Proposals

The tutorials for DATE 2018 are designed to provide audiences with introductions to important topics in the DATE technical areas. Early career professionals - Ph.D. and M. S. students, early stage professionals - will benefit by rounding out their knowledge of important topics. Mid-career professionals can use the tutorials to extend their horizons. We welcome proposals for tutorial presentations in the DATE technical areas.

On the first day, half-day technical tutorials on selected topics will be given by leading experts in their respective fields. The proposal should motivate the topic and its relevance for both academia and industry, specify whether it covers foundational topics or cutting-edge ones, describe the target audience (expected type of attendees? expected number? match with typical DATE audience?), the reason for a tutorial (why a tutorial, why now). Hands-on tutorials are welcomed. Moreover, the proposal should include a brief abstract with a list of learning objectives, and a clear planning hereto (organization in sessions, possible speakers, what will be done to attract the audience), and the DATE Topic to which it is more closely related. A tutorial proposal example is available on the DATE website.

A tutorial proposal example is available here for download. Proposals should be submitted before Sunday, September 10, 2017 23:59:59 CET via the DATE website.

Submissions of all tutorials need to be made on-line via the following URL:

The tutorial organizer(s) will be notified of acceptance or rejection of proposals by Friday, November 10, 2017. In case of acceptance, final information about the tutorial structure (confirmed speakers, final abstract, final agenda) must be provided by Thursday, November 30, 2017 23:59:59 CET. Tutorial hand-out material (consisting of all slides and perhaps also background reading material) needs to be uploaded as a single PDF or ZIP file at the DATE website by Wednesday, February 28, 2018. The hand-out material will be available to tutorial attendees only!

  • Free registration for all tutorial speakers to the DATE 2018 Monday Tutorials.
  • One free conference registration per tutorial.
  • A honorarium up to € 1.000,00 depending on the success of the tutorial, to be divided by the various speakers of the tutorial.
