ICDE 2012 invites submissions for seminar proposals on all topics covered by the conference. Seminars are similar to tutorials in other conferences. The conference will host one- and two-session seminars, lasting 1.5 and 3 hours, respectively.
Seminar proposals must include an abstract, an outline, a description of the target audience, a preferred duration (1.5 or 3 hours), and a short biography of the presenters. Proposals should be, roughly, two to four-pages long and should include enough information to provide a clear sense of the proposed scope and depth of coverage of the targeted topics. If a proposed seminar has been presented elsewhere, the proposal should indicate the venue, number of attendees, and a pointer to the slides of the earlier presentation(s), and specify what, if anything, would be different at ICDE 2012. Seminar proposals should be submitted via email to firstname.lastname@example.org by July 20, 2011. The selection will be made by the seminar chair in consultation with the program committee chairs and local organization. The notification date for the outcome of the selection process by the Seminar Chair is October 21, 2011. The slides of accepted seminars will be made available to the ICDE 2012 participants; the deadline for the final version of the slides of accepted seminars is February 17, 2012.
