The AAMAS 2015 Organizing Committee invites proposals for the Tutorial Program, to be held on 4-5, immediately before the technical conference.
AAMAS 2015 Tutorials should serve one or more of the following objectives:
Tutorials will be 2 hours long. A few longer tutorials (4 hours) may be accepted but the proponents need to motivate their request when submitting their proposal.
Proposals should be two to four pages in length, and should contain the following information:
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.
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.
