Submitting a Successful Tutorial Proposal to XSEDE16

The EasyChair submission site is open:

The proposal for tutorials should include abstract and draft slides. The draft slides do not need to be final, but are very important in enabling the reviewers to evaluate the content, quality and length of the material. Proposals that include hands-on exercises are usually preferred. Authors who have presented a tutorial at XSEDE15 should look at their review at: and, if appropriate, incorporate the suggested improvements.

Please specify:

  • Duration of the tutorial: quarter day, half day or full day.
  • Contingency plans for the hands-on sessions in case the internet goes down.
  • Pre-requisites (laptops, software to be installed in advance, etc.).
  • Intended audience.

Reviewers will evaluate the proposal based on the following criteria:

  • Quality.
  • Is the estimated length adequate?
  • Is there a carefully planned hands-on session included in the proposal?
  • Is the proposal adequate for the intended audience (beginner, intermediate or advanced).
  • Is the proposal likely to be of interest to a wide audience, or on a subject that is novel and relevant for the advancement of the community?
