CALL FOR TUTORIAL PROPOSALS: 31st International Conference on Machine Learning, June 21, 2014 in Beijing, CHINA

ICML 2014

Important dates
* Tutorial proposal deadline Feb 21, 2014

The ICML 2014 Organizing Committee invites 
proposals for tutorials to be held at the 
31th International Conference on Machine 
Learning, on June 21, 2014 in Beijing, 

We seek proposals for two-hour tutorials 
on core techniques and areas of knowledge 
of broad interest within the machine 
learning community, including established 
or emerging research topics within the 
field itself, as well as from related 
fields or application areas that are 
clearly relevant to machine learning.

The ideal tutorial should attract a wide 
audience, and should be broad enough to 
provide a gentle introduction to the chosen 
research area, but should also cover the 
most important contributions in depth. 
Tutorial proceedings will not be provided 
in hardcopy, but will instead be made 
available by the presenters on their 
website prior to the conference.

How to Propose a Tutorial:

Proposals should provide sufficient 
information to evaluate the quality and 
importance of the topic, the likely quality 
of the presentation materials, and the 
speakers' teaching ability. The written 
proposal should be 2-3 pages long, and 
should use the following boldface text for 
section headings:

Topic overview:

What will the tutorial be about? Why is 
this an interesting and significant subject 
for the machine learning community at 

Target audience:

From which areas do you expect potential 
participants to come? What prior knowledge, 
if any, do you expect from the audience? 
What will the participants learn? How many 
participants do you expect?

Content details:

Provide a detailed outline of the topics 
to be presented, including estimates for 
the time that will be devoted to each 
subject. Aim for a total length of 
approximately two hours. If possible, 
provide samples of past tutorial slides or 
teaching materials. In case of multiple 
presenters, specify how you will distribute 
the work.


How will you present the material? Will 
there be multimedia parts of the 
presentation? Do you plan software 
demonstrations? Specify any extraordinary 
technical equipment that you would need.

Organizers' and presenters' expertise:

Please include the name, email address, 
and webpage of all presenters. In addition, 
outline the presenters' background and 
include a list of publications in the 
tutorial area.

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