============== KI 2017: Call for Workshops & Tutorials - Deadline Jan 
30, 2017 ==============

40th German Conference on Artificial Intelligence
September 25-29, 2017
Dortmund, Germany


KI 2017 is the 40th edition of the German Conference on Artificial 
Intelligence organized by the Fachbereich Künstliche Intelligenz der 
Gesellschaft für Informatik. KI traditionally brings together academic 
and industrial researchers from all areas of AI, providing an ideal 
place for exchanging news and research results of intelligent system 
technology. The technical program of KI 2017 will comprise paper and 
poster presentations and a variety of workshops and tutorials.

KI 2017 will take place in Dortmund, Germany, September 25th-29th, 2017, 
and is a premier forum for exchanging news and research results on 
theory and applications of intelligent system technology.

Together with the main conference, we plan to organize a small number of 
high-quality workshops and tutorials. We especially encourage events 
organized by AI Special Interest Groups (GI-Fachgruppen), events that 
bring together researchers from different disciplines, and events that 
highlight emerging topics of AI research. Tutorials should target a wide 
audience, including graduate students as well as experienced 
researchers, and practitioners. For workshops, we are interested in 
submissions of full-day (6 hours) and half-day (3 hours) workshops. For 
tutorials, we are soliciting proposals for full-day (6 hours) and 
half-day (3 hours) tutorials as well as mini-tutorials (1.5 hours).

======== How to Propose a Workshop ========
Proposals should be sent by email to the KI 2017 Workshop and Tutorial 
Chair (christoph.beierle at fernuni-hagen.de). Each workshop proposal 
should provide the following information:
- Title and acronym
- Short description of workshop topic and goal
- Names, affiliations, and contact details of all the workshop 
organizer(s). Please include one paragraph about each organizer 
(scientific profile, previous events you have organized) and indicate 
the primary contact person to whom correspondence should be directed.
- For which areas of AI do you expect to draw participants for your 
workshop and how many participants do you expect? How do you plan to 
invite participants for the workshop?
- A brief description of the workshop format and duration, tentative 
call for papers, tentative invited speakers and members of the program 

======== How to Propose a Tutorial ========
Tutorials should give a comprehensive, in-depth perspective on 
innovative AI methods or technologies that have an obvious potential for 
research and/or application and are not covered by typical AI textbooks. 
Proposals for tutorials should be submitted by e-mail to the Workshop 
and Tutorial Chair (christoph.beierle at fernuni-hagen.de).

Each tutorial proposal should provide the following information:
- Descriptions of the tutorial topic, goals, the intended audience, an 
outline of the contents
- Brief CVs of the tutor(s), including their expertise and teaching 
experience in the field and the intended length of the tutorial 
(half-day, full-day, or mini-tutorial).

Proposers are encouraged to include excerpts of material from recent 
teaching about the proposed topic as an annex of their submission, if
