Call for Tutorials

SBBD 2018 invites the Brazilian database community to submit tutorial proposals. Each tutorial will be presented in a 2 hours session. Only an abstract (1-2 pages) of the accepted tutorials, including bibliographic references, will be published in the symposium proceedings. However, copies of the presentation slides will also be required before the event for distribution to the tutorial attendees.

We will consider proposals for introductory and advanced tutorials on any topic within the area of databases. Introductory tutorials should target an audience consisting of advanced undergraduate and graduate students, as well as attendees from industry. Hence, they can be thought of as “recycling” courses though they should not be about traditional “textbook” topics. Advanced tutorials must cover a topic’s state-of-the-art, motivating and exposing potential research issues.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR AUTHORS
Proposals must be of no more than 5 pages, using Times New Roman, 12pt font, and must include the following items (in this order):
– Tutorial title, authors’ name, affiliations, e-mails and URL of the respective home pages (if available)
– If the proposed tutorial has been given previously, where this tutorial has been presented before and how it will be modified for SBBD 2018
– Tutorial type (introductory or advanced)
– The intended audience and its assumed background
– The language in which the tutorial will be presented (English or Portuguese)
– An abstract (no more the 100 words) stating the tutorial’s main goal
– Outline of the tutorial (list of topics and brief description of how these are to be covered)

– The name of whom will present the tutorial, in case of a tutorial is proposed by more than one author
