Call for tutorials

Call for Tutorials

ISMIR 2019 is pleased to invite proposals for tutorials to be given in conjunction with the conference. The first day of ISMIR 2019 (November  4, 2019) will consist of parallel sessions of tutorials, each lasting  three hours and concentrating on a single topic. The tutorials are presented either at an introductory level or in depth and are intended  to provide an informative and stimulating coverage of current topics in MIR and beyond.

Tutorial proposals should consist of a 2–4 page abstract including the following:

- Title
- Outline of the tutorial content
- Intended and expected audience
- Short biography of the presenters
- Any special requirements
- Contact information

The proposals should be submitted as a PDF attachment via email to by March 12, 2019.
Acceptance/rejection decisions will be made by the ISMIR 2019 Tutorial  Chairs and will be notified by April 26, 2019. The decision will depend on the following criteria:

- relevance (i.e. of interest to the whole community or only a segment thereof)
- suitability to generally knowledgeable students in MIR rather than specialists
- quality
- comprehensiveness / coverage
- originality of topics with respect to previous ISMIR tutorials
- novelty of authors with respect to previous ISMIR tutorials
- expertise of authors
- foster complementarity of tutorials
- foster open source and free software tools/data, reproducible research

Please note that the conference organization cannot offer financial support for tutorial presenters.
