                            CALL FOR TUTORIALS

                  CBSoft 2010 -- 1st Brazilian Conference on
                        Software: Theory and Practice

                      27 September - 1 October, 2010
                            Salvador, Brazil



The 1st Brazilian Conference on "Software: Theory and Practice" is an
event created to aggregate three traditional and well-established

- XXIV Brazilian Symposium on Software Engineering (SBES)
- XIV Brazilian Symposium on Programming Languages (SBLP)
- IV Brazilian Symposium on Components, Software Architecture and
Software Reuse (SBCARS)

Tutorials and keynote speeches have been delivered in every edition by
both well-established local researchers and widely-recognized
international speakers, such as Len Bass, Anthony Filkenstein, David
Garlan, Carlos Hulot, Barbara Kitchenham, Jeff Krammer, Nenad
Medvidovic, Gail Murphy, Jaejoon Lee, Peter Mosses, Dirk Muthig, Jens
Palsberg, Simon Peyton-Jones, Kevin Sullivan, Richard Taylor, Jan
Vitek, and Jon Whittle, just to name a few. These events altogether
attract around 1.000 participants, similar to premier international
conferences, such as OOPSLA (SPLASH) and ICSE. The audience includes
undergraduate and postgraduate students and practitioners, which come
from Brazil, South America, and beyond. In general, the attendance of
tutorials is quite impressive, ranging from 30 to 70 participants. The
conference is organized by the Brazilian Computer Society and also
annually supported by respected international groups, such as ACM

The conference is going to run from September 27 to October 1st and
the venue is one of the most popular touristic cities in Brazil:
Salvador -- BA. Salvador is located on the northeast coast of Brazil on
the Atlantic Ocean and is the third largest city of Brazil. Salvador
has a tropical climate, several breathtaking beaches and lush
vegetation. Local residents enjoy sharing their exotic dancing and
music skills with tourists. The locals are also considered some of the
friendliest and most outgoing people in Brazil. The cuisine in
Salvador consists of spicy seafood and the culture is one of the most
distinguished on the planet. For more information, please visit:


This call is intended to solicit the submission of tutorial proposals
to the CBSoft 2010 Conference. The text of the proposal can be written
either in English or Portuguese. Each tutorial should be presented in
a session of 3 hours. The one-page tutorial summary will be published
in the conference proceedings. The access to the tutorial material
will be available on-line to the tutorial participants.

The goal of the tutorial session is to expose new, emerging topics and
concepts on software development, or topics and technologies with
growing impact on academia or software market. The theme of the
tutorial must be associated with one or more topics that are relevant
to the 3 symposia mentioned above: SBES, SBLP e SBCARS. The proponents
must have wide knowledge and experience in the tutorial theme. Both
introductory and advanced tutorials on theoretical and practical
aspects of software development are welcomed. The introductory
tutorials must offer an opportunity to systematically expose new
knowledge to the participants, and are targeted at undergrad students
in an advanced stage, postgraduate students, and software development
practitioners. Advanced tutorials should trigger new insights for
advancing the state-of-the-art on the research topic being addressed;
they are targeted at junior and senior researchers and specialists
interested or working on such a research topic.

The CBSoft program includes, in addition to the tutorials, technical
sessions and invited talks associated with the 3 events mentioned
above. Moreover, it embraces panels, tool sessions, workshops and
other satellite events.


Submission of proposals: May 12, 2010
Notification to authors: June 18, 2010
Submission of tutorial summary for the proceedings: July 15, 2010
Presentation material: August 2, 2010


All the tutorial proposals should include the following items:

1. Title of the tutorial, name, affiliation, e-mail and URL of the
authors. Indicate if all (or a subset of the) authors plan to act as
instructors during the tutorial day.

2. Type (introductory or advanced), language (English or Portuguese)
and a short summary (max. of 200 words) describing the main goal of
the tutorial.

3. Target audience of the tutorial, and justifications of the proposal
relevance to one or more of the 3 conference events: SBES, SBLP e
SBCARS.(one page)

4. Resources and equipments needed.

5. The proposed structure of the tutorial, including session titles
and  a brief description (Max. 2 paragraphs) for each session.

6. References (no more than one page).

7. If applicable, please indicate which conferences (or other events)
the proposed tutorial was (or will be) presented.

8. A short bio for each author (max. one paragraph per authors), and
URLs for your CV (or website). Brazilian authors should also indicate
the URLs for their CVs in the Lattes platform.

Please do not include any extra information in addition to the issues
described above.

The proposals should be submitted electronically, in PDF format,
through the JEMS on-line system, which will be accessible from the
conference website (to be available soon).


The tutorial proposals will be reviewed and selected by a program
committee (TBA soon), formed by well-known researchers on three
communities of the CBSoft conference: software engineering in general,
programming languages, and software architecture and reuse. The
evaluation criteria include: relevance of the tutorial to one or more
of the three CBSoft events; adequacy of the tutorial theme for the
time slot  (3 hours); ability to attract participants; proposed
methodology for tutorial delivery; and, experience and qualification
of the authors and instructors. The committee has the right of
rejecting tutorial proposals and proactively inviting researchers for
delivering tutorials at the conference.

The tutorial must be presented in the language used in the written
proposal. The authors should register in the CBSoft 2010 conference in
order to have the confirmation of their tutorial in the program. The
number of accepted tutorials depends both on the quality of the
proposals submitted and the number of rooms available at the
conference venue. The organization of the tutorials in the program
will be made by the CBSoft organizing committee.

For additional information, please do not hesitate to contact the
coordinator of the Tutorials Sessions:
