Tutorials Track

ICPE enhances the experience of attending researchers and industry practitioners through a Tutorial Track led by renowned scientists and practitioners in the fields of relevance for the ICPE community. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, performance measurement, performance modeling, benchmarking, and run-time performance management of complex systems of all types.

Proposals are welcomed for tutorials at introductory, intermediate, and advanced skill-levels, that either span a full day (6 hours, two breaks included), or a half-day (3 hours, one break included).


Proposal guidelines

The tutorial proposal (maximum 5 pages) should describe concisely the content, importance and timeliness of the tutorial. It should include the following information:

  • Title
  • 150 to 200-word abstract describing the tutorial, that is suitable for inclusion on the conference website
  • Contact information (name, e-mail, affiliation) and a brief biography (up to 200 words) of the presenter(s)
  • Proposed duration (half-day (3 hours) or full-day (6 hours))
  • Intended audience skill level (beginner, intermediate, advanced) and any prerequisite knowledge required
  • Outline of the tutorial (overall goal and concrete objectives, teaching method and structure)
  • The link between the tutorial and the ICPE topics of interest (a sentence or paragraph)
  • If appropriate, a description of past versions of the tutorial should be provided. It should be indicated where the tutorial has been given (venue, date, number of attendees ) and how it will be modified for ICPE 2018


Submission process

Submissions are made via EasyChair.

Submission deadlines are listed on the important dates page.

Authors of accepted tutorial proposals are expected to prepare a set of slides to be distributed to participants, including a bibliography pertinent to the tutorial. The camera-ready set of slides should be submitted as a PDF file with two slides per page. Proposers of accepted tutorials will be given the opportunity to also submit a tutorial paper, which will appear in the conference proceedings. The content of a tutorial paper must be on the material covered by the tutorial and must not exceed 4 pages in size using the ACM format. Authors are required to adhere to the ACM Policy and Procedures on Plagiarism as well as to the ACM Policy on Prior Publication and Simultaneous Submissions.
