Call for Tutorials
Deadline: Monday, April 5, 2021.
The MWSCAS 2021 organizing committee invites proposals for tutorials to be presented during the 2021 IEEE 64th International Midwest Symposium on Circuits and Systems in East Lansing, MI, USA. (The Symposium has pivoted to be fully virtual online to add certainty in these uncertain time, and to help us all focus on learning and acquiring new knowledge with help of the convenient CONFlux Virtual Platform.)
Tutorials offer attendees the opportunity to learn from experts in the field new domains or refresh their knowledge . All tutorials will be held on Sunday, August 8, 2021 before the formal start of the symposium on (August 9-11, 2021). This year there will be two types of tutorials at MWSCAS 2021: half-day or full-day tutorials. Half-day tutorials will be held during the morning or afternoon sessions, while full-fay will span the full-day (9-12, 1:30-4:30pm). All participants will be offered a Continuing Education Units (CEUs) as part of their professional development upon request.
Proposals for Tutorials in all areas of the circuits and systems disciplines are welcome. Special solicitation are made for tutorials on the main themes of the symposium this year: artificial intelligence (AI) and autonomous circuits and systems, and solutions to consequences of the COVID-19, from detection, testing to predictions. The key indicator of success of Tutorials will be the interest of the wide community/attendees enrolling during registration.
Tutorial chairs invite you to submit proposals via the form below or via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. The proposal should include a two-page description of the tutorial and about one-page biography for each of the presenters which highlight their track-record in the proposed domain. Please include the following.
Format: Full-day or half-day (2 or 3 hrs, Morning or Afternoon preference).
Title and abstract: a concise description of the area(s) and the targeted audience.
Motivation: Why is this subject timely and relevant for the 2021 MWSCAS. What audience are expected? What will the participants learn? List of topics covered in the tutorial i.e., a short syllabus with timeline.
The structure and outline of the tutorial and its presentation flow.
- List of speaker(s): If your tutorial has multiple presenters, please highlight the domains each speaker will present.
The proposal will be reviewed by a panel of experts for quality and timeliness for the broader Circuits & Systems community. Selected proposals will be posted on the Symposium website by the timeline. Tutorials that attract attendees’ interest will be presented.
Tutorial attendees will be asked at the end of each tutorial to rate the following attributes: (a) Effectiveness, (b) Clarity, and (c) Organization. The tutorial with the highest ratings will be invited to write a corresponding overview tutorial to be included as part of the proceedings on IEEExplore.
