Call for Tutorials

ISBI 2024 Call for Tutorials

We welcome proposals for tutorials, which will provide educational material for all career levels including students, early career scientists, professionals seeking continued education, and established researchers. Tutorials should be organized by expert researchers and scientists. Gender balance and diversity in race, geographical location, institution, and seniority are highly desired in the tutorial organization team. Tutorials should focus on a specific topic relevant to the ISBI community, e.g., methodology/algorithm, clinical application, emerging technology, or software tool. Tutorials covering aspects of open science, reproducible research, and soft skills development are also welcome.

Tutorials are expected to be self-contained, i.e., some part of the tutorial may need to be spent on covering necessary background information. Tutorials should not focus exclusively on the results or tools of the organizers or their organizations and should be reflective of the research within the wider biomedical imaging community.

Tutorials format

The tutorial format may combine lectures, demonstrations, and hands-on sessions. Each tutorial will last 2-3 hours with a break in the middle.

How to propose a tutorial

Proposals should be no more than four (4) pages (excluding biosketches) in 12-point font submitted as a single PDF file. Tutorial proposals should contain:

  • Title, topic overview and expected learning outcomes.
  • Relevance to ISBI community. Emerging topics will be favorably considered if the link with the ISBI community is clearly established.
  • Content details: Provide a detailed outline of the topics to be presented.
  • Format: How will you present the educational material (lectures, demonstrations, and hands-on sessions)? What software or programming languages might be involved?
  • Target audience: From which areas do you expect potential participants to come? What prior knowledge or skills, if any, do you expect from the audience?
  • Description of the course packs (including slides and other educational material) that will be distributed to the audience in hardcopy and/or electronic format. All such material must be free from copyright issues and should be submitted in advance to the Tutorials Chairs (see Important dates below).
  • Expertise of organizers: Please provide names, affiliations, email addresses, and short biosketches (covering expertise related to the topic of the tutorial) for each organizer. If there are multiple organizers, please describe how the time will be divided between them.
