Call For Tutorials

IJCAI 2023 invites proposals for the Tutorial Track. Tutorials will be held on August 19-21, immediately before the technical conference. Tutorial attendance is complimentary for all IJCAI 2023 conference registrants; those not registered for the main conference can access the tutorials by paying a tutorial registration fee.

Objectives

Tutorials should serve one or more of the following objectives:

  • Introduce novices to major topics within AI.
  • Introduce expert non-specialists to an AI area.
  • Motivate and explain a topic of emerging importance for AI.
  • Survey a mature area of AI research or practice.
  • Educate experts or non-experts on established but specialized AI methodologies.
  • Present novel synthesis conceptualizations or methods that combine distinct lines of AI research.
  • Introduce AI audiences to an external topic that can motivate or use AI research.
  • Mentor AI researchers (particularly junior researchers) on a broad AI-relevant non-technical topic (examples could be AI jobs or ethical issues in AI).

Tutorials are intended to cover reasonably well-established information in a balanced way. Tutorials should not be used to advocate a single avenue of research, nor should they promote a product. We welcome tutorials with interactive elements but recognize this may not be appropriate to all topics in AI. We also welcome tutorials on topical subjects, particularly social or industrial implications, such as privacy, security, fairness, or ethics in AI.
