Call for Tutorials

The ESEC/FSE 2022 Tutorials track provides conference participants with the opportunity to gain new insights, knowledge, and skills in a broad range of areas of software engineering.

We invite proposals for tutorials on topics related to software engineering. A tutorial may describe a software engineering activity, such as the state-of-the-art in program analysis, or it may describe a method, technique, or technology used in software engineering (research and/or practice), such as natural language processing, Bayesian statistics, or grounded theory.

Tutorials are intended to provide independent instruction on a topic of relevance to software engineering practitioners and researchers. Therefore, no commercial or sales-oriented presentations will be accepted.

Potential presenters should keep in mind that there may be quite a varied audience, including novice graduate students, seasoned practitioners, and specialized researchers. They should be prepared to cope with this diversity unless they make clear that the tutorial is oriented to a particular subgroup. Also bear in mind that not everyone will have English as their first language. Thus, presenters should provide comprehensive notes written in clear, standard English. Idioms, irony, slang, and culture-specific references should be avoided.

Tutorials will be held after the main conference, on November 17-18, 2022. Each tutorial will last 180 minutes (including break time).

Tutorial Proposal Guidelines

Proposal submissions should follow this structure:

  • Title of the tutorial
  • Name, affiliation, and email address of the presenter(s)
  • Abstract (max 300 words), suitable for posting on the conference web site
  • Tutorial aims and objectives
  • Intended audience and required background
  • Relevance: justification of why the topic would be of interest to a broad section of the software engineering community
  • Format: lecture, hands-on session, group activity, etc.
  • Outline of the topics covered by the tutorial, with approximate timing
  • Key learning objectives for the participants
  • Presenter’s bio: 250-word bio of the presenter(s), stressing their qualification with respect to the tutorial topic
  • Tutorial history: list of previous editions of the tutorial (if any), including the dates, the venue, and the number of attendees.
  • Audio-visual and technical requirements
  • At least 3 representative sample slides from the intended tutorial presentation

The proposal (excluding the sample slides) should be no longer than three (3) pages and must conform to the official “ACM Primary Article Template”. LaTeX users must use \documentclass[sigconf]{acmart}.

How to Submit

The proposal, as well as the sample slides, should be submitted in a single PDF (with all fonts included) through the online submission site https://esecfse2022tutorials.hotcrp.com


The Tutorial committee will review each proposal and will select quality proposals that fit the evaluation criteria. Each proposal will be evaluated on its anticipated benefit for prospective participants and its fit within the program as a whole. Factors to be considered include: relevance, timeliness, importance, audience appeal; suitability for presentation in a 180-minute format; effectiveness of teaching methods; past experience and qualifications of the instructors.

Important Dates

  • Submission deadline: Friday June 10, 2022 (23:59 AoE)
  • Notification: Friday, July 8, 2022
