17th International Conference of the Italian Association for Artificial
Intelligence (AI*IA 2018)
Trento, November 20-23, 2018

First Call for Tutorials Proposals

Topics of Interest

AI*IA is the premier venue for presenting innovative systems and research
results related to Artificial Intelligence, attracting a large number of
high quality submissions every year and participants from both industry and
academia. AI*IA brings together researchers from different areas, such as
artificial intelligence, databases, natural language processing,
information systems, human computer interaction, information retrieval, web
science, etc., who investigate, develop and use novel methods and
technologies concerning the Artificial Intelligence research field.

In addition to the regular research and workshop program, AI*IA 2018 will
experiment for the first time a tutorial program addressing the diverse
interests of its audience: Artificial Intelligence practitioners that wish
to learn about new technologies, novices to the Artificial Intelligence
interested in introductory tutorials to key topics, government and industry
representatives focusing on the applicability of Artificial Intelligence
technologies in practical settings.

We hereby invite you to submit a tutorial proposal on a research topic
relevant to the AI*IA 2018 audience.
Each tutorial will be a half-day event of about 3-3.5 hours.

Review Criteria

The decision on acceptance or rejection of tutorial proposals will be made
on the basis of the overall quality of the proposal and its appeal to a
reasonable fraction of the Artificial Intelligence community.

In particular, tutorials should satisfy each of the following criteria:
- the research topic falls in the general scope of the conference.
- there is a clear focus on a specific technology, problem or application.
- there is a sufficiently large community interested in the topic.

We expect proposals for the following types of tutorials:
- Tutorials providing an introduction to well established Artificial
Intelligence aspects.
- Tutorials describing the cross link between Artificial Intelligence
technologies and other disciplines/application domains.
- Tutorials presenting specific Artificial Intelligence technologies and

Additionally, we expect tutorials to have practical parts in terms of
examples or preferably exercises / hands-on sessions to be carried out by
the participants.
