The AAMAS 2020 Organizing Committee invites proposals for the Tutorial
Program to be held on 9th and 10th May 2020, immediately before the
technical conference. AAMAS 2020 Tutorials should serve one or more of the

   - Provide instruction in established practices and methodologies.
   - Introduce novices to major topics of AAMAS research.
   - Provide instruction in established practices and methodologies.
   - Survey a mature area of AAMAS research or practice.
   - Motivate and explain an AAMAS topic of emerging importance.
   - Introduce expert non-specialists to an AAMAS area.
   - Survey an area of agent research especially relevant for people from
   - Present a novel synthesis combining distinct lines of AAMAS work.
   - Introduce AAMAS audiences to an external topic that can motivate or

Topic areas of interest include all of those listed in the call for the
technical track (see
https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__aamas2020.conference.auckland.ac.nz_call-2Dfor-2Dpapers_&d=DwIFaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=2UF06_F-65lg8SyfrwGF8jcYnDXmlACFbhb4Hz4wvio&s=YjMWyNelho_RSXnfQtSGuAeqR2iR4lATTZo9iLZq3eE&e= ), including
the special tracks. Tutorials will be half day long. A few full day
tutorials may be accepted, but the proponents need to motivate their
request when submitting their proposal.
Submission Requirements

Those interested in presenting a tutorial should email their proposal to
one of the tutorial chairs (see below). Proposals should be two to four
pages in length, formatted using the AAMAS paper template, and should
contain the following information:

   - A short title of the tutorial.
   - A brief description of the tutorial, suitable for inclusion in the
   conference registration brochure.
   - A detailed outline of the tutorial, including preferred length (half
   or full day).
   - Characterization of the potential target audience for the tutorial,
   including prerequisite knowledge.
   - A description of why the tutorial topic would be of interest to a
   substantial part of the AAMAS audience.
   - A brief resume of the presenter(s), which should include name, postal
   address, phone numbers, email address, background in the tutorial area, any
   available example of work in the area (ideally, a published tutorial-level
   article on the subject), evidence of teaching experience (including
   references that address the proposer’s presentation skills as applicable),
   and evidence of scholarship in the area. Information about previous
   tutorials delivered by the presenters (if any).
   - The name and e-mail address of the corresponding presenter. The
   corresponding presenter should be available for e-mail correspondence
   during the evaluation process, in the case clarifications and discussions
   on the scope and content of the proposal are needed.
   - The evaluation of the proposal will take into account the level of
   general interest for AAMAS attendees, the quality of the proposal, and the
   expertise and skills of the presenters. We emphasize that the primary
   criteria for evaluation will be whether a proposal is interesting,
   well-structured, and motivated, rather than the perceived
   experience/standing of the proposer.

Responsibilities (with respect to accepted proposals) AAMAS will be
responsible for:

   - Providing logistic support and a meeting place for the tutorial.
   - Together with the organizers, determining the tutorial date and time.
   - Advertising the availability of the tutorial material to the AAMAS
   2020 participants.

Tutorial organizers will be responsible for:

   - Providing AAMAS with a legible PDF copy of their tutorial notes by May
   6th, 2020.
   - Providing a web site for the tutorial, which will include title and
   abstract of the tutorial, presenters’ details, outline, tutorial notes and
   related reading material. The Tutorial co-chairs will ask the Tutorial
   organizers to follow some common format and style for their web sites, in
   order to make them as homogeneous as possible. More details will be
   provided upon acceptance.
   - Presenting the tutorial at AAMAS 2020.

AAMAS reserves the right to cancel any tutorial if the above
responsibilities are not fulfilled, if deadlines are missed, or if too few
attendees register for the tutorial to support the costs of running the
