Proposal to Tutorial to Presentation

 Proposal to Tutorial to Presentation

Author Handbook:  Please review and keep this valuable guide handy as you work through the Tutorial Proposal and Presentation process.

 Stage One:  The Tutorial Proposal As a prospective tutorial presenter, you will submit an abstract, topical outline, and a set of learning objectives. Note: tutorial authors do not submit papers.

Tutorial Submission Site (deadline 1 March)

Stage Two: The Draft Tutorial Presentation
  • If your tutorial proposal is selected for expansion into a presentation, you will be assigned a birddog, who will be your liaison to the Tutorial Board and be a champion for your presentation at the July Review. You will submit a draft set of presentation slides for review.. Your draft tutorial will be submitted via the same portal as your Abstract as above, using the same login and password. Clearance Release Form will be submitted with your presentation through the online portal, start early!

        Individual Files:
             Authors Handbook             
             Tutorial Presenters Guide
             Tutorial Template 
             AV Requirements Form
             SAMPLE Clearance Form*
            *(Actual forms must be downloaded from Submission site while uploading Tutorial)

*Why start so early on the Clearance Form? Here's a message from one submitter: " For ...., we are not permitted to submit the paper without public release being completed.  They claim (and I see their perspective) that it is available to 150 people once submitted and that collection is still “public”.  We started four weeks prior to the original submission date to get corporate and government customer approvals and those are just starting to trickle in."

Stage Three: The Final Tutorial Presentation
If your presentation is selected for I/ITSEC , you will receive birddog feedback and then you will submit a final tutorial for presentation, your final tutorial will be submitted via the same portal as your abstract/draft tutorial, using the same login and password.
