SBBD 2013 invites submissions of tutorial proposals. Each tutorial will be presented in a 3 hours session. Only an abstract (1-2 pages) of the accepted tutorials, including bibliographic references, will be published in the symposium proceedings. However, copies of the presentation slides will be also required before the event for distribution to the tutorial attendees.
We will consider proposals for introductory and advanced tutorials on any topic within the area of databases. Introductory tutorials should target an audience consisting of advanced undergraduate and graduate students, as well as attendees from industry. Hence, they can be thought of as “recycling” courses though they should not be about traditional “textbook” topics. Advanced tutorials, on the other hand, must cover a topic’s state-of-the-art, motivating and exposing potential research issues.

Instructions for Authors

Proposals must be no more than 5 pages, using an 11 pt or larger font, and must include the following items (in this order):

  • Tutorial title, authors’ name, affiliations, e-mails and URL of the respective home pages (if available).
  • If the proposed tutorial has been given previously, where this tutorial has been presented before and how it will be modified for SBBD 2013.
  • Tutorial type (introductory or advanced).
  • The intended audience and its assumed background.
  • The language the tutorial will be presented (English or Portuguese).
  • An abstract (no more the 100 words) stating the tutorial’s main goal.
  • Outline of the tutorial (list of topics and brief description of how these are to be covered).
  • List of (up to 10) related references
  • A brief bio of authors (up to 20 lines/author).
  • The name of whom will present the tutorial, in case of a tutorial proposed by more than one author.
  • Audio-visual equipment required (e.g. overhead or multimedia projector).


Subject to funding availability, SBBD may provide a travel allowance for one tutorial presenter. If the presenter requires this funding, make sure it is clear in the proposal. The presenting author will be required to register for the symposium. SBBD reserves the right to refuse all of the submitted tutorial proposals, as well as to include invited tutorial presentations.
