CyberSciTech 2017 Call for Tutorials

The 2017 IEEE Cyber Science and Technology Congress (CyberSciTech 2017) provides a common platform for scientists, researchers and engineers to exchange their latest ideas and outcomes in research, technology and science. It is also the venue to exchange the latest advances in cyberspace studies with its broad scope of cyber-related sciences, technologies and applications topics. It will be held jointly with the 15th IEEE International Conference on Dependable, Autonomic and Secure Computing (DASC 2017); the 15th IEEE International Conference on Pervasive Intelligence and Computing (PICom 2017); and the 3rd IEEE International Conference on Big Data Intelligence and Computing (DataCom 2017). In addition to the technical program, the congress will also feature tutorials and panels.

CyberSciTech 2017 welcomes proposals for short and long tutorials from active researchers and experienced tutors. Ideally, a tutorial will cover the state-of-the-art research, development and applications in new cyber-related sciences, technologies and applications. Examples include, but are not limited to (1) cyber science and fundamentals, (2) cyber physical computing and systems, (3) cyber social networks and computing, as well as (4) cyber mind and mental computing. High preference will be given towards tutorials on interdisciplinary directions, novel and emerging new cyber-enabled sciences, technologies and applications for the better society.

A proposal should cover the following items.

  1. Title
  2. Abstract (up to 150 words)
  3. Target audience and prerequisites (up to 100 words)
  4. A list of forums with their time, locations and estimate of the number of attendees if the tutorial or a similar/highly related tutorial has been presented by the same authors before, and highlight the similarity/difference between those and the one proposed for CyberSciTech 2017 (up to 150 words for each entry)
  5. A list of tutorials on the same/similar/highly related topics given by other people, and highlight the difference between yours and theirs (up to 150 words for each entry)
  6. A list of other tutorials given by the authors, please list the titles, the presenters, the forums, locations and estimate of the number of attendees only
  7. Authors’ short bio and their expertise related to the tutorial (up to 150 words per tutor)
  8. An outline of the tutorial in the form of a bullet list (up to one page)
  9. Length of the tutorial: short (1.5-2 hours) or long (3-4 hours).
  10. A list of up to 25 most important references that will be covered in the tutorial
  11. Any specific audio/video/computer requirements for the tutorial
  12. URLs of the slides/notes of the previous tutorials given by the authors

Please email your proposals to the tutorial chairs at cyberscitechcongress AT gmail DOT com. Please use “CyberSciTech 2017 tutorial proposal” as the email subject. Tutorial proposals must be submitted electronically by February 28, 2017. Early submission is encouraged. Selection results will be announced after review, not later than March 15, 2017.
