Submissions and Review Process

Submissions will be curated for applicability to the PD conference. We are looking particularly for tutorials with relevance to the conference theme, and the local/societal context of PDC 2020.Therefore, those submissions that address or explore the conference theme will be favoured in the selection process. In the evaluation of the proposals the following will be the main evaluation criteria: relevance of topic to conference; knowledge and skills transfer; potential to draw participants.

Submission Formatting and Length

IMPORTANT: Submissions to this category should be made through the conftool system as explained in the «Submit» page. Proposals should include the tutorial’s title, goals, method or technique, its relevance to PD, intended participants and a schedule for the tutorial. Please describe in the proposal any handouts or materials that you intend to make available to participants. If authors anticipate the need of specific equipment or setup for running the tutorial  they should contact the workshop and tutorial chairs well in advance of the submission deadline.

Submissions should be submitted according to the appropriate template available on the submission page.

Submissions should be written in English and should not be longer than 3 pages. References do not count towards the page limits.
