Call for Tutorials
The APSEC 2023 Tutorials track aims to provide participants with the opportunity to gain new insights, knowledge, and technical skills in a broad range of areas of software engineering.
We welcome proposals for tutorials on any topic related to software engineering. A tutorial may describe a software engineering activity (for example, the state-of-the-art in program analysis or automated test data generation), or it may describe a method or a technique that can be used in software engineering research and/or practice (for example, Natural Language Processing, grounded theory, or causal inference).
Tutorials at APSEC are intended to provide independent instruction on topics that are relevant to software engineering practitioners and researchers. Therefore, no commercial or sales-oriented presentations will be accepted.
Potential tutorial presenters should note that the audience can have varying levels of expertise, ranging from novice graduate students to seasoned practitioners and researchers. A proposal should clearly indicate whether the proposed tutorial is prepared for the wide range of audiences, or for a specific subgroup within the community. Also, bear in mind that not everyone will have English as their first language. We strongly recommend that presenters should provide comprehensive notes written in clear, standard English: idioms, irony, slang, and culture-specific references should be avoided.
Tutorials will be held on 4th December 2023. Each tutorial is minimum 120 minutes, maximum 240 minutes (with a break).
Proposal submissions should follow this structure:
- Title of the tutorial
- Name, affiliation, and email address of the presenter(s)
- Abstract (max 300 words), suitable for posting on the conference website
- Tutorial aims and objectives
- Intended audience and required background
- Relevance: please justify why this tutorial would be of interest to a broad section of the software engineering community
- Outline of the topics covered by the tutorial, with approximate timing
- Presenter’s bio: 250-word bio of the presenter(s), stressing their qualification with respect to the tutorial topic
- Tutorial history: list of previous editions of the tutorial (if any), including the dates, the venue, and the number of attendees.
- Audio-visual and technical requirements
- The proposal (excluding the sample slides) should be no longer than three (3) pages and must conform to the official IEEE Manuscript Template. LaTeX users must use
The proposal, as well as the sample slides, should be submitted via email to the Tutorial Co-Chairs.
The Tutorial committee will review each proposal and will select quality proposals that fit the evaluation criteria. Each proposal will be evaluated on its anticipated benefit for prospective participants and its fit within the program as a whole. Factors to be considered include: relevance, timeliness, importance, audience appeal; suitability for presentation in a 180-minute format; effectiveness of teaching methods; past experience, and qualifications of the instructors.
- Submission deadline: Friday, 25th August 2023 (23:59 AoE)
