Call for tutorials


GSWOC’16 invites proposals for half-day tutorials, which should provide clear and focused teaching material covering topics within the scope of the conference. Proposed tutorials can address the interests of a varied audience: students, researchers, lecturers, etc. We encourage submissions of tutorial proposals on all topics in the general areas of GSWOC’16. Tutorials may be theoretical; however, we encourage the tutorial speakers to incorporate hands-on sessions and concrete examples when possible.
