Call for Tutorial Proposals

Tutorials collocated with the 8th International Conference on the Internet of Things (IoT 2018) are opportunities for IoT researchers and practitioners to learn about models or technologies, providing practical solutions for specific problems related to the IoT.

We invite submission of half-day tutorial proposals, with a clearly defined topic that falls in the general scope of the conference.

Review Criteria

A limited number of tutorial proposals will be accepted to IoT 2018. Each proposal will be evaluated based on the quality of the proposal, and its appeal to the IoT community. In particular, the proposals should demonstrate the following:

  • the tutorial topics fall in the general scope of IoT2018
  • there is a clear focus on a specific problem or technology
  • there is a sufficiently large community interested in the topic

We expect tutorials to have practical parts in terms of examples or preferably hands-on sessions. The organisers of accepted workshops will be responsible for their own publicity (e.g., website, call for participation).

Tutorial Proposals

Submissions should be submitted no later than May 31, 2018 via EasyChair as a 200 words abstract, along with a single PDF file of 4 pages maximum, containing the following section:

  • Title, acronym, potentially logo
  • Model or technology covered by the tutorial
  • Motivation: Why is it of particular interest for the IoT community to learn about this model or technology? A brief discussion of the model/technology development history (previous tutorials, conferences where it has been presented or demonstrated, community behind its development, etc.).
  • Detailed Description: content and schedule, description of learning outcomes, presentation style, tutorial format, prior knowledge required by the attendees.
  • Tutorial Material: if applicable, description of the hardware and software used for the tutorial. Will the software be openly accessible to the participants? With what licence? If applicable, will the slides be shared with the audience, with what licence?
  • Audience: Evidence that there is an existing community of researchers and practitioners that are susceptible to participate to this event.
  • Presenters: Name, affiliation, email address, homepage and short biography of each presenter, explaining their expertise in the tutorial topic as well as their experiences in teaching and in tutorial presentation
  • Requirements: Audio-visual or technical requirements and any special room requirements.

All tutorial participants will be required to register for the full conference as well. Tutorial organizers will receive one complimentary conference ticket for one organizer or one tutorial participant. At the discretion of the chairs, tutorials may be cancelled if organizers have not registered in a timely manner.
