IEEE International Black Sea Conference on Communications and Networking
4–7 July 2023 // Istanbul, Türkiye
Immersive Bridging of Continents in the Era of Hyperconnectivity

Call for Tutorials


Proposal Submission Deadline: 31 March 2023
Tutorial Acceptance Notification: 14 April 2023
Draft Tutorial Materials Due for Posting: 1 June 2023
Tutorial Presentations: 4 July 2023

We seek to extend the IEEE BlackSeaCom experience by tutorials on selected topics given by renowned scientists and practitioners in their fields. We therefore solicit proposals for full-day or half-day tutorials on topics relevant to the communications and networking community. Tutorials may be lectures, interactive workshops, hands-on training, or any combination of the above. Successful tutorials educate the community members on emerging methods, concepts, and tools to expand the research capabilities of the community. Exploring diverse ways of interacting with the audience and cross disciplinary topics are welcome.

All tutorials will be part of the main conference technical program and will be available free of charge to the attendees of the conference. A tutorial can be for half a day, i.e., 3-4 hours of audience interaction, including questions, or a full day, which corresponds to 7 hours. Teams of 2-3 presenters are encouraged, though single-presenter tutorials are possible. Preference will be given to applications that involve at least one expert in the areas covered by the proposal.
