Important dates


As an experiment, GPCE and SLE organize a joint tutorial day on Sunday, October 10.

The day will consist of a single plenary track with about six lectures about topics of interest to the audience of GPCE and SLE.

The lectures will be about an hour in length; much longer than a regular conference talk, but much shorter than the customary half or even full day tutorials at other conferences.

In contrast to research talks, tutorials do not (have to) present original new research material, but should rather focus on putting research into perspective for a broader audience.

In contrast to longer tutorials, these lectures cannot be very interactive or rely on the audience participating by using tools. Rather they should aim to be 'keynote' style presentations, emphasizing the essence (but not avoiding depth).

Another difference is that we will not charge separately for each tutorial, as this appears to be the reason for low attendance of tutorials at academic conferences. We will charge a single, low fee for the entire day that gives access to all tutorials and the FOSD workshop that will be held in parallel. We hope that this will ensure high impact of the tutorials. Tutorial presenters get free admission to the tutorials day, but due to the low fee we will not be able to provide a honorarium; if the day is successful, we will consider sharing any profits with tutorial presenters.


If you are interested in presenting a tutorial at GPCE/SLE, please send a short proposal (about two pages) to by July 6, 2010. The proposal should consist of

  1. title
  2. abstract (250 words)
  3. name of presenter
  4. short bio (250 words)
  5. brief outline of tutorial
  6. relevance for GPCE/SLE audience

Items 1 to 4 should be usable on the website.

We will make a selection of tutorials based on relevance (topic-wise) for the conference and expected interest in the tutorial. Tutorial proposers will be notified of the decision by August 6, 2010.
