27TH EUROPEAN CONFERENCE ON ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE

19-24 OCTOBER 2024
Santiago de Compostela

Call for Tutorial Proposals

We invite proposals for tutorials to be held as part of the pre-conference programme during the first two days of the conference.

Objectives

Tutorials should serve one or more of the following objectives:

  • Introduce novices to major topics within Artificial Intelligence.

  • Introduce expert non-specialists to an AI subarea.

  • Introduce expert non-specialists to the use of readily deployed AI tools (e.g. machine learning models) in various areas of AI research.

  • Motivate and explain a topic of emerging importance for AI.

  • Survey a mature area of AI research and/or practice.

  • Provide instruction in established but specialized AI methodologies.

  • Present a novel synthesis combining distinct lines of AI work.

  • Introduce AI audience 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 encourage tutorials with a hands-on component or other interactive elements. We also welcome tutorials on topical subjects, particularly those with social or industrial implications, such as privacy, security, fairness, or ethics in AI.

Policies

ECAI will provide a free registration for the pre-conference programme for one presenter of each tutorial. Any additional presenters will have to register and pay the registration fee.

Please understand that we may have to cancel a tutorial if not enough participants register or if deadlines are not met. We are aiming for at least 10 registered participants by the early registration deadline.
