AIIA19 - The 18th International Conference of the Italian Association 
for Artificial Intelligence
UNICAL, Rende (CS), 19-22 November 2019

AIIA 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, AIIA 2019 will 
include a tutorial program addressing the diverse interests of its 
audience: Artificial Intelligence practitioners that wish to learn about 
new technologies, novices to Artificial Intelligence interested in 
introductory tutorials to key topics, government and industry 
representatives focusing on the applicability of Artificial Intelligence 
technologies in practical settings. This program will follow the 
successful experiment started during AIIA 2018.

We invite you to submit a tutorial proposal on a research topic relevant 
to the AIIA 2019 audience. Each tutorial will be a half-day event of 
about 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 and application domains.
- Tutorials presenting specific Artificial Intelligence technologies and 

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