[ntcir:351] ACM SIGIR 2010: Call for Tutorials

Call for Tutorials
SIGIR 2010 will begin with a full day of tutorials on July 19, 2010.

Proposals are solicited for tutorials of either a half-day (3 hours plus
breaks) or full day (6 hours plus breaks) on all topics of information
retrieval and its applications. Each tutorial should cover a single
topic in detail. For example, tutorials may cover an information
retrieval topic in depth, introduce an emerging application for
retrieval technologies, or update the information retrieval community on
recent advances in related fields.

Submissions should include a cover sheet and an extended abstract.
The cover sheet should specify: (1) the title and length of the
tutorial; (2) the intended audience (introductory, intermediate,
advanced) and prerequisite knowledge or skills required, if any; (3)
complete contact information for the contact person and other
presenters; and (4) a brief biography (max. 2 paragraphs) for each
presenter. The extended abstract should be 3 to 4 pages, and should
include an outline of the tutorial, along with descriptions of the
course objectives, its relevance to the information retrieval community,
and course materials.

Tutorial proposals in PDF format must be sent via email by February 12,
2010 to the Tutorial Chair, Djoerd Hiemstra, using the following email
address: tutorials@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx The submissions will undergo peer
review and tutorials to be presented will be selected by the SIGIR
