The IJCAI-97 Program Committee invites proposals for the Tutorial Program for IJCAI-97, which is to be held in Nagoya, Japan, August 23-29, 1997. Tutorials will be held in the period of August 24-25, immediately prior to the start of the main conference.

Tutorials will be offered both on standard topics and on new and more advanced topics. A list of suggested topics that can be covered by tutorials is given below, but this list is only a guide. Other topics, will be considered:

Requirements for Submission

Anyone interested in presenting a tutorial should submit a proposal to the IJCAI-97 Tutorial Chair, Prof. Bernhard Nebel. A tutorial proposal should contain the following information: Those submitting a proposal should keep in mind that tutorials are intended to provide an overview of the field; they should present reasonably well established information in a balanced way. Tutorials should not be used to advocate a single avenue of research, nor should they promote a product.


Proposals must be received by October 21, 1996. Decisions about topics and speakers will be made by November 20, 1996. Accepted tutorial presenters must provide title and abstract for their tutorial, and a brief biography and photograph for publicity, by December 13, 1996. They will then be sent a set of guidelines for the preparation of course materials, which will be due May 1, 1997. Please note that IJCAI will normally only duplicate up to 200 pages per participant.

IJCAI reserves the right to cancel any tutorial if deadlines are missed, or if the number of registered attendees at the tutorial is too low to support the costs associated with running the tutorial.

Proposals should be sent to:
