Call for Tutorials @ The 11th International Conference on Computational Creativity (ICCC'20)
June 29 – July 3 2020, Coimbra, Portugal

Tutorials held during 29th - 30th June

The 11th International Conference on Computational Creativity (ICCC) is looking for tutorial proposals to be held along with the main conference in the historic town of Coimbra, Portugal on June 29th (full day) and 30th (morning) 2020. We welcome proposals covering between one and four 120-minute sessions, and addressing any aspect of computational creativity research. Each proposal will be evaluated by independent reviewers.

Tutorials are a great opportunity to benefit the wider community, to raise awareness of a topic, and a chance to drive broader adoption of e.g. your system or method. A tutorial can offer attendees to (i) explore new methods, techniques, and practices, (ii) develop new skills in order to innovate, or (iii) become inspired to pursue new ideas. We welcome any format, but generally encourage opportunities for the audience to interact with the taught subject. 

We expect tutorials to provide clear practical value to the intended audience and to be accessible given basic knowledge of computational creativity research. A tutorial could:
- Introduce the audience to emerging areas, new technologies and methods for computational creativity research;
- Provide a substantial overview of state-of-the-art research on a certain topic;
- Raise and discuss ethical and societal implications of computational creativity;
- Provide meta-skills, such as writing papers and grant proposals, making research videos, giving presentations, etc.

You are welcome to contact the tutorial chair to discuss your ideas before submitting a full proposal (email below). 

The ICCC’20 local team is likely going to offer live streaming technology and support to tutorial organisers, so that all content and discussions can be recorded and shared. We also provide student volunteers where needed, e.g. to support interactive sessions. 

In an effort to encourage fresh perspectives, we offer a limited amount of conference fee waivers for tutorial (co-)organisers who have not previously presented at ICCC or engaged with the ICCC community. Decisions will be made on a case-by-case basis.

*** Important dates ***
Tutorial proposal submissions due: March 1st, 2020.

Organisers are invited to submit their proposals earlier than the deadline and request an earlier response.

Notification of Tutorial acceptance: May 1st, 2020, with earlier acceptance possible at the chairs’ discretion.

*** Submission Instructions ***
Please submit a PDF proposal of no more than 3 pages detailing the following:
- Title and theme of tutorial;
- Organising committee (including affiliations);
- Tutorial aim (also covering why the topic covered matters to computational creativity), thematic scope (depth and breadth of coverage), format (interactive vs. non-interactive), and a rough timeline;
- Desired duration (number of 120 minute sessions);
- Target audience and key takeaways for attendees;
- A description of your promotional strategy for attracting attendees (next to advertising it as part of the conference programme);
- Any technical or space requirements (e.g., projector, PA, whiteboards);
- Whether you require a student volunteer, and for what task(s);
- Whether you would like your tutorial to be streamed;
- Whether or not you are applying for a conference fee waiver to support a tutorial organiser who has not previously engaged with ICCC and its community.

Please email your submission as a single PDF file of no more than 5MB to tutorials-iccc20@computationalcreativity.net

*** Tutorial Chair ***
Christian Guckelsberger, Queen Mary University of London, United Kingdom
