Call for tutorial proposals

The call for tutorial proposals has closed. Details of accepted tutorials will be posted here once available.

SST2022 is pleased to invite proposals for tutorials to be given in conjunction with the conference. Tutorials are intensive instructional sessions that provide a comprehensive introduction to established or emerging research topics of interest to the SST community.

The ideal tutorial should be broad enough to provide a basic introduction to the chosen area, but it should also cover some important topics in depth. Tutorials will be half day (3 hours), and should be planned to allow for a remote attendance option.

Proposal format and submission
Tutorial proposals should not exceed 2 pages, and should contain the following information:
1) Title and abstract of the tutorial for inclusion on the SST2022 website (200 words maximum).
2) Tutorial description:
– learning objectives of the tutorial and relevance to SST2022;
– a brief outline of the tutorial structure;
– targeted audience (introductory, intermediate, advanced) and prerequisite knowledge or skills, and required equipment (e.g. laptop) for attendees;
3) Name, email address, affiliation and brief biography (80 words) of each tutorial instructor(s), indicating any previous relevant experience.

Deadline for tutorial proposals: 8 April 2022
Proposals should be submitted to

Organisers of accepted tutorials are responsible for preparing the materials for attendees. The SST2022 Organising Committee will provide publicity for the tutorials as part of the conference publicity activities, and some on-site logistical support to the tutorial organisers and attendees. Note that the tutorial day is expected to be December 13th, on campus at the Australian National University in the same venue as for the main conference.

Evaluation Criteria
All proposals will be reviewed by the SST2022 Organising Committee, according to:
– ability of the tutorial to contribute to strengthening the foundations of SST-related research;
– clarity of the tutorial, which should emerge from its description;
– good structure/organisation;
– background/experience of tutorial instructor(s) in teaching the target topics.
