have  included: user interface development, HCI theories, requirements
analysis  techniques, usability evaluation, design methodologies, work
analysis and  modelling, emerging technologies and many other relevant

Tutorial participants include user interface designers and users,
software developers,  project managers, HCI researchers and teachers,
and professionals in other areas  interested in understanding how HCI
relates to their lives.

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.

each presented tutorial and an additional fee  (full-day 30, half-day

conference for the  presenter(s), or be paid on receipt of an invoice.

notes for duplication must be supplied  no later than 6 weeks before
the conference. If a tutorial does not attract  sufficient attendees
by 4 weeks before it is due to be presented, then the  conference
committee may cancel it, in which case a fee of 100 for a full-day
tutorial and 50 for a half-day will be paid for the preparation of
the notes.

presented as follows:

full day, whether the tutorial in new, has been given before, or is
derived from a previous one, the names and affiliations of all
