VLDB 2021: Call for Contributions - Tutorials

VLDB 2021 invites submissions for tutorial proposals on all topics of potential interest to the conference attendees. Tutorial proposals should cover state-of-the-art research, development, and applications in specific data management related areas, and stimulate and facilitate future work. Tutorials on interdisciplinary directions, bridging scientific research and applied communities, novel and fast-growing directions, and significant applications are highly encouraged. We encourage tutorials in areas that may be different from the usual VLDB mainstream, but still very much related to VLDB mission and objectives of managing big data. We also encourage tutorials that apply advanced Machine Learning techniques to solve data management problems, and will be directly inviting a small number of tutorials from neighboring scientific communities. Tutorials should be targeted for a broader audience, and they must focus neither excessively, nor exclusively, on the authors’ own work.

Accepted Tutorials

Presentation slides will be made available to VLDB 2021 participants and will be published on the VLDB website. We require the tutorial presenters to put online a webpage that provides links to all reasonably drafted slides and references before the conference starts, for publication at the conference website. A four-page extended abstract, with an overview including bibliographic references, will appear in PVLDB’s VLDB 2021 issue. The camera-ready format version should be an updated version of the original submission that addresses suggestions from the tutorial chairs and possibly other reviewers. Authors must agree to standard PVLDB copyright releases for the tutorial abstract overview as well as for their slides. Authors will retain the rights to reuse all their material in any form. If the proposal is accepted, at least one of the authors listed in the proposal is expected to attend VLDB 2021 and present the tutorial.
