Call for Tutorial Proposals

The ISCAS 2022 Organizing Committee invites proposals for Tutorials to be held during the 2022 IEEE International Symposium on Circuits and Systems in ISCAS 2022 Website(Virtual) and Austin, Texas, USA(On-site & Virtual) from 28 May till 1 June 2022. Tutorials will be presented on-site only.

Tutorials offer participants from different technical backgrounds the chance to explore innovative trends and learn new techniques from experts in the field. There will be two forms of tutorials at ISCAS 2022;   full-day tutorials and half-day tutorials (morning or afternoon) and will be held on May 29, 2022. A half-day tutorial lasts four hours and it is composed of two didactic modules of 2 hours each (1.5 hours for presentation, plus 15 mins for Q&As and 15 mins for a break) covering complementary aspects of the topic. A full-day tutorial covers more material for the proposed subject, delivered in a four-hour morning session and a four-hour afternoon session, each one individually structured like a half-day tutorial.

Participation in tutorials and technical meetings is an excellent opportunity for lifelong learning, and ISCAS 2022 is committed to supporting your professional development. Continuing Education Units (CEUs) will be available for ISCAS delegates participating in tutorials or attending technical sessions.

Suitable tutorial topics range from emerging research areas to established techniques of practical and industrial relevance within the scope of the Circuits and Systems Society.

Tutorial Proposals Submission Guidelines

Please submit tutorial proposals by email to the Tutorial Co-Chairs (John Khoury (John.Khoury@silabs.com) and Gabriele Manganaro (Gabriele.Manganaro@mediatek.com) ), by Dec. 20, 2021. The proposal should include a two-page (maximum) description of the tutorial (see below for details) and one-page professional biographies of the tutorial speakers that highlight their qualifications and track records in the proposed subject area of the tutorial. The proposal needs to contain the following information:

1. Format of the Tutorial

Full-day or Half-day.

2. Title and Abstract

Propose a title and an abstract that allows conference attendees to quickly and accurately understand the subject matter of the tutorial.

3. Motivation and Focus

Explain why your topic is important to the ISCAS community and what you hope the participants will learn by attending your tutorial. In this section, please provide a syllabus outlining the contents of the tutorial and the learning                                    outcomes. This syllabus should be realistic, given the time available.

4. List of Speakers

This is in addition to the tutorial organizers. Some tutorials may feature different speakers that should be advertised, but it is not necessary, nor a requirement. For instance, a full-day tutorial may have, at most, four different speakers,                       while a half-day tutorial could have up to two speakers. If you plan to have multiple speakers, please provide their names and affiliations and clearly describe the parts of the tutorial that they will cover.

5. Basic Structure of the Tutorial

In this section, please describe your use of the time available. (e.g., morning lectures: fundamentals and case studies; afternoon panel discussion or brain-storming sessions, etc.).

 

Authors of each of the two most successful tutorials will be invited to write a corresponding overview paper in the Circuits and Systems Magazine or in the IEEE Transactions on Circuits and System – Part I: Regular Papers, or IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems II: Express Briefs (TCAS-II).
