Call for Tutorials

The FSE 2024 Tutorials track aims to provide participants with the opportunity to gain new insights, knowledge, and technical skills in a broad range of areas of software engineering.

We welcome proposals for tutorials on any topic related to software engineering. A tutorial may describe a software engineering activity (for example, the state-of-the-art in program analysis or automated test data generation), or it may describe a method or a technique that can be used in software engineering research and/or practice (for example, Natural Language Processing, grounded theory, or causal inference).

Tutorials at FSE are intended to provide independent instruction on topics that are relevant to software engineering practitioners and researchers. Therefore, no commercial or sales-oriented presentations will be accepted.

Potential tutorial presenters should note that the audience can have varying levels of expertise, ranging from novice graduate students to seasoned practitioners and researchers. A proposal should clearly indicate whether the proposed tutorial is prepared for the wide range of audiences, or for a specific subgroup within the community. Also bear in mind that not everyone will have English as their first language. We strongly recommend that presenters should provide comprehensive notes written in clear, standard English: idioms, irony, slang, and culture-specific references should be avoided.

Tutorials will be held 16-19 July 2024. Each tutorial will last 90 or 180 minutes.

Tutorial Proposal Guidelines

Proposal submissions should follow this structure:

  • Title of the tutorial
  • Name, affiliation, and email address of the presenter(s)
  • Abstract (max 300 words), suitable for posting on the conference website
  • Tutorial aims and objectives
  • Intended audience and required background
  • Relevance: please justify why this tutorial would be of interest to a broad section of the software engineering community
  • Format: lecture, hands-on session, group activity, etc.
  • Intended duration: 90 or 180 minutes.
  • Outline of the topics covered by the tutorial, with approximate timing
  • Key learning objectives for the participants
  • Presenter’s bio: 250-word bio of the presenter(s), stressing their qualification with respect to the tutorial topic
  • Tutorial history: list of previous editions of the tutorial (if any), including the dates, the venue, and the number of attendees.
  • Audio-visual and technical requirements
  • The proposal (excluding the sample slides) should be no longer than three (3) pages and must conform to the official ACM Template. LaTeX users must use:

\acmBooktitle{Proceedings of the 32nd ACM Symposium on the Foundations of Software Engineering (FSE '24), November 15--19, 2024, Porto de Galinhas, Brazil}
  • At least 3 representative sample slides from the intended tutorial presentation: please attach them at the end of the three-page proposal PDF document.

How to Submit

The proposal, as well as the sample slides, should be submitted in a single PDF (with all fonts included) through the online submission site:

NOTE: The official publication date is the date the proceedings are made available in the ACM Digital Library. This date may be up to two weeks prior to the first day of the conference. The official publication date affects the deadline for any patent filings related to published work.


The Tutorial committee will review each proposal and will select quality proposals that fit the evaluation criteria. Each proposal will be evaluated on its anticipated benefit for prospective participants and its fit within the program as a whole. Factors to be considered include: relevance, timeliness, importance, audience appeal; suitability for presentation in a 180-minute format; effectiveness of teaching methods; past experience and qualifications of the instructors.

Important Dates

  • Submission deadline: February 15, 2024
  • Acceptance: March 14th, 2024
  • Camera-ready Deadline: May 4, 2024
