IEEE MDM 2021: Call for Advanced Seminars


21st IEEE International Conference on Mobile Data Management
June 15 - June 18, 2021, Toronto, Canada
http://mdmconferences.org/mdm2021/

MDM 2021 invites submissions for Advanced Seminar (i.e., Tutorial)
proposals on all topics listed in the Call for Papers of the conference.

Advanced Seminar proposals should be no more than four pages and strictly 
follow the IEEE conference style templates. Advanced Seminars are planned to
take place in parallel with the rest tracks of the conference for 
the entire duration of the conference. The intended length of the tutorial 
(1.5 or 3 hours) should be indicated. Proposals should identify any other 
venues in which all or part of the seminar has been or will be presented,
and explain how the seminar proposal for MDM 2021 differs.

The   logistics  of   the  Advanced Seminars  will  be  handled  by  the
MDM  2021 organization.   Specifically,  MDM  2021 will  take  care  of
facilities, catering, and the registration process pertinent to all 
hosted Advanced Seminars.

At least one organizer  of an accepted Advanced Seminar is required
to attend the conference to carry out the presentation. In  addition,  each
advanced seminar organizer is expected to collaborate with the
Proceedings Chair for the purpose of ensuring timely completion of 
the camera-ready copies before the conference proceedings deadline.

Each accepted advanced seminar will receive one complementary conference 
registration.

Proposal  evaluation  criteria include  the  following:  relevance to  MDM,
scientific    quality,   perceived    interest  and overlap with
other proposals. Please kindly refer to the topics of interest at:
