12/23/08 UPDATE **** NEW THIS YEAR **** There will be several "hands-on" tutorials in which attendees will have the opportunity to test and work with some of the most popular software toolkits used in VR and AR. Check the Advance Program for more information.

Learning and sharing knowledge are at the heart of our success. Interested parties are invited to submit proposals for full-day or half-day tutorials to be presented on March 14 or 15 2009. (Workshops and the 3DUI symposium will also be held on these two days.)

Proposed tutorials may address topics of interest to the VR, mixed or augmented reality, or 3D user interface communities, and may be at an introductory or advanced level. Proposals will be evaluated on the basis of the tutorial's importance and suitability for presentation in a tutorial format, as well as the qualifications of the instructors, the overall balance in the tutorial program, and the likely attendance of the tutorial.

Proposals are welcome on topics that have been previously addressed; new approaches or insights are especially valued. Submissions should include a statement indicating how proposals differ from recent tutorial presentations that may have had a similar topic.

Proposals for tutorials should be submitted electronically and should include a title for the tutorial, proposed length, a brief description of the topics to be addressed, including time allotted to each (roughly 500 words), the level and intended audience, the expected value to that audience, and the names, contact information and a short biography (roughly 100 words each) for the proposed instructors. Also include whether the tutorial has been held before (where and when), and if so, why it should be held again.

Some compensation is provided for tutorial presentations.

The deadline for tutorial submissions is: November 14, 2008

Tutorials submissions must be submitted via email to the Tutorials Chairs at
