Information for Tutorial Proposals

What are tutorials?

Tutorials at CCSCNE are conference sessions in which instruction takes place. The presenter is typically an expert on the topic being presented, and attendees are usually novices. The session consists of lecture-style instruction. A tutorial runs for one conference session of approximately 75 minutes.

What the tutorial proposal should contain:

Your tutoral proposal should contain enough information for the reviewers to evaluate the submission to see how it will fit into the overall program. In particular, your proposal should contain the following:

  • E-mail and U.S. mail addresses for the person or persons giving the tutorial.
  • A detailed description of the session.
  • A brief biography of the presenter, enough for the committee to evaluate the qualifications.
What will happen after your submission:
  • Soon after your proposal is received, the contact person will receive an email acknowledgement of the proposal.
  • If the proposal is received early enough, there may be some clarification questions asked of the contact person.
  • The co-chairs and the program committee will review all submissions and put together a program.
  • Around the second week of January, the contact person will be notified as to whether the tutorial will be included in the program.
Accepted tutorials:
  • Contact persons will be notified around the second week of January of the acceptance.
  • Before the tutorial proposal can be printed in the proceedings, the conference committee will need: 1) a copyright release form from the presenter(s), and 2) a conference registration form and fee from the presenter(s).
Sample tutorial and topics from past conferences:
  • Concurrency in curriculum
  • Java
  • Multimedia Tools
  • Active learning techniques
  • Grant proposal writing
Formatting Instructions:

Tutorial abstracts are included in the proceedings of the conference. Please follow the instructions below, except that you should use a 12pt font instead of the word-processor default if it is different:
