Call For Tutorials

24th International Conference on Distributed Computing and Networking (ICDCN 2023) invites submissions for Tutorial proposals on all topics listed below and more. Tutorial proposals should be no more than six (6) pages (excluding the biography of the presenters) and strictly follow the ACM conference style templates http://www.acm.org/publications/article-templates/proceedings-template.html. Tutorials are expected to take place in parallel with the workshops and main conference tracks of the conference. The length of each tutorial is supposed to be 1.5 – 2.5 hours (flexible).
