The tutorial proposal should specify the background knowledge and skills
required of participants. It should also specify the level of the tutorial
as introductory, intermediate or advanced. A tutorial may take either half a
day or a full day. Tutorial proposals will be evaluated on  the quality of
the proposal, basis of their benefits to participants and
their fit within the overall tutorials programme. Factors to be considered
include relevance, timeliness and audience appeal; suitability for
presentation in a half-day or full-day tutorial; use of appropriate
presentation methods and exercises; and past experience and qualifications
of the instructors. More detailed instructions at

The workshop proposal should specify the background knowledge required of
