Call for Tutorials

2017 IEEE International Conference on Big Knowledge (ICBK 2017) will feature a number of tutorials that are intended to provide an opportunity for participants from academia, industry and other related parties to learn the fundamental issues as well as the emergent trends within the scope of knowledge engineering with big data. We welcome proposals for tutorials, full-day or half-day, on all the relevant topics to ICBK 2017. Tutorials should be of interest to a substantial part of the ICBK audience and represent a sufficiently mature area of research or practice.

For each accepted tutorial, the IEEE provides a complimentary registration and an honorarium of US$500. The tutorial presenters need to provide their own travel and hotel expenses.
