Topics of Interest

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Reproducibility Concepts
  • Experiment dependency management.
  • Experiment portability for code, performance, and related metrics.
  • Software and artifact packaging and container-related reproducibility methods.
  • Data versioning and preservation.
  • Provenance of data-intensive experiments.
  • Reproducible builds.
  • Reproducibility-aware computational infrastructure.
  • Experiment discoverability for re-use.
  • Approaches for advancing reproducibility.

For an in-depth list of topics, see also the ACM REP ‘23 Call for Papers.

Submission Guidelines

Tutorial proposals should be submitted in PDF format via the HotCRP submission site:…. The authors should follow the single-column ACM format (see acmsmall) .

Proposal Information

  • Title and abstract of the tutorial
  • Name, email address, affiliation and brief professional biography of the tutorial instructor(s).
  • Tutorial description:
    • learning objectives of the tutorial and relevance to ACM REP 2023
    • targeted audience (introductory, intermediate, advanced) and prerequisite knowledge or skills; a brief outline of the tutorial structure; practical sessions.
  • Tutorial length: full (6 hours) or half day (3 hours).
  • Any special equipment/software needs for the tutorial

Tutorial Online Presence

Accepted tutorials will be required to prepare a tutorial web page containing detailed information about the tutorial content, schedule and organization. Tutorial organizers are also responsible for the timely production and distribution of all material to be used during the tutorial (slides, notes, technical articles, etc.). In the case of a hands-on tutorial requiring software, it is strongly recommended that organizers place any software prerequisites online for participants to download and install before the start of the tutorial.

Tutorial Format

We encourage tutorial proponents to decide and motivate if and why their tutorial works (only) in an in-person, hybrid, or online format.

Evaluation Criteria

The decision on acceptance or rejection of tutorial proposals will be made on the basis of the overall quality of the proposal and its appeal to a reasonable fraction of the ACM REP community.

In particular, tutorials are encouraged to consider the following guidelines:

  • The research topic falls in the general scope of the conference.
  • There is a clear focus on a specific technology, problem or application.
  • There is an anticipation of a sufficiently large community interested in the topic.
  • There is a concrete plan for the tutorial format including exercises or other types of hands-on work.

All submitted tutorial proposals will be evaluated based on the following criteria:

  • ability of the tutorial to contribute to strengthening the ACM REP community;
  • clarity and quality of the tutorial, which should emerge from its description;
  • good organization, as appearing from the outline;
  • the value of any materials released with the tutorial for the community; background/experience of tutorial instructor(s) in teaching the target topics.
