Call for Tutorials

SASO 2013 will host a tutorial program, to be held in Philadelphia, PA USA, in the week of September 9-13, 2013. For detailed information about SASO 2013 please visit the conference website.

Goal and Scope

The goal of the tutorial program of SASO 2013 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, guidelines over standards, to theoretical aspects related to self-adaptive and self-organizing systems (software, networks or services).

The topics areas that fall into the general scope of SASO, as well as the focus of this year’s 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 relevance and 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;

  • 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 chair at the following address:

Accepted Proposals

Once notified that the tutorial has been accepted, tutorial proposers should prepare a two-page extended abstract - compliant with the IEEE Computer Society Press proceedings style - describing the content of the tutorial, in addition to the handout material that is going to be distributed to the participants to their tutorial. Both the extended abstract and the handout material must be ready and submitted to the Tutorial Chair by the deadline noted above.
