Call for Tutorials

The ISCAS 2015 Organizing Committee invites proposals for tutorials to be conducted on May 24, 2015, the first day of ISCAS, held in Lisbon, Portugal, from May 24 to 27, 2015. Tutorials are an integral part of ISCAS where instructors have the opportunity to share their expertise on a specific field/research with fellow researchers and those who wish to discover said field/research. We are
soliciting proposals for half-day and full-day tutorials that present current topics in circuits and systems related research and development, considering both academic and industrial/applications interests. These topics may be established or they may be emerging – and with profound and/or new insights thereto, that is best articulated by means of an oral presentation. Most importantly, tutorials should be interesting with lively interaction with the attendees. We are interested in tutorials capable of attracting a wide audience, being broad enough to provide an introduction to the chosen topic, as well as to cover the cutting-edge contributions in depth. Proposals that exclusively focus on the instructor’s own work or commercial presentation are not eligible.

We encourage submissions of tutorial proposals on the ISCAS topics, including but not limited to:
  • Analog Signal Processing
  • Biomedical and Life Science Circuits and Systems
  • Cellular Neural Networks and Array Computing
  • Circuits and Systems for Communications
  • Computer Aided Network Design
  • Digital Signal Processing
  • Education in Circuits and Systems
  • Live Demonstrations of Circuits and Systems
  • Multimedia Systems and Applications
  • Nanoelectronics and Gigascale Systems
  • Neural Systems and Applications
  • Nonlinear Circuits and Systems
  • Power and Energy Circuits and Systems
  • Sensory Systems
  • Visual Signal Processing and Communications
  • VLSI Systems and Applications
Proposals, prepared in a one-column PDF file, should include the following information:
  • Title of the tutorial
  • Area of the tutorial (refer to the above list of topics)
  • 300-word abstract (for inclusion in registration materials)
  • Keywords
  • Format of tutorial (1/2 day or 1 day)
  • Instructor(s) and their credentials (2-page CV for each instructor)
  • Previous offerings of tutorials, if any
  • Learning objectives
  • Target audience and prerequisite knowledge of audience
  • Full description (1-2 pages to be used for evaluation)
