  Call for Tutorials for ICDAR 2024

The ICDAR 2024 Organizing Committee invites proposals for tutorials that 
will be held on August 30th to September 4th (the correct final date 
will be communicated as soon as possible), before the main conference 

*Important Dates*

|Proposals Due: Nov. 30, 2023 Acceptance Notification: Dec. 23, 2023 
Dates of Tutorials: Aug. 30 - Sep. 4, 2024 |

ICDAR 2024 Tutorials should serve one or more of the following objectives:

  * Introduce students and newcomers to major topics of Document
    Analysis and Recognition (DAR) research.
  * Provide instructions on established practices and methodologies.
  * Introduce expert non-specialists to a DAR subarea. Survey a mature
    area of DAR research and/or practice.
  * Motivate and explain a DAR topic of emerging importance.
  * Overview DAR systems for industrial solutions (suggestion for
    researchers in industry).
  * Introduce some recent innovative techniques for DAR research and
    software quality, such as open-source libraries, high-level API,
    technical frameworks for expert developments, etc. (suggestion for
    expert programmers).

An ICDAR tutorial should aim to give a comprehensive overview of a 
specific topic related to DAR. A good tutorial should be educational 
rather than just a cursory survey of techniques. The topic should be of 
sufficient relevance and importance to attract significant interest from 
the ICDAR community. Typical tutorial audiences consist of PhD students 
studying computer vision, image processing or pattern recognition, but 
also include researchers and practitioners from both academia and 
industry. In order to facilitate innovative collaboration and 
interaction between researchers in academia and industry, the Tutorial 
Chairs strongly encourage proposals for industrial tutorials, in which 
researchers in companies describe DAR systems and overview industrial 
solutions to document analysis problems in real use-case industrial 

Proposals should be up to 4 pages in length, and should contain the 
following information:

  * Title of the tutorial.
  * Scope and motivation. A brief description of the tutorial, suitable
    for inclusion in the conference registration brochure.
  * Preference for the duration (full day or half day). Due to agenda
    constraints, half day tutorials are recommended. If a full day is
    needed,provide a brief justification.
  * A detailed outline of the tutorial. Course description with list of
    topics to be covered, along with a brief outline.
  * Relevance for ICDAR. A description of why the tutorial topic would
    be of interest to a substantial part of the ICDAR audience.
  * Expected target audience in terms of composition and estimated
    number of attendees. Prerequisite knowledge of the ICDAR audience
    for attending the tutorial.
  * Short CV of organizers. A brief CV of the presenter(s), including
    name, postal address, phone number, e-mail address, web page,
    background in the tutorial area (projects, relevant publications or
    tutorial-level articles on the subject), evidence of teaching
  * The name and e-mail address of the corresponding presenter. The
    corresponding presenter should be available for e-mail
    correspondence during the evaluation process, in the case
    clarifications and discussions on the scope and content of the
    proposal are needed.

The evaluation of the proposal will take into account its general 
interest for ICDAR attendees, the quality of the proposal (e.g., a 
tutorial that simply lists a set of concepts without any apparent 
rationale behind them will not be approved) as well as the expertise and 
skills of the presenters. We emphasize that the primary criteria for 
evaluation will be whether a proposal is interesting, well-structured, 
and motivated in relation to Document Analysis and Recognition, rather 
than the perceived experience/standing of the proposer. Last but not 
least, the tutorial should attract a meaningful audience, cover hot 
topics and incorporate new knowledge to the community. Those submitting 
a proposal should keep in mind that tutorials are intended to provide an 
overview of the field; they should present reasonably well established 
information in a balanced way. Tutorials should not be used to advocate 
a single avenue of research, nor should they promote a product.

Tutorial slides must be provided to us for inclusion on the conference 
website and also on the TC-10 and TC-11 websites, as educational 
material. The ICDAR main conference organizers will handle the tutorial 
registration and provide the space, coffee breaks and other facilities 
required to organize tutorials (e.g. a room, a projector and a screen).

*Submission Guidelines & Inquiries*
All proposals should be submitted by electronic mail to the Tutorial 
Chairs: - Alicia Fornes afornes at cvc.uab.es - Vincent Christlein 
vincent.christlein at fau.de

Feedback, comments and/or suggestions would be provided within two weeks 
of receiving the proposal. Final acceptance (or rejection) would be 
decided by December 23, 2023.
Inquiries should be sent to tutorials-chairs at icdar2024.net or the above
