  Submission of Tutorial Proposals

Tutorials are dedicated to an in-depth treatment of special topics and interests in medical informatics. Each session of Tutorials include two hours of instruction. The Scientific Program Committee seeks a balance between tutorials that address core informatics theory and principles, with those that address practical applications, current issues and emerging trends and developments in informatics. Tutorials range from the general introductory level through specialized or advanced level. Instructors should be available to give their tutorial on October 27th afternoon. Compensations for instructors will depend on amount of registered attendee. Tutorial proposals must not exceed maximum of two [21.0 x 29.7 cm : A4 size] camera-ready pages and must include:

  • An opening summary of 250 to 300 words.
  • A general description of the content of the tutorial.
  • An outline of topics to be covered.
  • Specific educational goals that attendees can expect to achieve.
  • A description of who should attend.
  • An indication of the level of content (percentage of basic, intermediate, and advanced material covered).
  • A description of prerequisites, if any.
  • A list of similar tutorials, courses, or workshops presented by the instructors at a major informatics or other conference.
