Call for Tutorials

Important Dates

Tutorial proposals due: Monday, November 6, 2006
Notification: Wednesday, December 6, 2006
Tutorials: March 12-13, 2007

The AOSD.07 Organizing Committee invites proposals for tutorials to be held in conjunction with the AOSD.07 conference. We seek to offer a high-quality tutorial program covering the state of the art in AOSD, with topics of interest for participants with intermediate to advanced knowledge of the subject. Tutorials should address advanced techniques, applications, and emerging opportunities in AOSD and related areas. Each submission will be evaluated according to the value and relevance of its topic to conference attendees, the expertise and experience of the presenters, and the completeness and overall quality of the tutorial proposal.

Tutorial proposals should be for a half-day, which is 3 hours excluding breaks. For topics that do not fit well into a half-day format we invite proposals for combined half-day tutorials where a participant can choose to join for only the first half or both halves.


Specific topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Programming languages
  • Software architectures and product lines
  • Reverse engineering and refactoring tools
  • Analysis and design methods
  • Verification, validation, and testing

Submission Requirements

A tutorial proposal should contain the following information:

  1. About each Instructor:
    • Name
    • Contact information (affiliation, job title, postal address, email address, URL, phone number, and fax number)
    • Brief biography (100–150 words)
    • Photograph (80x100 px)
    • Summary of teaching experience
    • Indication of primary contact
  2. About the Tutorial:
    • Title
    • Abstract (200–300 words suitable for use in publicity material)
    • Expected audience (Technical experts, managers, users or others)
    • Level of the tutorial (intermediate or advanced)
    • Prerequisites for participants (background, knowledge and/or skills)
    • Description (1000–3000 words describing the topic, why it is important, educational goals, and a detailed outline including a syllabus and time schedule)
    • Previous venues at which this tutorial has been presented, number of participants and any rating information received
    • Required equipment for presentation
    • Required equipment for participants (for hands-on sessions)

Submission Guidelines

Proposals must be submitted in PDF format. Tutorial materials such as slides and handouts should be included if available to show depth and maturity of the tutorial, but are not required for submission.

Submission Deadlines

Tutorial proposals must be sent via email to the AOSD.07 Tutorial Chair at, and must be received no later than Monday, November 6, 2006. Early submissions allow us to provide feedback that can improve the final proposal. Notifications to submitters will be made no later than Wednesday, December 6, 2006. Tutorial presenters should be prepared to submit completed course materials to the Tutorial Chair by February 23, 2007.
