We invite the submission of proposals for tutorials relating to all aspects of data management, including database systems, Web, information retrieval and data mining. We particularly encourage work on topics of emerging interest in the research and development communities in these areas.
Tutorial proposals must clearly identify the intended audience and include enough material to provide a sense of both the scope of material to be covered and the depth to which it will be covered. Tutorials can run for either 3 hours or 1.5 hours. Please indicate which of these time periods are suitable for your proposal. If you can work with either length, be sure that your proposal makes clear the content of both the long and short versions.
The proposal can be up to four pages in length, using 11 pt or larger font. It should identify any other venues in which all or part of the tutorial has been or will be presented, and explain how the current proposal differs from the other editions. It should also include a brief professional biography of the tutorial presenters.
Additional materials (draft slides, etc.) may be submitted or referenced by URL, and these materials will be considered at the discretion of the program committee.
The tutorial proposal itself should be submitted through the conference management tool at https://msrcmt.research.microsoft.com/COMAD2005b_DPT (the submission deadline is 3.00 pm PST on Tuesday, July 26, 2005).
If you have any questions, please contact the Tutorials Chair, Jayant Haritsa (haritsa AT dsl.serc.iisc.ernet.in).
