Call for tutorials
The first day of ISMIR 2012 will consist of parallel sessions of tutorials, each lasting three hours and concentrating on a single topic. The tutorials are intended to provide a stimulating coverage of that topic appealing to a general audience.
See here for more details on tutorial submissions and selection.
As in previous years, ISMIR 2012 will also include a special track for demos and late-breaking news, on the last day of the conference. However, the format will change quite a bit from previous years... this year the conference track for demos and late-breaking results will be held in an "unconference" style: the program is built here beforehand with the help of participants, and the sessions are designed to foster interactions discussions rather than a more traditional lecture approach.
Everybody is welcome to contribute. There is no deadline, we will welcome ideas that emerge even during the conference.
There is a dedicated wiki for participating in this session.
