutorial topics include, but are not restricted to, 
the following topics listed at: http://ai2013.otago.ac.nz/call-for-papers/.

Requirements for Tutorial Proposal (2 pages)

The first page should contain the following information:
* Concise title, abstract of the tutorial and tentative contents in syllabus-like form
* Proposed duration (i.e. half day = 3 hours or full day = 2 x 3 hours)
* Intended audience and prerequisite knowledge: what the attendees should already know

The second page on background information on the presenter(s) should contain:
* Names, affiliations, homepages, contact details and short biographies of presenter(s)
* Information about previous tutorials (title, location, number of attendees, etc.) if any
* Tutorial materials such as handouts or slides should be included if already available, but 
are not required for submission. 

All proposals should be submitted by the deadline, via e-mail, to the AI'13 tutorial chair:

Lubica Benuskova lubica@cs.otago.ac.nz

The selection of tutorials to be included in the final AI '13 programme will be based upon: 
scientific/technical interest of the topics, the quality of the proposal, balance of topics, 
and the capacity of the conference tutorial program. Authors of proposals addressing similar 
and/or overlapping content areas and/or audiences may be requested to merge their proposals.

Responsibilities of AI'13

For successful proposals, AI'13 will be responsible for the followings:
* Providing publicity for the tutorial series as a whole
* Providing logistic support and a meeting place for the tutorial
* AI'13 reserves the right to cancel any tutorial if too few attendees register for the tutorial 
to support its running costs.
