Call for Tutorials

Submissions due: April 16, 2019 (11:59 pm Anywhere on Earth)
FIRM deadline, no extensions

Context and scope:
The SC tutorials program is one of the highlights of the SC Conference series, and it is one of the largest tutorial programs at any computing-related conference in the world. It offers attendees the chance to learn from and to interact with leading experts in the most popular areas of high performance computing (HPC), networking, storage, and analysis.

SC tutorials cover a wide range of topics. The tutorials committee is soliciting proposals for full-day (six hours) or a half-day (three hours) tutorials on topics in the following areas (as well as others):
* Basic and introductory topics for expanding broader engagement
* Applications and application frameworks
* Algorithms, numerical methods, and libraries
* Software engineering for portable performance and scalability
* Parallel programming methods, models, languages and environments
* Software tools for accelerators (co-processors, GPGPUs, FPGA, etc.)
* Algorithmic, tools and runtime support for heterogeneous systems
* Performance evaluation and/or optimization tools
* Debugging and correctness tools
* High performance I/O, storage, archive, and file systems
* Scalable data mining and machine learning
* High performance networking technology
* Scientific and information visualization
* Systems, tools and techniques for energy efficiency
* Large systems administration and/or resource management
* The business aspects of HPC: data center planning
* Computer and network security
* Fault-tolerance, reliability, maintainability, and adaptability
* High performance computer architecture
* Clusters and distributed systems
* Embedded- and/or reconfigurable systems
* Emerging Technologies 

Review Process:
Submissions will be reviewed by the SC19 tutorials committee, which will consider among other factors:
* Insights offered, in breadth and/or depth
* Quality of the proposal (clarity, completeness, and cohesiveness of the proposal, quality of the visual aids)
* Relevance for the SC19 audience and suitability for a tutorial
* Timeliness of the topic
* Potential audience appeal
* Presentation history and teaching/speaking experience of the presenters
* For "hands-on" tutorials, evidence that demos or live exercises have been thoroughly tested
