The goal of the tutorial program of ARCS 2012 is to provide independent instruction on topics related to computer architecture and operating systems research. For a guide on what topic areas, technologies and communities fall within the ARCS focus refer to the Call for Papers, available on the conference website.

We are planning for half-day (approx. 3.0 hours with one 30 minutes break) and full-day (approx. 6.0 hours with two 30 minutes breaks and a lunch break) durations. A tutorial may cover a wide scope of topics ranging from practical techniques and guidelines over standards to theoretical work. Please note that no marketing or product specific tutorials will be accepted. Tutorial levels may be introductory, intermediate, or advanced. Topics of broad interest are preferred.


Tutorial proposals will be evaluated by the organizing committee according to their relevance to the ARCS community and how they fit into the overall tutorial program. Further factors that may affect the review include the reputation and previous teaching experience of the proposer as well as the attractiveness of the proposed topic.


Tutorial proposals must not be longer than three pages. A proposal should include:
  • Title of the tutorial
  • Preferred and potential duration(s) (half-day, full-day)
  • Contact information of all presenters (name, affiliation, email address, full postal address, phone and fax number, URL of personal homepage)
  • Short bio of all presenters including prior teaching and tutorial experiences
  • Description of the material covered by the tutorial not exceeding two pages (approx. 1500 words) including a structure of the presented content
  • Identification of the target audience (e.g., researchers, teachers, practitioners, students)
  • Level (introductory, advanced) and prerequisites
  • References of publications (books, papers etc.) the tutorial builds on
  • Indication whether the submission of a tutorial paper (see below) is planned

The proposals should be submitted as PDF document via email to the tutorial chair:
Jan Richling, TU Berlin, Germany


Proposers of accepted tutorials will be given the opportunity to submit a tutorial paper. Please note that submitting a tutorial paper is optional. The content of a tutorial paper must directly relate to the material covered by the tutorial and must not exceed 10 pages. The author kit containing templates for the required style can be found here:

Submitted tutorial papers will be reviewed by the organizing committee prior publication. The organizing committee reserves the right to refuse the publication of tutorial papers if, for example, the technical quality of the paper is insufficient or the content of the paper does not match the topic of the tutorial. Accepted tutorial papers will be published in the GI Edition - Lecture Notes in Informatics (LNI) series.
