                 Call for Tutorial Lectures
            Ninth International Conference on
Generative Programming and Component Engineering
                    (GPCE 2010)

                 October 10-13, 2010
               Eindhoven, The Netherlands
               (co-located with SLE 2010)


As an experiment, GPCE and SLE have organized a joint tutorial day on
Sunday, October 2010.

The day will consist of a single plenary track with about six lectures
about topics of interest to the audience of GPCE and SLE.

The lectures will be about an hour in length; much longer than a
regular conference talk, but much shorter than the customary half or
even full day tutorials at other conferences.

In contrast to research talks, tutorials do not (have to) present
original new research material, but should rather focus on putting
research into perspective for a broader audience.

In contrast to longer tutorials, these lectures cannot be very
interactive or rely on the audience participating by using tools.
Rather they should aim to be 'keynote' style presentations,
emphasizing the essence (but not avoiding depth).

Another difference is that we will not charge separately for each
tutorial, as this appears to be the reason for low attendance of
tutorials at academic conferences. We will charge a single, low fee
for the entire day that gives access to all tutorials and the FOSD
workshop that will be held in parallel. We hope that this will ensure
high impact of the tutorials. Tutorial presenters get free admission
to the tutorials day, but due to the low fee we will not be able to
provide a honorarium; if the day is successful, we will consider
sharing any profits with tutorial presenters.


If you are interested in presenting a tutorial at GPCE/SLE, please
send a short proposal (about two pages) to e.visser at tudelft.nl by July
6, 2010. The proposal should consist of

 1. title
 2. abstract (250 words)
 3. name of presenter
 4. short bio (250 words)
 5. brief outline of tutorial
 6. relevance for GPCE/SLE audience

Items 1 to 4 should be usable on the website.

We will make a selection of tutorials based on relevance (topic-wise)
for the conference and expected interest in the tutorial. Tutorial
proposers will be notified of the decision by August 6, 2010.
