60th Annual North American Meetings of the RSAI: CALL FOR WORKSHOPS & TUTORIALS

60th Annual North American Meetings of the Regional Science Association International

Atlanta, Georgia, November 13-16, 2013



In conjunction with the 2013 NARSC meetings, one day of workshops and tutorials will be held on Wednesday, November 13th.


Workshops should provide a platform for presenting and discussing ideas in a less-formal and more open way than is possible in a conference setting. Thus, they should provide an excellent opportunity for researchers to present work in progress and obtain detailed feedback, and should have ample time allocated for discussion and participation by all attendees. Workshops are welcome in all topics of interest to NARSC attendees, with the proviso that new and emerging areas of research are especially welcome.

Workshop proposals should be less than 1500 words, and must include the following:

* Title of the workshop

* Description of topics to be covered

* Scope and novelty of the workshop

* Workshop organizer(s) and their qualifications

* Format of workshop (1/2 day, 1 day)

* Highlights (e.g. keynotes, panels, other modes of discussion)

* Expected number of participants

* Details of any previous related workshops


Tutorials are an innovative way of covering a single topic in detail, to cover a Regional Science topic in depth or introduce emerging research area. A tutorial should last either a full (two sessions of three hours) or half (one session of three hours) day.  Tutorials may include activities or exercises for participants.

Tutorial proposals should be less than 2000 words, and must address all of the following issues:

* Title of the tutorial

* Description of topics and relevance to NARSC community

* Tutorial organizer(s) and their qualifications

* Format of tutorial (1/2 day, 1 day)

* Tutorial outline, indicating overall learning objectives and individual course elements

* Intended audience (introductory, advanced) and any background knowledge or skills required

* Required materials (e.g. will you need internet access, lab access, specific software installed?)

* Expected number of participants


All workshops and tutorial proposals should be submitted by e-mail to Neil Reid (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) by April 26, 2013. All proposals will be reviewed by the organizing committee. Successful proposals will be notified by May 8, 2013. Please note that workshops or tutorials which receive do not achieve sufficient enrollment will be canceled.
