Call for Tutorial Proposals


We would like to solicit proposals for tutorials to be held in conjunction with ACM Multimedia 2017. ACM Multimedia 2017 Tutorials will address the state-of-the-art research and developments to provide a comprehensive overview of specific topics in multimedia. A good tutorial should be educational rather than just a cursory survey of techniques and of sufficient relevance and importance to attract significant interest from wide audience in the multimedia community.

Although most courses are half-day offerings (3-4 hours including breaks) we also invite proposals for full-day courses (5-7 hours including breaks) provided that the topic merits the additional time and can be anticipated to generate sufficient interest from our community.

Proposals should be submitted by email to the tutorial Chairs (), in a PDF format. The tutorial description must not exceed three A4 pages (all inclusive) including the following information:

  • Short course/tutorial title
  • Proposers’ names, titles, affiliations and primary contact email
  • Short bio (max 2 paragraphs) for each organizer, including pointers to relevant publications and experiences
  • Preference for half- or full-day event and indicative breakdown of day
  • Motivation for having a tutorial on the proposed topic and explanations why the proposed tutorial would be beneficial to the multimedia community and of high impact.
  • Course description that includes topics that will be covered, along with a brief outline and work distribution in case of multiple presenters
  • Anticipated target audience (introductory, intermediate, advanced) as well as expected number of attendees
  • Planned materials to be distributed to attendees
