Call for Tutorials

The IEEE Symposia on Human Centric Computing Languages and Environments stems from the Visual Language Symposium experience. It will be a forum for dissemination of basic as well as applied up-to-date culture on design, formalization, implementation, and evaluation of computing languages and environments that are easy to learn, easy to use, and easy to understand by a broader community of people. Maintaining the tradition of the VL Symposia and last year's first HCC, a tutorial program, bringing attendees in direct contact with scholars and designers in the field will be an essential part of the Symposia.

We are now looking for highly qualified persons to present half-day tutorials.

Examples of topics include but are not limited to:

There will be two half-day tutorials, which will be offered on Friday, September 6. The tutorials will run from 8:30 AM until 1:00 PM, with a mid-morning coffee break. We will be offering tutorial speakers an honorarium of $500, plus free conference registration.

If you would be interested in organizing a tutorial, please e-mail a short (2-3 pages when printed) proposal to the Tutorials Chair, Joe Pfeiffer, containing the following information:

  1. Name and affiliation of the proposer/organizer (including contact information: address, telephone, e-mail, fax)
