Call for Tutorials
SIGIR 2010 will begin with a full day of tutorials on July 19, 2010.

Proposals are solicited for tutorials of either a half-day (3 hours plus 
breaks) or full day (6 hours plus breaks) on all topics of information 
retrieval and its applications. Each tutorial should cover a single 
topic in detail. For example, tutorials may cover an information 
retrieval topic in depth, introduce an emerging application for 
retrieval technologies, or update the information retrieval community on 
recent advances in related fields.

Submissions should include a cover sheet and an extended abstract.
The cover sheet should specify: (1) the title and length of the 
tutorial; (2) the intended audience (introductory, intermediate, 
advanced) and prerequisite knowledge or skills required, if any; (3) 
complete contact information for the contact person and other 
presenters; and (4) a brief biography (max. 2 paragraphs) for each 
presenter. The extended abstract should be 3 to 4 pages, and should 
include an outline of the tutorial, along with descriptions of the 
course objectives, its relevance to the information retrieval community, 
and course materials.

Tutorial proposals in PDF format must be sent via email by February 12, 
2010 to the Tutorial Chair, Djoerd Hiemstra, using the following email 
address: tutorials at sigir2010.org. The submissions will undergo peer 
review and tutorials to be presented will be selected by the SIGIR 
Program Committee. Notifications will be send out by 24 March, 2010.

Important Dates:

12 February 2010 : Tutorial proposals due.
24 March 2010 :    Acceptance notifications
