(apologies for cross-posting)


The ECAI 2016 (www.ecai2016.org) Organizing Committee invites proposals for  
tutorials to be held in conjunction with the conference. Under the general  
theme of "AI for human values", ECAI 2016 will be held in the city of The  
Hague, in sight the Peace Palace, seat of the International Court of  
Justice. This location is highly appropriate to the conference theme. The  
tutorials will be scheduled on August 29-30.

As in former editions, tutorial participation is free for all conference  
participants in order to encourage high participation rates in the  

== Format and application =
In addition to "standard" half-day tutorials, ECAI 2016 will also feature  
"spotlight" tutorials, organized in a single 90-minute slot each. Spotlight  
tutorials are meant to address emerging areas, techniques, methodologies  
and perspectives in AI. Standard tutorials are meant to cover rather  
established areas of AI such as Machine Learning, Knowledge Representation,  
Natural Language Processing and others, as well as, in particular, topics  
in the overlap of such areas.

Applications must be made via EasyChair at  
http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ecai2016-tutorials (to be opened  

They should include a 2-page abstract, indicating title, topic and  
motivation for the tutorial, intended audience, preferred format (standard  
or spotlight), relevance to the ECAI community, list of previous venues and  
audience numbers for related tutorials, specific equipment requirements,  
and a short bio of the presenter(s), including name, affiliation, email  
address and website. Notice that we might ask you to switch to the other  
format for organizational reasons.

== Important Dates =
- Tutorial  proposal submission: 18 January 2016
- Tutorial  proposal notification: 15 February 2016

== Areas =
The tutorial should concern artificial intelligence and its applications.  
We welcome tutorials about both well established areas, as well as up and  
coming topics.

== Policy on multiple submissions =
We encourage proposals of brand new tutorials, as well as tutorials that  
have already been successfully offered before, or that are also being  
proposed to other venues (e.g., other major AI conferences). In that case,  
the application should include a complete list of such venues.

== Benefits =
For each full tutorial 1 free conference registration to ECAI 2016 will be  
available. Giving a tutorial is an excellent way to gain visibility, to  
build your professional network, and is seen as an important service to the  

== Cancellation =
Please understand that we may have to cancel a tutorial if not enough  
participants register or if deadlines are not met. At least 10 participants  
need to be registered by the early registration deadline to guarantee that  
the tutorial goes ahead.

== Inquiries =
Direct all your inquires to the tutorial chairs Sophia Ananiadou and Leon  
van der Torre via  tutorial-chairs at ecai2016.org
