Requirements for Submission
Anyone interested in presenting a tutorial should submit a proposal to

A tutorial proposal should contain the following information:
Those submitting a proposal should keep in mind that tutorials are

available, background in the tutorial area, any available example
of work in the area (ideally, a published tutorial-level article
on the subject), evidence of teaching experience (including
references that address the proposer's presentation ability), and
evidence of scholarship in AI/Computer Science (equivalent to a
published IJCAI conference paper or tutorial syllabus).
Proposals must be received by October 21, 1996.
Decisions about topics and speakers will be made by November 20,
