We invite proposals for tutorials and workshops to be held in conjunction with the ACM Conference on Economics and Computation (ACM EC) in London, England. More information about the format, e.g., in-person, virtual, or hybrid, is included in the following call and will be reevaluated if needed. The workshops are currently planned as an in-person event, with a precise time within the window July 9-12 to be determined, conditions permitting, but requests for virtual workshops will also be considered under special circumstances. The tutorials are planned to be held virtually during June 20-23.
Tutorials provide an opportunity to educate the community about emerging topics of interest, or about topics from related fields that merit additional attention from the EC community. A tutorial is an opportunity to invite colleagues and young researchers to get excited about a well-defined topic, to prepare them to dive into the literature, and to guide them to the most exciting developments and open problems. Tutorials consist of a series of presentations by experts in the field. Given the virtual format this year, we recommend 2-hour tutorials, organized as two 45-minute sessions separated by a 30-minute break, but we welcome requests for an alternative duration or format in the proposals.
Tutorial proposals should ideally be 2-3 pages long and should contain:
- the title of the tutorial
- keywords / sub-area within economics and computation
- the names, affiliations, email addresses, and short biographies of the organizers
- suggested duration and organization/format of the tutorial
- a short (1 paragraph) abstract of the tutorial
- a detailed outline of the tutorial content
- goals, importance, and timeliness of the tutorial
- target audience and prerequisite knowledge assumed
- a list of previous venues where the same or a similar tutorial has appeared
- (optional) required facilities for the tutorial
- (optional) any supplementary materials such as past tutorial slides
Tutorial proposals should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Workshops provide an opportunity to bring together researchers to discuss emerging areas of research in an informal forum. Workshop schedules should be designed to promote discussion and debate. A workshop may include invited talks, contributed talks, panel discussions, poster sessions, open problem sessions, presentations of work in progress, or any other activities that stimulate new ideas for research. It is up to the workshop organizers to determine the format and technical content of each workshop and to solicit contributions, but we encourage workshops that devote some time to contributed content.
Workshop proposals should contain:
- the title of the workshop
- the names, contact information, and short biographies of the organizers
- the names of confirmed or candidate participants
- a description of the workshop theme
- the reviewing process for participants
- the organization/format of the workshop
- any previous versions of the workshop
- required facilities for the workshop
- the desired workshop length (half day, full day, etc.)
For accepted workshops, the desired length will be honored as closely as possible. By default workshops are planned as half or full day in-person events on July 13, conditions permitting. Proposals for virtual workshops will be considered under special circumstances (e.g., mentoring workshops, travel restrictions) and those virtual workshops will be held 1-2 weeks before EC.
We especially encourage proposals that bring together participants with diverse backgrounds and experience.
Workshop proposals should be emailed to email@example.com.
