Call for Tutorials


The IEEE ICA 2023 organizers invite proposals for the Tutorial Program of the 7th IEEE International Conference on Agents (IEEE ICA 2023). The tutorials will be held on the 4th of December, 2023. The aim of the program is to provide an opportunity for researchers and practitioners to spend half a day exploring exciting advances in agent research. We believe that this type of program is essential for the vitality of the field.

The IEEE ICA 2023 Tutorials should serve one or more of the following goals:

  • Familiarize researchers from other fields with the fundamentals of the agent paradigm.
  • Introduce the practices and methodologies of agent research.
  • Survey the well-established theories of agent research.
  • Present innovative applications of agent research to society.
  • Introduce the agent community to topics and perspectives from other fields.

The areas of interest may include those listed in the main track of the conference.
Call for Papers

Important Dates

  • Proposal Submission Deadline : September 1st, 2023
  • Notification of Acceptance : September 15th, 2023
  • Tutorial Site Available on the Web : October 1st, 2023
  • IEEE ICA 2023 Tutorials : December 4th, 2023

Proposal Submission

Tutorials are intended to provide an overview of the agent field. They should present reasonably well-established knowledge in a balanced way. Tutorials should not be used to advocate a single avenue of research, nor should they promote a product. Each tutorial is expected to last half a day.

Proposals should be no more than three pages long, excluding the resumes of the presenters and the supplementary materials. Tutorial proposals for IEEE ICA 2023 should contain the following information:

  • Title of the tutorial.
  • Acronym of the tutorial.
  • The name and email address of the presenter(s).
  • Keywords of different granularity. For example, a tutorial on “Sentiment Analysis” should use keywords such as Machine Learning, Natural Language Processing, Deep-Learning, or Transformers.
  • Suggested duration of the tutorial. The timeline will be determined according to the demographic distribution of the participants. We will decide it together with the tutorial instructor.
  • Brief tutorial description, suitable for inclusion in the conference registration brochure.
  • Detailed outline of the tutorial.
  • Supplementary material, such as past tutorial slides, survey articles, etc.
  • Characterization of the target audience for the tutorial.
  • Estimated number of participants: Please estimate the audience size (a large audience is not always preferable).
  • Prerequisite knowledge: What knowledge is assumed of the target audience?
  • Motivations on why the tutorial topic would be of interest to the ICA audience? What will the audience walk away with?
  • Brief résumé of the presenter(s), including:
    • Name.
    • Current positions: Doctoral Student, Postdoc, Professor, Researcher, etc.
    • Affiliation.
    • Postal address.
    • Phone and fax numbers.
    • Email address.
    • Background in the tutorial area.
    • Any available example of work in the area, ideally a published tutorial-level article or presentation materials, evidence of teaching experiences such as courses taught or references that address the proposer's presentation skills, and evidence of scholarship in Artificial Intelligence or Computer Science.

The evaluation of the proposal will consider the level of general interest for the IEEE ICA 2023 attendees, the quality of the proposal, and the expertise and skills of the presenters. The selection of the tutorials will be based on a number of factors, including:

  • The scientific and technical relevance of the topics.
  • The quality of the proposal.
  • The need to avoid strictly overlapping tutorials.
  • The unavoidable need to limit the overall number of selected tutorials.


For all accepted proposals, IEEE ICA 2023 will be responsible for the following:

  • Providing publicity for the tutorials.
  • Providing logistic support and a meeting place for the tutorials.
  • Together with the organizers, determining the date and time of the tutorials.

The organizers of the tutorials will be responsible for the following:

  • Provide a link to the tutorial Website by the deadline indicated above. The Website must contain the title and abstract of the tutorial, the details of the presenter(s), the outline of the tutorial, the tutorial notes, and any related reading material. The Tutorial Co-Chairs will request the Tutorial organizers to adopt a particular format and style for their Websites to make them as homogeneous as possible.
  • Presenting the tutorial at IEEE ICA 2023.

Submission Procedure

Proposals must be submitted as a PDF file to the Tutorial Co-Chairs ( Please organize all the information into one single PDF file. If it is necessary to refer to information in another format, such as a video, the link to this material should be available in the submitted PDF. All tutorial submissions will be acknowledged via email two weeks after their submission.
