Call for Tutorials

SASO 2012 will host a tutorial program, to be held in Lyon, France, in September of 2012. For detailed information about SASO 2012 please visit the conference web site.

Goal and Scope

The goal of the tutorial program of SASO 2012 is to provide an instructional offer to scholars, practitioners and student attending the conference, on a range of topics related to self-adaptive and self-organizing systems.

We plan to accommodate either half-day tutorials (approx. 3.0 hours, plus one 30-minutes break) and full-day tutorials (approx 6.0 hours, plus two 30-minutes breaks, and a lunch break). The topic of a tutorial may range from practical techniques and technologies, to methodologies, to guidelines over standards, to theoretical aspects.

The topics areas that fall into the general scope of SASO, as well as the focus of this years conference, are listed in the Call For Papers that is available on the conference web site. Please note that no marketing or product specific tutorials will be accepted.

Tutorial levels may be introductory, intermediate, or advanced. Topics that can capture the interest of a broad audience of scholars, practitioners or students are preferred.

Review Process

Each tutorial proposal will be evaluated by the SASO organizing committee, according to its relevance to SASO and its community, attractiveness and novelty of the topic, consistency with the focus of the conference, general fit within the overall tutorial program, and previous teaching experience of the proposers.

Submission Guidelines

Tutorial proposals must not be longer than three pages, in the same format of the SASO research papers, that is, compliant with the IEEE Computer Society Press proceedings style.

Please make sure the submission includes the following elements:

  • title of the tutorial;
  • preferred duration (half-day or full-day);
  • intended level (introductory,  intermediate, or advanced) and prerequisites
  • contact information for all presenters, including full name, affiliation, email address, full postal address, phone and fax number, URL of personal homepage;
  • short bio of all presenters including prior teaching and tutorial experiences;
  • description of the material covered by the tutorial, not exceeding two pages (approx. 1500 words): must include a proposed structure of the content to be presented;
  •  identification of the target audience (e.g., researchers, teachers, practitioners, students);
  •  references of publications (books, papers etc.) the tutorial builds on;
  •  indication of whether the submission of a tutorial paper (see below) is planned.

All proposals should be submitted as a PDF document via email to the tutorial chairs.

Accepted Proposals and Tutorial Papers

Once notified that the tutorial has been accepted, proposers of accepted tutorials will be given the opportunity to submit a tutorial paper to SASO 2012. Please note that submitting a tutorial paper is optional. The content of a tutorial paper must directly relate to the material covered by the tutorial and must not exceed 10 pages, in a format compliant with the IEEE Computer Society Press proceedings Style.

All submitted tutorial papers will undergo a review process by the organizing committee. The SASO organizing committee reserves the right to refuse the publication of tutorial papers if, for example, the technical quality of the paper is insufficient, or the content of the paper does not match the topic of the corresponding tutorial, etc.

Accepted tutorial papers will be published by IEEE Computer Society Press, and made available as part of the IEEE Digital Library.

Proposers of an accepted tutorial preferring not to submit a tutorial paper -- or whose tutorial paper is rejected -- are however required to submit a two page extended abstract describing the content of the tutorial together with the handout material. Please note that the extended abstract will not be published in the conference proceedings.
