Call for Tutorials

Call for Tutorials- now closed

The ISCAS 2014 Organising Committee invites proposals for half-day and full-day tutorials to be conducted on June 1, 2014, the first day of ISCAS 2014, held at Melbourne, Australia.

Tutorials are an integral function of ISCAS where instructors have the opportunity to share their expertise on a specific field/research with fellow researchers and those who wish to discover said field/research. We are soliciting proposals for topics of academic and industrial/application(s) interests. These topics may be established or it may be emerging – and with profound and/or new insights thereto, that is best articulated by means of an oral presentation. Most importantly, tutorials should be interesting with lively interaction with the attendees – interesting and fun!

Congruous with the diversity of the Circuits and Systems Society, “…across disciplines to address humanity’s grand challenges by conceiving and pioneering solutions to fundamental and applied problems in circuits and systems”, we encourage tutorial proposals submissions, including but not limited to:

  • Analog Signal Processing
  • Biomedical Circuits and Systems
  • Cellular Neural Networks and Array Computing
  • Circuits and Systems for Communications
  • Circuits and Systems for Video Technology
  • Computer-Aided Network Design
  • Digital Signal Processing
  • Education in Circuits and Systems
  • Live Demonstrations of Circuits and Systems
  • Life-Science Systems and Applications
  • Multimedia Systems and Applications
  • Nanoelectronics and Gigascale Systems
  • Neural Systems and Applications
  • Nonlinear Circuits and Systems
  • Power Systems and Power Electronic Circuits
  • Sensory Systems
  • Visual Signal Processing and Communications
  • VLSI Systems and Applications

Proposals, prepared in a one-column PDF file, should include the following information:

  • Title of the tutorial
  • Area of the tutorial (refer to the list above)
  • 300 Word Abstract (for inclusion in registration materials)
  • Keywords
  • Format of tutorial (1/2 day or 1 day)
  • Instructor(s) and their credentials (2-page CV for each instructor)
  • Previous offerings of tutorials, if any
  • Learning objectives
  • Target audience and prerequisite knowledge of audience
  • Full description (1-2 pages to be used for evaluation)
