***************************************************
          Call for Tutorials

AAMAS 2018: July 10-15, 2018 in Stockholm
***************************************************

http://aamas18.ifaamas.org

The AAMAS 2018 Organizing Committee invites proposals for the Tutorial Program
to be held on July 10th 2018, immediately before the technical conference. This
year, AAMAS will overlap with ICML and IJCAI, making it a unique opportunity for
researchers that do not normally attend AAMAS to present and attend tutorials at
the conference. AAMAS tutorials will be collocated with ICML tutorials.
AAMAS 2018 Tutorials should serve one or more of the following objectives:

* Introduce novices to major topics of AAMAS research.
* Provide instruction in established practices and methodologies.
* Survey a mature area of AAMAS research or practice.
* Motivate and explain an AAMAS topic of emerging importance.
* Introduce expert non-specialists to an AAMAS area.
* Survey an area of agent research especially relevant for people from industry.
* Present a novel synthesis combining distinct lines of AAMAS work.
* Introduce AAMAS audiences to an external topic that can motivate or use AAMAS research.

Topic areas of interest include all of those listed in the call for the technical
track (see http://celweb.vuse.vanderbilt.edu/aamas18/), including the special tracks.
Tutorials will be half day long. A few full day tutorials may be accepted, but
the proponents need to motivate their request when submitting their proposal.

SUBMISSION REQUIREMENTS

Those interested in presenting a tutorial should register their proposal via an
online form (see the submission instructions). Proposals should be two to four
pages in length and should contain the following information:

1. A short title of the tutorial.

2. A brief description of the tutorial, suitable for inclusion in the conference
registration brochure.

3. A detailed outline of the tutorial, including preferred length (half or
full day).

4. Characterization of the potential target audience for the tutorial, including
prerequisite knowledge.

5. A description of why the tutorial topic would be of interest to a substantial
part of the AAMAS audience.

6. A brief resume of the presenter(s), which should include name, postal address,
phone (and fax) numbers, email address, background in the tutorial area, any
available example of work in the area (ideally, a published tutorial-level article
on the subject), evidence of teaching experience (including references that address
the proposer's presentation skills as applicable), and evidence of scholarship in
the area.

7. The name and e-mail address of the corresponding presenter. The corresponding
presenter should be available for e-mail correspondence during the evaluation
process, in the case clarifications and discussions on the scope and content of
the proposal are needed.

The evaluation of the proposal will take into account the level of general interest
for AAMAS attendees, the quality of the proposal, and the expertise and skills of
the presenters. We emphasize that the primary criteria for evaluation will be whether
a proposal is interesting, well-structured, and motivated, rather than the perceived
experience/standing of the proposer.

Those submitting a proposal should keep in mind that tutorials are intended to
provide an overview of the field; they should present 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.

The selection of the tutorials to be included in the final AAMAS program will be
based upon a number of factors, including: the scientific/technical interest of
the topics, the quality of the proposal, the need to avoid strictly overlapping
tutorials, and the unavoidable need to limit the overall number of selected tutorials.

RESPONSIBILITIES (with respect to accepted proposals)
AAMAS will be responsible for:

* Providing logistic support and a meeting place for the tutorial.
* Together with the organizers, determining the tutorial date and time.
* Advertising the availability of the tutorial material to the AAMAS 2017 participants.

Tutorial organizers will be responsible for:
* Providing AAMAS with a legible PDF copy of their tutorial notes by June 11, 2018.
* Providing a web site for the tutorial, which will include title and abstract of
the tutorial, presenters' details, outline, tutorial notes and related reading
material. The Tutorial co-chairs will ask the Tutorial organizers to follow some
common format and style for their web sites, in order to make them as homogeneous
as possible. More details will be provided upon acceptance.
* Presenting the tutorial at AAMAS 2017.

AAMAS reserves the right to cancel any tutorial if the above responsibilities
are not fulfilled, if deadlines are missed, or if too few attendees register for
the tutorial to support the costs of running the tutorial.
