CALL FOR Tutorials-ICML/COLT '97

Nashville, Tennessee

Tuesday July 8, 1997

Tutorials for both the International Conference on Machine Learning and the Conference on Computational Learning Theory will take place during ICML and COLT, which will be co-located at Vanderbilt University during the week of July 6-12, 1997. We invite tutorials in all areas related to the theoretical and/or experimental study of machine learning. We also invite tutorials from other disciplines engaged in research in closely related fields such as statistics, information theory, pattern recognition, statistical physics, and information retrieval. Tutorials should be introductory in nature and geared towards the broadest audience possible. Further, tutorials are expected to introduce a broad body of research, rather than focusing solely on the tutorial presenter's own personal research.

Submission: Send a 2 page description of your proposed tutorial that provides the following information.

The proposal (or any questions you have) can be sent electronically to ( Alternatively, a hard copy of your proposal can be sent to:
Dr. Sally Goldman

Telephone (for overnight mail): (314) 935-7545
All proposals must be received by FRIDAY FEBRUARY 7, 1997. (We also will accept proposals sent via air mail and postmarked by January 29, or sent via overnight carrier by February 6.) Tutorials will be chosen based on anticipated interest in the topic at COLT and ICML, and in such a manner as to create balanced and broad coverage of topics. The final tutorial schedule will be announced on or before Friday, March 7, 1997.

We hope to offer some form of partial financial support for tutorial organizers.
