Call for Tutorials IJCAI-PRICAI 2020

IJCAI-PRICAI 2020 invites proposals for the Tutorial Track. Tutorials
will be held on July 11-13, immediately prior to the technical
conference. Tutorial attendance is complimentary for all IJCAI-PRICAI
2020 conference registrants.

Objectives

Tutorials should serve one or more of the following objectives:

- Introduce novices to major topics within Artificial Intelligence.
- Introduce expert non-specialists to an AI subarea.
- Motivate and explain a topic of emerging importance for AI.
- Survey a mature area of AI research and/or practice.
- Provide instruction in established but specialized AI methodologies.
- Present a novel synthesis combining distinct lines of AI work.
- Introduce AI audiences to an external topic that can motivate or use
  AI research.
- Mentor AI researchers (particularly, junior researchers) on a broad
  AI-relevant non-technical topic (examples could be AI jobs, or
  ethical issues in AI).

Tutorials are intended to cover reasonably well-established
information in a balanced way. Tutorials should not be used to
advocate a single avenue of research, nor should they promote a
product. However, we strongly encourage tutorials with a hands-on
component or other interactive elements. We also particularly welcome
tutorials on socially and/or industrially relevant topics in relation
with AI such as privacy, security, fairness or ethics.
